WARNING: the bio below is in first person.
The girl to the left there is me. Well, not my regular "I'm buying ankle socks at CVS" me (did you know CVS has great socks?) But the me that's like, "Oh hey, I'm casually wearing a cool outfit in perfect lighting trying to make my hands on my waist not look weird " - but you know, you get it.
Originally a classically trained actor with grandiose dreams of one day murdering some Off-Broadway Moliere, I first received a B.A. in Theater from Amherst College. But after studying comedy at UCB and I.O. West, I started creating my own work and never looked back. Always driven to create content that’s both funny and socially relevant, last year I directed, co-wrote and starred in my first short film We Know Where You Live, a comedy thriller about gentrification in LA. It's a FINALIST in the NBCUniversal Short Film Festival, played at five Oscar Qualifying Festivals (Cinequest, LA Shorts, HollyShorts, Urbanworld, St. Louis International), and won BEST ENSEMBLE at the Portland Comedy Film Festival.
Before that my feminist and socio-political sketches were featured many times on Huffington Post, Bustle, Funny or Die's front page, US Magazine, the A.V. Club, The Nerdist, Jill Soloway's Wifey.tv, Laughing Squid, LA Weekly, Entertainment Weekly, Daily Dot, Pop Sugar, Cosmopolitan, the LAist, and more.
On screen, I've appeared in national commercials and Master of None. On stage, I performed and coached sketch comedy for five years at the recently deceased I.O West Theater and wrote for the 2017 CBS Diversity Showcase. My TV Spec Script was a FINALIST (top 1%) at the AUSTIN FILM FESTIVAL. My original pilots have been a Quarterfinalist in WeScreenplay’s TV Contest, Screencraft's Comedy Screenplay Contest and the Creative World Awards. Currently I'm developing my short film into a feature.
Lastly, yes the H is silent. See you at CVS!
