Hi! I'm Julia. Get to know me!
I'm from the small yet mighty (like me!) state of Maryland and grew up watching classic movie musicals. My introduction to the stage was at age 6 after seeing a cover of the country song "Let Er’ Rip" on American Idol Juniors. I sang this song in a local variety show that year and I went ALL out in pink cowgirl boots, cowgirl hat, sparkly pink shirt and a big pink buckle belt. Click here for video proof!
I was soon taking voice lessons and getting myself into every local/school/community theatre production I possibly could. After trying other things and even earning a 2nd degree black belt in karate after 10 years, nothing topped my pull towards the performing arts. I knew I had to be a part of this magical community.
I ended up attending Rider University in New Jersey which allowed me to easily travel to and fall in love with my future home, New York City. In May 2020 I will graduate with my B.F.A. in Musical Theatre. I am so excited to move to NYC and see what new adventures, dreams and opportunities are ahead.
Besides theatre, I have a fierce love for old bay seasoning, MD crabs, cold brew coffee, all things The Bachelor, reality television in general and the Food/HGTV network.
