ACTOR | PRODUCER

hello there!

Thanks for visiting my website, you are too kind!

I am a New York gal born and raised, living the dream as an actor and producer in the big city. I'm a big goofball with an even bigger heart, and my mom says I have a touch of sourness that makes me, me. Thanks mom! 

I have a passion for female created work, and ensemble driven comedies. This combo lead me to starring in and producing the award-winning pilot Ghost Girl, a quirky, crafty comedy about a girl who dies, and her BFF (played by me!) who can still see her. Ghost Girl was an Official Selection in NYTVF's Independent Pilot Competition. Watch our trailer here.

You can also see me as a young woman struggling with PTSD in the short film D.N.G.U (New Filmmakers New York, NYC Mental Health Festival), a bachelorette in Pulling Wool, a wacky date in The Long Shot, and in commercials for Michelob Ultra, and the UpDate app.

On stage I have performed Off-Broadway, Off-Off Broadway, and regionally at The New Ohio Theatre, The Barrow Group, The Tank, Saratoga Shakespeare Company, with Ugly Rhino, and with Fresh Ground Pepper. My sketch comedy team Terrorbird, performs monthly at The PIT on their mainstage.

I trained in improv at Reckless Theatre, and I currently study with Seth Barrish & Lee Brock at the Barrow Group, and with Dan Puck at Kimball Studio. I studied acting at Skidmore College with Will Bond, Kate Kelly-Bouchard, and Ann Bogart. I trained at British American Drama Academy with Lynn Farleigh, Eunice Roberts, and Fiona Shaw, and at Shakespeare & Company with Kevin Coleman, Dennis Krausnick, and Andrew Borthwick- Leslie.
