I am a rare unicorn: a born and bred Manhattanite! I began acting at 9-years-old and have been doing so ever since. I’m also fluent in French and translate between English and French. I’ve studied here in New York, at Pomona College in Claremont, CA and internationally at the Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London.
I play characters who stand out, chasing after fame, fortune or infamy. I do a mix of modern and classical theater, film, TV, and voiceover. Thanks for stopping by!
I just wrapped shooting a new web series, B-Sides! I play a student trying to diffuse a racially charged fight. Will give you more details as I know them!
Let’s Kill Grandpa this Christmas, a dark comedy in which I play a gender fluid administrative assistant, written and directed by Brian Gianci, had its NYC premiere at Anthology Film Archives‘ New Filmmakers series in December 2017. Stay tuned for more news.

I grew up in New York City surrounded by theater. Early on, I saw the original Broadway production of Into the Woods and watched, spellbound, as my childhood heroine of Cinderella took life right before my eyes.
It came as no surprise when I announced to my parents that I was going to be an actress. I was quickly enrolled in classes at HB Studio. I was delighted to go each Saturday morning to the basement studio and improvise for two hours, pretending I was any number of people. Soon, I made my Off-Off-Broadway debut in St. George and the Dragon at Christmastide at the HB Playwrights Foundation, playing a gnome. A few months later, I was working off-Broadway, playing Herman Goering’s daughter in Romulus Linney’s 2: Goering at Nuremberg.
After graduating from Pomona College and studying internationally, at the École Internationale Jacques Lecoq in Paris and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, I’m back in New York City.
Already working regularly in the New York theater scene, I’m excited to work regionally and then head to the Great White Way, stopping along the way to pursue some film and TV work, all the time playing women obsessed with fame and fortune – either escaping or pursuing it. This includes rags to riches, riches to rags and everything in between. My dream roles include The Little Dog Laughed’s Ellen, Gone with the Wind’s Scarlett O’Hara, Maggie the Cat, Antigone, Juliet and, of course, my beloved Cinderella.
Thanks for joining me on this journey!
