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

My team and I are in the festival submission process with my short film UberExMy last short film Broke Jukewhich 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
