I was born and raised in Atlanta Georgia and graduated from the University of Georgia with a business degree. Shortly after, I visited New York City. I always had this intuitive feeling that theater and the arts were my calling. Once I made that first trip to New York I knew in my gut right then and there that I was where I needed to be. I was gazing up at the buildings and feeling the energy buzzing on those streets and that's when my Mom looked at me and reluctantly asked, "You're not coming back to Georgia are you?". I didn't have a plan or have it all figured out but I just knew in my bones that this odd circus of a city was where I would not only find myself but create who I wanted to become.
