About Me

I was born and raised in rural Ohio, and now I work as an actor in Los Angeles. 

I studied Theatre and Cinema at Denison University in Granville, Ohio, and came out with a double major, and I graduated with the David Rounds Theatre Prize for most promising Theatre student. I was also a member of Burpee's Seedy Theatrical Co. (The oldest collegiate improv team in the country). 

I've also studied at Second City in Chicago and The Groundlings here in LA. 

In 2012, I was one of only five people selected to studied at Yale University's Acting in Film Summer Session.

I'm most at home on a film set, but I've worked in theatre as well. In 2015, I was nominated for Best Actor in the Strawberry One-Act Festival in New York. I've worked in Dean Productions Theatre company, and Desert Rose Playhouse.
