I’ve always been one to have a zest for life. I strive to continuously live a life full of passion while staying as optimistic as I can through any experience that life has to offer, no matter how difficult it can sometimes get. I believe every experience provides an opportunity to learn and grow; that’s something that is truly valuable when it comes to this journey of life.
On the path of maintaining a happy and passionate life, I’ve discovered that acting is a large part of that for me. Initially, I was studying to become a therapist; after switching majors, I’ve kept up with psychology as a hobby, but I’ve also learned that understanding the mind very much helps with understanding a character. There is a strong connection between psychology and acting as they both involve empathy and understanding why a person is the way they are. We are each simply a product of our environment and upbringing as well as how we navigate our experiences through life. I’ve always learned most life lessons through stories, mainly from watching tv shows and movies. These stories also gave me the opportunity to be more open-minded by learning why a person is the way they are without the initial judgement of what society would deem as appropriate. This led me to realize what I admire most about acting: it is the learning opportunity it gives to the audience (and even to the actor). It is the ability to shift people’s views and to challenge their initial thoughts. It is the opportunity to be able to understand people better and to be more open-minded, especially towards those who are different from us. Ultimately, it creates more compassion and understanding, something that we will always need in this world.
During my down time, I love to cook, lounge, watch tv shows, play video games (self-built PC, Nintendo, and PS4), get crafty, read, and spend time with my Shiba Inu, Yoshi.
I graduated from Southern Illinois University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Theater and have taken a few programs in New York City as well as Chicago. I’m Chicago-born with a childhood there, lived in the ‘burbs a bit, and now I currently reside in Los Angeles!
