Today I hold an MFA from UCLA and have completed the William Esper Studio, 2 year Meisner Technique program, and the summer intensive. I have held lead and supporting roles in short films, TV episodics, and several off, off Broadway theater productions. 

At 16 I signed with IMG worldwide and walked the runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris for designers old and new. For the fashion nerds out there, I was a muse of Anne Demeulemeester, walked a catwalk in a medieval prison in Paris flanked by wolves for Alexander McQueen, had Yves Saint Laurent--the actual man--fit me in one of his original 1970’s designs for a retrospective of his work, descended the Spanish Steps in Rome for Valentino, and was given an art history lesson by Karl Lagerfeld during a pre-show Chanel fitting.  That man knows his Rococo from his Early Baroque.  I fell in love with the theatrics of fashion.

 

Realizing the limitations of modeling, I moved on to pursue a degree in art history, studio art, and environmental science at Columbia University. At Columbia, I learned how to build, how to sail across oceans studying uncharismatic sea life, and how to be critical in a good way. This last bit led to the project Our Literal Speed, which has been featured in museums, galleries, and print. If you want to know more about that, definitely ask me.
