I’ve always had a passion for storytelling.
Some of my earliest memories involve me telling my dad bedtime stories of my own after he had finished his. I say stories, but I really mean performances. Complete with pillowy props, hand puppets, and funny voices, every night I performed a show for my dad under the pretense it’d helped me fall asleep. In actuality, I usually got even more hyper—giddy off my dad’s laughter and applause.
Soon my bedtime stories became backyard concerts, and backyard concerts became playground productions and so on and so forth.
Eventually, I went on to attend a performing arts high school, where I met other creative people and learned to harness my rambunctious imagination and channel it into acting.
Throughout my education as an actor, I also worked on my other storytelling outlets. I developed a passion for writing early in my life—penning poorly punctuated novels and scripts that served both as catharsis and escapism.
When I wasn’t able to perform in other people’s productions, I made my own—whether that was alone in my bedroom or in front of an audience of my peers. I just loved telling stories. And I’m grateful I went to schools that let me.
By telling stories, we give away pieces of ourselves—jokes, memories, emotions—for others to hold onto long after we've shared them.
Through acting, I feel that I can extend the reach and impact of stories—both characters’ and my own—so much further. They don’t all have to be serious or profound. They could be absolutely ridiculous, but they always mean something, nonetheless.
So, with all of that said, I thought I’d share some of my own stories on this page. If you click on any of the pictures, there’s a story listed below.
I hope you enjoy 😊
