How did you get into acting?
I was a big theater and performing arts kid in middle school and highschool so it was always in my heart. I started out being in music videos for a few years, learning how to play to the camera. Then I booked a few commercials and now I’m working on a short film!

What has been the most fun part of acting and modeling?
I really enjoy the story telling aspects of acting and modeling. You get to embrace the life of someone else for those moments and be true to the person. I also love watching/looking at the finished product!

What keeps you afloat in a challenging industry?
My passion for films and story telling. If I’m ever feeling like giving up, I have to remind myself why this is what I want to do with my life. Usually by watching a movie. I also write affirmations and morning pages now which helps to keep me creatively balanced.

Do you have a specific workout regiment or fav workout to get you in the right zone?
I do! I rock climb at a gym in Hollywood. It’s my most fun hobby and workout. I also enjoy boxing and want to start Muay Thai!

What's your favorite healthy snack?
Pickles! I could literally eat an entire jar of pickles.. may or may not have done that recently ;)
