I was born in Tula, Russia. I was adopted at age 10 by an American couple. I grew up in Washington, D.C. area. I became interested in performing arts when my parents took me to the Shakespeare Theatre to see Shakespeare's Hamlet play at age 12. I fell in love with the way the actors moved and spoke on stage. I didn't understand much because of the language barrier but through the actors movement and vocal variety I understood the story.
In middle school and high school I played the clarinet and sang in the choir. I watched music videos and taught myself to dance.
I graduated from the University of Maryland with B.A. in Russian Studies. After graduating college I started auditioning for many acting projects in the Mid-Atlantic area.
In the Fall 2015, I moved to NYC to study Acting at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts (NYCDA). I graduated in Spring 2017. Recently, I worked on two Off-Off Broadway plays and an indie horror film Wrestlemassacre directed by Brad Twigg.
I live and work in NYC and willing to work local in other parts of the US.
