Team Captain Escape to Margaritaville Sleep Out: Stage & Screen

I'm Sleeping Out

I have accepted Covenant House’s challenge to spend a night sleeping on the street so homeless kids don’t have to.

The Sleep Out is not about pretending to be homeless. It’s an act of solidarity with the 4.2 million young people who experience homelessness each year. It’s a decision that we can’t stay indoors while so many kids remain outside.

One night can make a difference.

As part of my Sleep Out, I am raising funds and awareness for Covenant House, a shelter for homeless and trafficked youth. Covenant House offers these young people so much more than a safe place to sleep - they welcome each kid with absolute respect and unconditional love, and their continuum of care provides essential services to help kids transition from homelessness to independence.

About Me

 I started acting when I was a child, but I was truly bitten by the stage bug in high school, when I performed in Peter Pan with Cathy Rigby at Theatre Under The Stars in Houston. One night, as I ran out for a curtain call, I fell onstage and thought I might have ruined the show! But I got up and continued my staging and the audience still clapped. At that moment, I learned that art imitates life, and I wanted to cover myself in THAT.

After high school, I studied musical theatre in Chicago at Roosevelt University's Theatre Conservatory and worked professionally in Chicago for two years before making my way to New York City.  Since then, I have been a working actor / singer — and I can't imagine doing anything else. I learn so much from this business and have found great joy, while discovering beautiful things about myself and others. I pray that God continues to bless my walk in the arts and continues to make dreams come true.
