ABOUT ME

Ok. 1st impression… how old do you think I am? Most guess somewhere between getting my drivers license or having my first legal drink, but what I want you to know is that (despite my youthful looks), I have many years of life and experience to bring to my work. I have been acting and performing since the age of 7, which puts me just about 23 years in this crazy biz (you do the math)!

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). As a cancer survivor myself, it was an honor to hold a role in a film that hit so close to home. 

 

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.

This 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. 

 

I also serve as the Operations Manager for the National Opera House, a non profit organization working to restore and maintain a historical landmark in my hometown, Pittsburgh. Through the restoration of this home, we are also developing artistic and historical programming for the community. 

 

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…  and thanks to my youthful looks, I still have many more years to do so!
