I grew up in Baltimore, Maryland. I was homeschooled until high school, which allowed me to work and study acting, dance, and music at an early age. As a teenager I wrote and directed plays, and I even won a state-wide playwrighting competition. After attending NYU, I worked in theater and sketch comedy in New York, and booked my first on-camera jobs. My favorite memories of performing in New York are with Citizen Models, an avant-garde comedy troupe in NYC. For several years we produced 60 minutes of new material each month at the Magnet Theater. Those were some of the best times of my life. During this time I also started consistently booking commercial work, notably a Little Caesar's campaign and a Google Chrome commercial that is in the MoMa!
After moving to LA I continued to build my commercial resume with the talented On-Camera department at KMR. I studied improv at the Groundlings to continue to hone my comedic work. I also re-discovered my passion for writing, and produced a short film, currently in post-production, and am currently working on my first feature with a writing partner. In 2016 I booked a co-star on CBS' "The Great Indoors", and was thrilled to add multi-cam sitcom to my resume, especially after all my years of sketch comedy in New York. In 2016 I began training at the Bramon-Garcia Braun Studio, which I consider my on-going education home. I also became a certified Yoga Teacher, which I have found helps me to focus and listen better in my acting, as well as in my real life. In 2018, I worked on "Maggie", a short romantic comedy written and directed by Time Curcio, which has become a fan favorite at festivals all around the country. Today, I live in Laurel Canyon with my husband, the brilliant actor Andy Ridings, and our English Pit Bull, Danny.
