Currently based in the mountains of Asheville, NC, I'm a SAG-eligible actor and a proud affiliate of The Actor's Center of Asheville. I'm also a voice actor; my commercial demo can be found here. While acting is my first love, music has always been a major part of my life. I'm also a pianist, cellist and vocalist. I mainly perform in the duo titled 'Brooke & Nick".
I've always hungered for both sides of performance art - as an audience member and as a player. My happy place is connecting with people through the act of storytelling. As Robert McAfee Brown said, "Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas in the world today." I suppose that's why I am drawn to it: I love to examine and share ideas; to churn inspiration & critical thinking through expressive art and storytelling!
After graduating from The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts in 2009, I took some time to work seasonally & travel. In 2012, I reignited my acting career by taking classes at The Actor's Center of Asheville. Soon after joining TACA, I signed with the Artist Resource Agency, booked my first SAG commercial role, and I've been a working actor since. In 2017, I acquired voice over coaching from Chloe Taylor to brush up on my voice. I then recorded a professional demo and landed on several east coast rosters.
While I grew up immersed in music, it wasn't until 2015 that I finally rekindled my passion for it. After an almost 10 year absence, I picked my cello back up, attended several workshops, and sought a teacher. I then started performing as a duo with my partner, Nick, throughout North Carolina. Our music style includes a Folk/Indie/Americana sound. We enjoy playing covers while continuously working on our own originals. We've also collaborated and played with other groups throughout North Carolina. We've performed at listening rooms such as Coyote Music Den & Isis Music Lounge as well as establishments like Smoky Park Supper Club, Battery Park Book Exchange, and 5 Walnut Wine Bar. Nick and I have also been honored to play private events and weddings. You can view our performance calendar HERE
Nick and I are currently piecing material together to produce an EP.
