I would love to help you - as a reader, for rehearsal, self-tapes, auditions, coaching. You just let me know what you need from me!

I'm an American actor (theatre, film and tv), host of The Actor's Resource podcast, and improviser. I'm easy-going, have a kooky sense of humor and consistently work on improving my acting and improv skills.

Feel free to contact me if you'd like to schedule a rehearsal/self-tape in advance. Email:

Thank you! :)

Alya's essence is: Enthusiastic, Idealistic and Wacky. The love-baby of funny Margaret Cho and amiable Anna Faris.

Alya is best cast in roles such as:
• overwhelmed but loving mother
• enthusiastic co-worker without a clue
• woman pushed to the edge and loses control
• off kilter but harmless neighbor
