It’s about a stressed college student that goes down a dark path. I’m also working on a Public Service Announcement (PSA) Series. It has to deal with community issues that will translate into a Short Film.

I went to school for Art and Design. At one point I loved the idea of working for a Magazine Company. Designing layouts and/ or as a Photographer.

By the end of the Summer I’ll be finishing up several projects including the PSA Series and the film. I’m currently working on using all the new work and experience to sign up with an Agent. Also by this time next year I’m working on being in Atlanta, Georgia to be closer to the large scale film industry there.
NY Glam: What is your advice for aspiring actors?
Rejection is going to happen, often. Accept this now and it will be easier when it comes. Then learn from it and keep going. But don’t forget to celebrate the wins.
