Who are you and what’s your deal?

Montgomery, AL is my home. I prefer grits over hash browns and no bread crumbs on my mac-n-cheese please! I am an actor, a teaching artist, and performance art enthusiast. I am a proud alumnus of Alabama State University, where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Communications. I also attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy NYC. I earned my MFA in acting from the University of Louisville.

I love theatre for its process. Being in rehearsal and collaborating with a cast is what I enjoy most! I feel blessed that my work is not work and that it allows me to meet so many passionate people. I love theatre because it’s always changing and challenging. I am so excited to play with the theatre community in Monmouth!

What excites you about this opportunity at TAM?

What excites me the most about this opportunity is being apart of developing such a classic in a unique style. 

Why Classic theatre?

Classical theatre, in my opinion, is the artists’ playground. Telling classic stories provides an opportunity to explore and experiment in order to discover the freshest and most relevant way to tell a story that’s has been told over and over again.


Who is your role model?

I really admire the work of Viola Davis and Elizabeth Moss. I would like to be that good one day.

You can have dinner with any three powerful women in history. Who would you choose and why?

Nina Simone, because she was unapologetically herself and true to all of her convictions, and her art is proof of that. 

Angela Davis, because the Black Panther party got a bad rap. I would want to pick her brain about her work and her amazing afro. 

Harriet Tubman, because she was the strongest and bravest woman in our country’s history!

What’s your super power? 

I’ve been told that it’s my sense of humor.
