Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to check out what I've been up to and what makes my heart sing.

2020 has been....well... 2020. No other words for it! Happy to report that I've been able to keep the artistic bells ringing despite the uncertainty we're all facing at this time. In January, I played Helena in Tennessee WIlliams' A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur. Working with a group of fierce, captivating females, I felt so inspired from our collective energy and had the MOST fun every day. This summer/fall I worked on two short films. I played the head military witch in COVEN, directed by Anna Maues. I also had the most beautiful experience working on Peeking, directed by Wells Watson, Jr., where I played a mother who recently lost her son. Footage coming soon!

In 2019, lots of amazing things happened- highlights include an episode for Investigation Discovery's new series, Dead Reckoning where I played the lead detective, Chastity Blades. I started freelancing in Commercial/Print with Citizen Talent Management. And earlier in the year, I did a four-week run of a new play called, My Name is Sam, at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre (playing the lead role of Rose), as well as a 12- show run of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, playing Madame de Volanges... and a commercial with Samsung, check out the final product here: https://insights.samsung.com/2019/09/25/samsung-dex-and-citrix-secure-remote-desktops-for-federal-agencies/


*For those who don't know me...

I practiced law in Florida before moving to NYC in January of 2017. My NYC training includes extensive classes with The Barrow Group, Lee Strasberg Institute and T. Schreiber.  In my "free" time (ha!), I'm reading articles about orcas, trying to reduce my environmental footprint and adoring my crazy cat, Winter.
