HEY HEY!

Some things you should know about me (not ranked, mostly stream of consciousness):

  • My first role on stage was Mama Stink Bug in my second-grade musical Bugz. My second role was the Brussel Sprout who helped the Mighty Trash Avengers Save the Planet Earth (my third-grade musical). Believe it or not, these two niche roles only made me want to act MORE! So there's that. 

  • My favorite time of year is school supply season. Gimme all the notebooks, gel pens, highlighters, post-its, and if you say "label maker" you'll make my day.

  • MY WHY: To Seek and Reveal the Truth so that Others Can Own Their Humanity

  • I'm a full out, no marking Scorpio.

  • Give me an unsweetened black iced tea, and I'll be your best friend.

  • I'm an excellent problem solver, and like to think of myself as a modern Nancy Drew!

  • NYU/Tisch Alum. BFA In Drama with a minor in Producing. Oh! And my Dad wants me to tell you that I graduated with honors.

  • Spent the last two years playing the role of Hodel in the 1st National Tour of Fiddler on the Roof, directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher. 492 shows & 63 cities! Definitely the coolest life experience to date.

  • I'm a teaching artist & acting coach. All ages. Leading with empathy & calling out bravery!

Career Goals:​

  • Make people laugh. Make people cry. Make people maybe laugh and cry simultaneously.

  • Play smart women, often with masked vulnerability, who play with fun language.

  • I have been told I have an affinity to damaged girls. *shrugs*

  • My lifelong dream is to play a witch on tv.

  • Work on projects where I get to: 

    • Live in a different time period/era, wear a gorgeous period costume and/or a corset.

    • Be a witch, a vampire, a superhero, anything supernatural I'LL TAKE IT.

    • Spend my life telling stories and sharing the human experience with the world.
