400th Episode: Law & Order: SVU

Watch Now

ACTRESS. SINGER. ROCKET SCIENTIST. EXECUTIVE.

You trust her, but you're not quite sure... It's those shark eyes. ;)

Holiday heat

2016 was all about developing new work – both plays and musicals – and 2017 has been the same with TV and film coming into the mix! After workshopping Shahid Nadeem's Barri (Acquittal) in March, we premiered Off Broadway in June with Pan Asian Rep! I was also fortunate to be asked to workshop 2050 Fellow Francis Weiss Rabkin's new play with music and had a wonderful two-week experience at New York Theatre Workshop.

On TV, I can be seen on the 400th episode of our NYC staple Law & Order: SVU, directed by the one and only Mariska Hargitay. This summer, I shot a wonderful short film Chandler by Julia Kennelly and another short film In Silence by Ruba Mansouri, participated in a reading of a new pilot, and shot an amazing show on Hulu (to be revealed in a bit, but hopefully premiering in January 2018).

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. 

PRACTICAL 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 THINKER

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.
