Born, raised & educated in Pittsburgh PA, I received my BFA in Musical Theatre and Minor in Dance from Point Park University. After graduation, I moved to New York City where I continued to pursue work on-stage and on-screen.
I have appeared in several feature film and indie productions, best known for being a recurring guest comedian on the improv comedy series 'Impractical Jokers' (truTV, Comedy Central) and for my role as Alisa in ‘The Fault In Our Stars' (Directed by Josh Boone, Fox 2000 Pictures). And as a cancer survivor myself, it was an honor to be a part of this film.
In 2017 I caught the filmmaking bug and began co-writing & producing my web series 'F'd, another effing web series’, for which I received a BEST ACTRESS nomination from the Grove Film Festival. My other self produced work includes; 'BFF the web series' (Executive Producer, Assistant Director, Actor) and the short films 'Waste' (Writer, Director, Actor), 'Choosing Day' (Producer, Actor, Editor) and 'Wedding Season' (Writer, Director, Actor) winning BEST ENSEMBLE and AUDIENCE CHOICE at the JCP Film Festival.
That self-produced journey eventually led to working in production professionally (full production resume available upon request). I am incredibly grateful for all of my experiences, in front of and behind the camera, as they have shaped me into the versatile creative I am today.
At the start of the pandemic I expanded my focus to local activism, working for and consulting with Pittsburgh-based nonprofits. I currently serve as the Director of Operations at the International Free Expression Project (IFEP). At IFEP we work with artists, activists, storytellers and innovators to encourage creative free expression. Our mission is to build a world in which all people can be who they are, say what they want, and be heard. We seek to foster the understanding that when people turn away as others are silenced, they too may be silenced one day. Through our many projects, we lift into view voices that often go unheard.
When I’m not working, you’ll find me catching up with a friend over a cup of coffee (black) or a glass of wine (red). I love connecting with others and collaborating with fellow artists. I believe that being an artist is a gift and I hope to share it with as many people as possible.
