I’m originally a Maryland girl but I’ve been in New York City long enough to officially call myself a New Yorker. A bit of a brainiac, in high school I was chosen for a special program at the National Institutes of Health that promoted women and minorities in the sciences. I spent two summers and a school year in the Malaria Lab at the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases. I then went on to Williams College — according to latest U.S. News and World Report, Ephs are #1! Plus Williamstown is home of the Williamstown Theatre Festival. I graduated cum laude with a B.A. in both English and Anthropology, and was active in the acting community as a member of Setshwantso, a women's theater group.

I headed to The Big Apple right after college and am happy to be a working actress and model. I am currently co-creator of a comedic web series titled “Friends or Just Roomies?” in which I also co-star. Other projects are the short film Soul Mates, which has been accepted to four film festivals, including the Hollywood Black Film Festival; an independent TV pilot “For Brothers”; the full-length play Yeah Girl, Whatever, produced by the Dramatic Question Theatre; and a print ad for the NFL (Go Steelers!).

I have worked with Broadway veterans Arthur French (most recently on-stage with Cicely Tyson in A Trip to Bountiful), Blanche Baker, and Ray Aranha. And my work has been reviewed by Showbusiness Weekly and Backstage. My film projects have been selected for several film festivals.  Soul Mates, a short film in which I have one of the lead roles, has been accepted to four film festivals, including Chicago’s Black Harvest Film Festival and the Hollywood Black Film Festival.  Heart, a short film in which I have the lead role, was accepted to the Staten Island and Martha’s Vineyard Film Festivals. And Hey Diddle Diddle, a feature film in which I had a day player role, was nominated for a Voice Award and premiered at the Hollywood Black Film Festival.

I am currently studying acting with Mary Boyer at MTB Studios, and have studied with Arthur French at H.B. Studios and The Spirited Actor’s Tracey Moore-Marable, all in New York.

Outside of acting, my passions are my fabulous family and friends, supporting the Obama agenda, and the Pittsburgh Steelers (my parents are from the ‘Burgh).
