love stories. Big or small, complex or simple, hilarious or heartbreaking or both, past, present, future, mythic or mundane. Stories unite us as a species, and they need to be told in order to survive. I’ve told all kinds of stories, from Greek to Shakespeare to Rebecca Gilman, and in all kinds of places – black boxes, high schools, film sets, Off-Broadway theaters, and even prisons. (Ask me about that sometime - talk about a good story.)


In fact, I love stories so much that I trained for years to learn how to tell them properly, with generosity and joy and attention to detail – I got my BFA at NYU Tisch, and trained at Stella Adler with the likes of James Tripp, Betsy Parrish, Ron Burrus, Alithea Philips, Joan Evans, Tony-winner Mark Rylance, and Andrew Wade of the RSC. I continue to hone my skills with on-camera teacher Heidi Marshall.


In the last few years I've worked on an exciting mix of new and classical stories: from creating roles in world premieres by Pulitzer finalist Rebecca Gilman and Joe Tracz; to putting my own feminist spin on some iconic bucket-list women - Juliet and Hero in the streets of Brooklyn, Katherine the Shrew in a staged reading, and Ophelia on film, to name a few. I am trying on some new hats - namely, that of Producer and Director. I recently directed "Tape" by Stephen Belber, a searing and humane examination of the aftermath of sexual assault, and a world-premiere reading of Rachel Graf Evans' "The Handmaid Rhiannon," a surprisingly contemporary fairy tale of class, gender, and forbidden love. I made my TV debut playing Elissa Wall, a brave former member of the FLDS who survived a forced marriage and brought down her abuser (and the cult that enabled him) in court.

In my spare time, I train at CKO, read voraciously, travel whenever I can afford it, sing at every possible opportunity, and write scripts that may someday find their way to a stage or screen near you. I love full characters and complicated ideas – and if you do too, I want to talk. Connect with me to find out more.
