Welcome! I am...

  • A New York City based actress, writer, teaching artist, and curious observer.


  • Originally from Cleveland, Ohio


  • Particularly passionate about new works, and storytelling as a vehicle

      for inspiring empathy and connection


  • Favorite credits and projects include Halina/Manke/Dorothee/etc. + Dance Captain in Indecent, music directed by Lika Gutkin, the World Premiere of Sarah Ruhl's Three Sisters at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, Kristen in Dike (New York Theatre Workshop and Urbanite Theatre), B1tc0n (Workshop, directed by Hamilton's Hannah Ryan), Kyra in David O'Hare's Skylight, Cinderella in Into the Woods, and Lucy Brown in the Off-Broadway Drama Desk nominated The Threepenny Opera.

  • Currently seeking more on-camera work

  • Sometimes I write things. Like a children's book which I'm developing into a seven book series.


  • I have an unwavering passion for spicy foods, dogs of all kinds, and killer iced coffee

  • I once toured with the circus

  • I especially love pieces that require dialects and/or period hair
