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.

  • NYU/Tisch Alum. BFA In Drama with a minor in Producing. PS. 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:​

  • I play smart women, who play with fun language. 

  • I can talk super fast and LOOOVEEE IT. Hey, Aaron Sorkin & Amy Sherman- Palladino, I'm talking to you!

  • 100% ready to play the daughter of Sandra Bullock (or Marissa Tomei, or Mary Lousie Parker) in a movie.

  • Work on projects where I get to: 

    • a. Wear a corset or a gorgeous period costume or be in a different decade.

    • b. Be a witch, a vampire, a superhero, a villain. I mean, ANYTHING supernatural.

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

    • d. Be on every Dick Wolf show ever.

    • e. Work with Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

    • f. all of the above.

  • Current theatre dream roles: Catherine in A View From The Bridge, Nellie in Floyd Collins, and if you couldn't tell already I could play Hodel in Fiddler on the Roof  FOREVER (Tommy Kail if you're reading this, I'm ready for the movie!)
