About Me

I'm an actor, singer, composer, musician, song writer and proud Equity member. I play the violin, drums, piano and clarinet. I also enjoy golf, tennis, baseball, and distance running. When I'm not performing, I 'm a senior at LaGuardia High School in NYC, where  I'm in the Drama  Studio and President of the Composition Club. Also, I attend Juilliard Pre-College, studying composition and violin.  I have received American Prize honors for both chamber and orchestra works. And I have had my orchestra works read by the World Youth Orchestra and Grammy-award winning New York Youth Symphony. I was accepted into the Clara Mannes Scholars program at Mannes Prep. And for the past three summers I was accepted into and attended Interlochen Academy's summer programs for composition. I was  composer-in-residence for the Oyster Bay Music Festival on Long Island, NY, where four of my pieces were performed by the amazing award-winning musicians and vocalists participating in the festival. In addition, I was accepted  into and attended Columbia University's online summer intensive program for filmmaking.
