Acting

For me, acting is about preparation, listening, embodying a character to bring the larger story to life. Improv comedy was my first love, followed by sketch, theatre, standup, and TV/Film.  I’ve worked extensively in commercials and voiceover.

In 2023, I wrote and performed a full length dark comedy one-person show that premiered to rave reviews in the Hollywood Fringe Festival.  I also created and starred in My BFF, an award-winning short comedy film, which received audience favorite at New Filmmakers Festival in NYC and is rated 95% funny on the Funny or Die website.

My stage work started small: a bumble bee, an icicle, then a munchkin. Later, I went on to play lead roles in acclaimed Off-Off Broadway and Off-Broadway shows. My favorite role was Rosalind in As You Like It in Washington Square Park. TV credits include Law and Order SVU, and Malcolm Lee’s Morningside Prep on Showtime.
