Actor | Singer | Songwriter
Hi, I’m Raya (pronounced ray-uh), an actor, singer, and songwriter originally from Columbia, Missouri. I found my love of performing at a young age when my parents took me to a program run by a children’s theater at our local library. At first I was devastated when I found out I wasn’t old enough to audition for the shows, so I enrolled in classes, and a few years later I made my theatrical debut as Chip in Beauty and the Beast. Now, 14 years later, I’ve just graduated from Boston Conservatory at Berklee with my BFA in Musical Theater, and will be moving to New York in the fall!
When I’m not doing something theatre related, you might find me cooking Jewish food, crocheting, or reading a good book.
