I’m a Los Angeles & Atlanta based actress/writer/director/producer/pitbull rescuer/lover of slashes. A California girl born and raised, I attended the University of Southern California (GO TROJANS!!!!) where I graduated Magna Cum Laude (hey, if I can’t brag about it, it’s no fun at all!!!) with a B.S. in Music Industry and minors in Business, Communications, and Theatre.
I’ve always had a great appreciation for the arts and an intense love of the stage. I’m intrigued by the power art has to move people and connect people. As Tyrion says in Game of Thrones “no one can resist a good story.” I believe in the power of storytelling and have always been driven to be part of the process.
Growing up, my eccentric- yet very talented- extended family put on talent shows every summer where we would sing, dance, play instruments, and do full blown productions of plays. In high school I began acting and dancing in school productions and continued to do so while attending USC.
After college, I took that long held love of performing and began pursuing a professional career as an actress. In 2013 I made my small screen debut on the long running soap opera “Days of Our Lives” and the hit Showtime series “Dexter." I’ve filmed national commercials for brands such as Budweiser, Toyota, Gap, Valley View Casino, and many more. As a model, I’ve been featured in everything from FHM Magazine to charity pin up calendars to major commercial print ads to coffee table books and art galleries across the country and abroad.
Shockingly uninspired by playing endless variations of “hot blonde,” “dumb blonde” and “hot dumb blonde” I decided to branch out into writing and producing. I co-wrote my first half hour dark comedy pilot entitled "Tithes" with my writing partner Eric Williford in 2018. Tithes was recently a semi finalist in The Script Lab’s Screenplay Contest and Screencraft’s TV Pilot Contest. Another of our pilots “The Other City” was recently a semi finalist at the highly competitive Austin Film Festival.
In March of 2021 we released our darkly comedic webseries entitled “DisGraced.” So far, it has played at over 40 film festivals, (Incl Holly Shorts, Venice Shorts, and Dances with Films) garnered over 20 award nominations and 10 wins including multiple Best Comedy and Best Actress wins.
We recently completed production on two feature length horror films “Lexi” and “Cold Blows the Wind." Lexi is currently available on VOD!
I’m also a huge animal lover, a proud dog mom to three rescue pitbulls, and part of the Leadership Team for Angel City Pitbulls. I’m also a self proclaimed foodie, which I credit to coming from a long line of fantastic Italian cooks; and an avid lover of traveling.
I love being part of the creative process and am so very grateful for the opportunity to do it.
