"Performing in the present, educating for the future."

I decided to take a leap of faith and audition for the singing competition show, “The Voice”. I was lucky to have made Christina Aquilera’s team on the show. It all began with MTYP. I’m extremely thankful to have been a part of MTYP personally and professionally. Not only did I get my feet wet performing for the first time but I also made life-long friends I still talk to today.

Music Theatre for Young People was a place where I not only was able to cultivate my talents and use as a functional training ground under working professionals such as Mike Roark, Karen Robu, Kyle Vespestad and Nick Saverine, but I made some of the best friends I have during my years involved.

When I caught the theatre bug in high school, I needed a place to explore my passion — this place was MTYP. Through working on various productions, I leaned about the joys of acting and music, developed life-long friendships, and learned how collaboratiion works in a professional setting. From an acting viewpoint, MTYP is where I learned the basics of my craft that I still use everyday.
