Broadway Debut HAIRSPRAY (2003)

Year Joined AEA 1998
How I Got My Equity Card “I was about to graduate from high school and was accepted into the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. At the time, my mom was a single mother and was stressed about how she was going to pay for my schooling. We prayed about it and a few weeks later, right before payment was due, I auditioned for Theaterworks USA and booked a job as “Portia Pig” in The Three Little Pigs! So, I got my AEA card with that contract and bypassed going to a performing arts school to become a professional actor.”
Broadway Chorus Credits 5
Fun Fact “I am a proud, first-generation Barbudian! Also, I invented the term of endearment, ‘Boobot,’ and have used it for years. If you hear someone say it, chances are they are talking about me or know me very well.”
