I was born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, and when I was 9 began my acting 'career' with a local community theatre. North Carolina was a hub for film and television production at the time, so my friends and I would occasionally drive down to Wilmington to see what was filming that day, maybe end up in a music video, or enlisted as a stand-in or extra.
I earned a Bachelor's of Fine Arts (BFA) in Theatre from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, where I focused on voice and dialect studies. I also have most of a Master's in Public Health (MPH) from Indiana University. In all, I've performed in over 100 stage, film, commercial, video/PC games, and narration projects, and now dedicate most of my working time to voiceover.
In 2022 - 2023, I hosted and co-produced nearly-daily news podcasts reporting on the war in Ukraine for primarily-Western audiences. I got to meet with and interview combat medics, landmine removal experts, a local official who had been in Russian custody, soldiers, military and sociopolitical experts, and the former President of Estonia. I also had the incredible opportunity to go to Ukraine in late summer 2023, spending three weeks in Lviv, Kyiv, and Zaporizhzhia.
Outside of my professional life, I am an eager (if incredibly amateur) knitter, sewist, illustrator, and designer. I love learning about history, architecture/design, public health, critters (especially opossums, which I adore), and language. I have two awesome kids and five mostly-lovely cats.
