Welcome!

A November to Remember

2016 has been all about developing new work – plays and musicals! I performed in a new play with Rising Circle Theater Collective, This Timewhich was a NY Times' Critic's Pick this May, and was on stage at the Planet Connections Festival with JK Entertainment's concert reading of a new musical drama: Ocean in a Teacup. I just performed in a reading of a new comedy by Joy Behar, and I will close out the year with a couple readings of Emma Goldman-Sherman's thought-provoking drama, Abraham's Daughters. We are lucky to have a fabulous NYC artist community!

On TV, I booked my favorite TV show, Blue Bloods, SJP's new HBO program Divorce, JLo's Shades of Blue, and just got off set of a NYC staple. Last year marked the premiere of People you Know on Here TV (America's only gay network) in which I am a series regular, and you can now see it on Amazon!

If you know only one thing about me, you know I love to learn and push myself. With that in mind, I have been working with some incredible voiceover, vocal and acting coaches and jumping into the world of VO. I finished working on my commercial demo, which is now up for your listening pleasure below!

Booked: THIS TIME

I absolutely love working to share as many stories as possible. Most recently, I worked with the wonderful folks at the Women's Project Theater to help develop a Monet Hurst-Mendoza play, performed in NYT Critic's Pick This Time by Sevan K. Greene, directed by Kareem Fahmy, and will next be seen in a musical reading of Ocean in a Teacup.

ABOUT ME

I am an actress, entrepreneur and computer hack.

A lifetime education enthusiast, I am a graduate of Stanford, MIT, Harvard and the Studio Theatre Acting Conservatory and am currently training at the Upright Citizens Brigade in long-form improv and with Bob Krakower, Ted Sluberski and Sarah Baskin. You can frequently find me in front of Rosetta Stone.

 

I TYPICALLY PLAY...

 

The #1 question people always ask me: why?

Imagination leads to new ideas and simply makes the world a better place. Through my work, I want to create an impact and inspire people. But, yes, I was a rocket scientist. So, challenge me to a game of Scrabble. I dare you. 

The Professional

Determined, ambitious and competitive, she takes on challenges and gets results. She could be your practical ally in the corporate world... or your snarky nemesis.

The Mastermind

Hyper intelligent, she knows that she knows more than you and applies it creatively, whether it is for good... or for evil. Will she join the CIA or become an international jewel thief?

The Mother

Selfless, warm and loving, she protects her children at all costs and is often the den mother in her circle of friends and the caretaker of the family.
