Previous Podcast and Media Appearances:
I was a child actor, so I have a few small appearances in films including "Hide and Seek" and "Mona Lisa Smile" as well as a slew of Law and Order episodes. Recently I was a co-host of "Lights Out Frights Out" and I am a current co-host of "Silver Scream Queens".
I've been a guest on the Leo B. Gyllenhaal Podcast, Talking Junk and have some fun new appearances in the works!
