ABOUT ME

The Essentials

BACKGROUND

Born in the Blue Ridge Mountains, I was raised on baseball and good books. Never was able to sit still, so at 5 years old I started training as a dancer. I soon fell in love with storytelling through art, and have since studied at Carnegie Mellon's Pre-College Program for Musical Theater, and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in Television, Radio, & Film. I'm currently training at the Terry Knickerbocker Studio with Terry Knickerbocker.

When I'm not acting, I'm working as a social media consultant for authors & publishing houses, while losing myself in fantasy novels along with my followers (80k+) on TikTok @maggiemaebereading. The account was born in quarantine: think fantasy book nerd with a walk-in closet.

WHAT TYPE CHARACTERS DO YOU PLAY?

~We like to say that we can play anything if given the chance... consider it said.~

In simplest terms: they're blunt, while retaining their class. Think Vanessa Kirby in The Crown, Britt Robertson in The First Time, Hailee Steinfeld in The Edge of Seventeen, Zoey Deutch in Set it Up, Anna Kendrick in Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect, Mila Kunis in Friends with Benefits. The girl who comes of age with angst, an old soul, and an edge. My characters are unapologetic, but their subtlety isn't lost. Their armor shields the Pillsbury Doughboy. If the Pillsbury Doughboy was the only girl on the block playing tackle football.

WHAT DO YOU WANT

To be a part of projects that make an impact. Genuine characters exploring the dreams and desires of the human condition. Twisted, complex, powerful females. I want to make it count.
