Karisa Bruin

director | writer |

actor | improvisor

As an actor, I can be seen on your television flying with a new baby in a currently airing Southwest spot or geeking out at Kate Hudson in a commercial for Fabletics.

UberEx, which I wrote and directed, premiered at Dances With Films in June.

My last short film Broke Juke, which I wrote, produced, and acted in, was a selection of several festivals around the world and can now be seen on Amazon Prime.

I created a web series, Why Does Mommy Cry? inspired by being a new mom.

I have a BA from Dartmouth College and an MFA in Screenwriting from DePaul University.

I perform regularly with my improv team Deep Schwa in Los Angeles
