I was born and raised in Pendleton, IN right outside of Indianapolis. I graduated from Pendleton Heights High School in 2016. My parents actually knew that I was destined for the stage before I did when I performed a solo act on an empty stage for absolutely no audience at the Indianapolis Children's Museum at the age of 3. I started out performing in musicals and plays at my local high school and joined the show choir. I then made the move to Ohio after high school graduation to attend Kent State University in pursuit of a BFA in Musical Theatre, where I am currently studying to graduate in May of 2020.
I have performed in various shows at Kent State including Children of Eden, Hair, and The Mystery of Edwin Drood. I spent my last summer at Porthouse Theatre as a member of their Young Professional Company and served as a Male Swing for Man of La Mancha and The Music Man. I also have worked at other summer theatre companies in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan.
In my free time, I enjoy visiting my Hoosier family, drinking a nice glass of sweet tea while watching New Girl, driving with the windows down while music blasts, and playing board games.
The wizard of oz
My next project is playing The Lion in the Wizard of Oz at Muncie Civic Theatre! This will be my first live, full-scale musical since the COVID-19 pandemic. The production will also be outside at the Canan Commons and runs June 17th-20th.
