The only child of a single mother, I grew up on outer Cape Cod, Massachusetts (the most beautiful beaches!), and in New Haven, Connecticut (the best pizza! COME AT ME NEW YORK). My mom and I have a blog where we comment on great television. Don’t get her started on Baltar from Battlestar Galactica.
I have a big affection for kids and volunteer with some phenomenal ones at Camp AmeriKids, which exists to enhance the lives of youth living with the challenges of HIV/AIDS and sickle cell disease. I’ve been playing with them since 2012 and often head up the drama program there.
I recently moved back east after five years in Los Angeles, where I worked as a personal assistant to the incomparably talented and hilarious Gena Rowlands, booked both my first national commercial and my first lead role in an independent feature film, and did not receive a single parking ticket.
I'm now in New York so I can be in the same time zone as my fiancé and have re-signed with my wonderful Boston agent at Maggie Inc. I'm currently seeking representation in New York and totally take back what I just said about pizza.
