What attracted you to acting and when did you decide that you wanted to become an actor?


Watching my middle sister's plays throughout high school and watching all of the actors fully embody their characters– even after their performance was over– and watching Leonardo DiCaprio or Heath Ledger work their magic on the big screen had heavy influences on me when I began my acting career once I started college. Also, I got injured while playing football and realized I needed to find something new.

I decided that I wanted to fully invest myself into acting during my second semester of college.


Who are your biggest influences?


When we were growing up, my sisters would always play house. Being the youngest sibling out of the three, I always wanted to do what the two older kids were doing, because I looked up to them. Surprisingly, they would let me join, even though I was always assigned the "evil” roles.

What is your main strength as an actor?


When it comes to acting, I am not afraid at all to submerge myself into a character and do whatever it takes to express whatever it is I believe they are feeling. I have always found this somewhat odd, since I am much more shy in person. When I am a character, it is much easier for me to become more vulnerable and express emotions.

How difficult is it to establish yourself in the film industry?


In today's film industry, it seems very difficult to establish yourself. Preparing headshots, updating my reel, and balancing that with getting the necessary training and coaching for my auditions can get stressful from time to time.


What's your dream, your ultimate goal? Do you feel like you're on the path to this goal, or do you feel as if you already achieved that dream?


If I were to actually come to terms with an ultimate goal, I can remember my great grandmother telling me that she wants to see me on the big screen at least once in her lifetime. I constantly remind myself of her telling me that, every time I work on any film project, whether it be a student project, a small-budget project, or a projects given to me through my agency.


What is your message to all your fans?


If there is something in life that you know you want to do but are too afraid to do it, do it! Do not let anyone keep you from setting out on the journey that you have planned for yourself. In the end, everything is up to you!
