What do I do? 

Actress-Writer-Director-Improvisor

As an actor, I can be seen on your television eating pizza in a currently airing DiGiorno commercial. My short film Broke Juke, which I wrote, produced, and acted in, was a selection of the Cannes Shorts Corner. 

I received my BA from Dartmouth College and I recently graduated (with distinction) with my MFA in Screenwriting from DePaul University.

I perform regularly with the Harold team Deep Schwa at iO. 

As a director, I have several projects in post including a short film, a music video and my web series that explores the lows and lowers of being a new mom.
