A Little Bit About Me.
Born and raised in the Western suburbs of Chicago, I am through and through a Midwestern girl.
I grew up in the suburbs of a cosmopolitan city, but also on a lake in rural Illinois. I am as comfortable in the urban jungle as I am in the rolling hills of the plains. I have been very athletic my whole life and some of my favorite activities include swimming, scuba diving, downhill and cross-country skiing, tennis, running, yoga, and boxing. I played soccer in high school and rowed eights for my university in England. I also played percussion for 14 years, including touring with the University of Michigan Drumline.
Any spare hour I have is usually spent reading, writing, and running. I love hiking, biking, and camping on the weekends. I have travelled extensively throughout my life and below is a small taste of my adventures.
I am a full time actor and model based in New York City. I trained with William Esper and at the People's Improv Theater. I have shot with Patrick Demarchelier and Steven Meisel. I am a commercial print model and also do fit modeling, shoe, hair, beauty, hosting and more. I am teleprompter and ear prompter proficient. I am an experienced voiceover artist and I freelance with several agencies for various aspects of the industry.
Beyond my on-camera life, I am an experienced event coordinator and marketing specialist, having worked for several companies in New York City. Currently I am pursuing the global launch of my own company; a product in the fashion/healthcare space. Details can be disclosed to the right people.
