Chicago-based Actor, Writer, and Filmmaker

Thanks for stopping by!


I'm originally from northwestern Wisconsin where I garnered my love of performance and story telling. In high school I got my first film camera and became instantly enamored with the craft. It became difficult to separate my passions, so in 2015 I graduated from Columbia College Chicago where I studied both Acting and Cinema Arts and Sciences. After a lucrative year in Chicago theatre, I signed with Gray Talent Group, and have been working with them and through my own performance endeavors to hone my craft and not only reach audiences, but touch them, too. 


I'm a juggler, a certified Actor/Combatant, an Eagle Scout, a SCUBA diver, and a pun aficionado. Most of all, I'm a storyteller--and a sucker for a good story told well. I believe that art provides an outlet for us to express ourselves and our truths to others. After all, we're all just trying to make sure we're not alone.

See what I'm up to, check out my resume and give a glance to my gallery - I've been very fortunate to work with some fantastic people and this is my chance to showcase them, as well.

Give me a shout, shoot me a message, or get ahold of my wonderful agents - let's make something together. 



I had the distinct pleasure of touring with Lifeline Theatre! We traveled across the nation, bringing Jim Grote's adaptation of Katherine Applegate's Newberry Award winning book to life. Find our updates on various media with #FreewayGorillas



I recently played Billy in Interrobang Theatre Project's Jeff Award Recommended production of Edward Albee's "The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?" directed by James Yost. Check out what Critics had to say about us!
