My Full Bio

Before College:

An overachiever before I got to Hollywood, I excelled as a rare blend of athlete, artist and scholar. I was All State in track and captain of the varsity soccer team. The Phil Svitek Heart and Hustle Award was created in my honor and is awarded annually to this day. (Fun fact: One summer I biked an average of 50 miles per day. My record in a single day was 180 miles.)

From age 15, I worked at the Connecticut Hospice, the first hospice in America, for four years. There, in addition for caring for the terminally ill, I filmed and edited the hospice’s 30 year anniversary documentary. The film aired on ABC and was #1 in its time slot.
