I'm an actress, comedian, director, and former neuroscience researcher.

My special skills include improv, script analysis, helping you find the story in a short co-star audition, pronouncing medical jargon, and brainstorming buttons.

TV credits include S.W.A.T. (CBS), Hollywood (Netflix), Jimmy Kimmel Live! (ABC), and American Crime Story (Fx). I trained in scene study at the Beverly Hills Playhouse, audition technique at Stan Kirsch Studios, and improv at UCB, Second City, iO, and Groundlings. I directed the main company of ComedySportz LA. I currently perform & direct with Story Pirates (Gimlet media; winner of the 2020 iHeartRadio award for "Best Kids & Family Podcast") and I perform on a UCB Harold team.

Let's get you working!
