Bio

Originally from College Point, Queens, I grew up by way of Palm Harbor, Florida. After many years of NYC hustle, I recently relocated to Myrtle Beach, SC, happy to revisit to my sunshine-and-flip-flops upbringing and continue to find new ways to perform while ditching the world's biggest downer, NYC public transit. (Or NYC rent. I'm not picky.)

 

Most recently of note, I finished out my first contract on the high seas as the lead female singer aboard Holland America Line's ms Eurodam with RWS Entertainment Group. I have previously performed in Equity national tours, top regional houses (PCLO, Weston Playhouse), and on many well-known New York stages, including New World Stages, The Public Theatre, The Signature Center (NYMF), and Joe’s Pub. I've also booked a handful of commercials, voiceovers, and industrial & print work in NYC. In addition, I spent nearly 2 years as a house team improviser at the Magnet Theater, making up musicals every Tuesday night with my beloved team, Zoom!

 

I studied at New York University and graduated with honors from Tisch School of the Arts. My NYU days were spent studying musical theater at CAP21 Conservatory, on-camera acting at Stonestreet Studios, and frozen yogurt self-service at everywhere imaginable. I also pursued a neverending fake master's degree from NYC's beloved comedy schools, having graduated from the core improv program at The Upright Citizen's Brigade as well as the Musical Improv program at The Magnet Theater. 

 

 

 
​In addition to being a lover of comedy, improv, and sketch, I'm also a dancer, pianist, voice actor, and a lifelong (seriously, I just found some old sightsinging books with exercises dated when I was 9), classically trained singer with a mean legit soprano and high belt. I've also appeared in some student film projects and ridiculous parody music videos you might dig up on YouTube somewhere if you’re exceptionally bored.
 
I spend most of my leisure time weight training, dancing, planning adventures, petting animals,
planning adventures in which I will pet animals,
and trying to be a good person.
