I was born and raised in Elmhurst Queens New York. Basketball, video games, and orchestral instrumentals are loves of mine. And surfing! (the one time I did it) "The Lion" was my first role in second grade and I fell in love with the craft.
I learned about the physical toughness needed to perform on stage at City College. Later I honed in on the mental toughness and focus needed to be honest in front of a camera at The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts. I graduated NYCDA and was selected as one of 20 students to perform in front a jury of industry personnel. I continued down that path of truth for years after that. Or at least tried.
I write and direct with friends. Acting holds everything in my heart at the moment. I'm driven to use that tool to bring the most honest presence possible. To any genre. Any moment. Any story. I hope to empower those who are underrepresented in film while hopefully being a part of the most impactful stories ever told.
