I was born and raised in Cleveland, OH!

My family has always been insanely supportive of anything I've wanted to do.  I started my adventures off young; 5 years old to be exact, when I started Tae Kwon Do. Through the next decade or so, I earned my 2nd Degree Black Belt (still one of my favorite accomplishments!). I later found an interest in more sports: Hockey, Lacrosse, and Diving. 

My love for music has ALWAYS been huge. From playing the Viola in orchestra, to playing Clarinet and Saxophone in Concert, Jazz and Marching Bands. Eventually I decided to push it further and joined an Acapella choir, an Acapella men's group, and show choir. I discovered the love for singing that led me to do my first big musical RAGTIME, playing Coalhouse Walker Jr. From then on, it was set!

I finished up high school and left Shaker Heights for "Steel Town;" PITTSBURGH. I attended Point Park University's Conservatory of Performing Arts and in 2014, graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Musical Theatre. Shortly thereafter, I packed up my things, and moved here, to my new home, New York City! 

Now,

This Is A Story All About How...
