Born and raised in the Garden State, I guess one would consider me a Jersey Girl. As a native of New Jersey, I attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick and earned my BA in Communication and Information Studies with a minor in Theater Arts. After graduating, I found myself at a full time job in sales with a sense of unfullfilment. I remember sitting with my grandmother watching Live with Regis and Kelly and her saying to me, "You should be next to him, you have the personality and looks to be on tv". I had dabbled in modeling in my teens, received first place at a local pageant, was a cheerleader in highschool and had taken the stage as a dancer for over ten years. I knew I loved to perform, but was I ready to leave the security of a full time job and jump into the unknown? I thought of my grandmother's words so many times when contemplating that huge decision and what a huge inspiration she had been to me, and realized I was ready for that next step. It was and continues to be the best decision I ever made.
Being an actor, model and author has allowed me to travel and meet so many amazing people over the years. I enjoy all genres of the business, but my love lies in film. It's a medium that provides an escape for people, two hours of not worrying about the mundane but being swept away into another world. From comedy to drama, I'm living my dream and looking forward to future opportunities in show business!
