As an actor we have the ability to transport the audience to another space and time, where they can escape to a myriad of emotions, gain insight, be uplifted, informed, or find hope in the most unexpected places. From a very early age, I knew I wanted to be a part of that. For me, this is just the beginning, as I remain focused and eternally grateful for every step of the journey."
