While I hold a great fascinating with the performing arts, and I will be the first to say that this is my passion, I also enjoy working as an athletic trainer for my high school especially with my family's extensive involvement in the medical community. I also enjoy writing, especially poetry, and photography for which I have taken some basic college courses in developing film and such.


Originally from Charlotte Hall, Maryland, I have spent the majority of my life in a rural environment where there was not much opertunity for a career in the entertainment industry. While attending St. Mary's Ryken High School I became involeved in choir, theater, and what we called stage guild. Stage guild was a club that allowed us to learn and develop set design, set construction, light design, sound design, stage management, costume design, and make-up design skills. During this time period I went from wanted to go into a civil and chemical engeneering career path to a performance and live show production career. I was later told about Full Sail University by a fellow scouter and here I am now, ready to learn and develop the skills I need to make my passion for live entertainment a lifelong career.
