Hi, Everyone! Thank you so much for viewing my gofund me. As you all know, going to grad school is a financial undertaking, not taken lightly. To wade into the deep end one must have confidence, drive, goals, and willingness to see it through. Theatre and acting in general is a wildly growing and diversifying industry. It's a rare, life-changing opportunity to train with professional artists to go out and create in so many varied media. That's what this opportunity is for me. A real, solid chance to start a life-long career in acting.

I am an actor living and working in Raleigh, but with bigger dreams and goals. To that end, I have been accepted into the Shakespeare Theater Company's amazing one year MFA programs through George Washington University in DC. I am overwhelmed and excited for this incredible opportunity.

I have some support through loans for the school itself, other scholarships and such. But living in DC is expensive, and during this program I will not have time to work. The program is intense and fits three years of study and technique into one year with world class teachers. 

With your support I will pay for all the living basics. Food, Shelter, transportation, and other yearly expenses surrounding my study. In exchange I will be journaling my experience and be using Patreon to provide and inside look at this exclusive program. I will also be making advice videos, creating art, and with you backing I can use my free time to give back and participate in volunteer opportunities through The Shakespeare Theater Company and in DC. I hope through me bettering myself, I can create opportunities for others.

I will begin schooling in August and will be solely focused on school then. It is imperative for support soon after because most of my savings will be exhausted soon after.

Thank you so much for your support and your faith in me as I start this journey. I know these days are rough for everyone, but I thought, if not now, then really never. And I haven't gotten here without help from my community, friends and family, so I continue to be grateful for the help and this chance. Thank you so much!
