HI. Hello. Welcome!
In August, I performed on Governor's Island in two staged readings. One was a collection of Bara Swain's plays called Big Apple Bytes and the other Susan Goodell's play called NO GROUND BEYOND THIS POINT. Both were well-received.
This August, I presented scene work from Streetcar Named Desire as Blanche Dubois in a directing class taught by Austin Pendleton. It was lovely. We're considering moving forward with a production of the play.
In May, I played Carolyn Bryant in a heartbreaking play about Emmett Till called A Whistle in Mississippi: The Lynching of Emmett Till.
This January I played a knowledge and power hungry doctor in an original work called Two Conceive by Jake Kevrick that opened in the Hudson Guild Theater for their winter theater festival.
Thanks for visiting!

-- A bit about where I'm from:
I grew up on a vineyard in the east hills of Santa Clara Valley in California, before it became the Silicon Valley. Throughout my adolescence, I danced and sang competitively and in festivals, until I found musical theater and jazz choir in high school. It was my escapist saving grace as my father became ill with cancer and passed away shortly thereafter. When I left home for college in Sonoma County, I was determined to leave performance behind me and pick up a wine business major. Despite my best efforts, 2.5 years later, I found myself with a resume 17 productions long and a deep desire for a change of degree. I received scholarships and was awarded for several of my performances and took it as a sign to continue acting. After graduating, I moved back home and worked and performed in community musical theater until I received a call from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. They had accepted me into the Contemporary Masters in Acting course. I promptly left for England and studied classical and contemporary theater intensively there. Finally, I moved to New York City, and have been acting here ever since. It has been a thrilling and extremely fulfilling ride.
