Past roles include being a Scooter Clown in a play called “Freak”, and being well known as my famous role yet, the ever so charming Superintendent in “Drowsy Chaperone” (I was a late bloomer in the acting department, didn't start as early as I should've.)

Jokes aside, Some of my favorite hobbies include cracking jokes, doing impressions of cartoon characters, playing games, singing, and reading a nice book or two every once in a while. I cannot express my gratitude enough towards State Fair Community College for allowing me an incredible opportunity to get an AFA degree in Theatrical Arts!”
