Television, movies, and theatre had always been an escape from the somewhat dull routine of suburban life that I lived. Growing up, I loved the captivating stories that people got to tell, and getting drawn in to the story, living it, experiencing it, that was when I felt alive. As I grew up, I realized how important many of those stories are and what a life-changing role actors can play by telling them. That is when I decided I wanted to commit my life to acting. I fell in love with the magic of creating those moving stories throughout my high school years, and in my senior year, I solidified my love of film as my medium of choice during a digital media class that I took. After graduation, I was accepted into Missouri State University's BFA Acting Program, where I am currently finishing my final year of undergraduate training.
