I am an actor, improviser, stand-up comedian, and voice-over actor from Carmel Indiana. I grew up a musical theatre kid and that passion took me all the way to college where I transitioned from stage to screen and received my BFA in performing arts with a focus in film/tv from SCAD. I have training with UCB as well as Groundlings and perform stand-up around LA.
In NYC I was a reader for Marci Phillips at ABC casting for three years and loved every minute of it. There is nothing better than working with other actors to get you the best audition possible. By diving deep into understanding the dialogue and characters, it'll help you feel the most confident and comfortable so you can crush your audition!
I don’t want to bore you with allll the details- so I’ll make this quick:
Savannah College of Art and Design is where I got my BFA in Performing Arts. I studied all different styles of acting ranging from Shakespeare’s sonnets, Aaron Sorkin’s dramas and Tina Fey’s and Judd Apatow’s comedies. I also fell in love with movement and voice classes. I focused heavily on improv and comedy and spent time after classes practicing and performing with the improv team. **Fun fact** my all-female improv team placed second at the National College Improv Tournament.
That led me to NYC – let’s be honest, I was really on the hunt for the “world’s best pizza” but I found a home at UCB. My indie improv team performed all over the city from basements of sticky dive bars to big stages like The PIT.
It turns out I have a knack for using my voice beyond making people lol... I hit the ground running in the voiceover world, booking work with big brands (think beauty, adventure, luxury vehicles, beverage, and network tv) right outta the gate.
Next commercials, film, and tv work came calling so that I didn’t have to solely *exist* on pizza (although it was delicious).
LA is home now, where I continue to improvise, vocalize and put myself out there for camera. I found a new home at Groundlings for improv and I am still stretching my funny bone as a stand-up comedian.
That’s the long and short of it!
