Welcome to my website!

I am an actor, writer, director, and podcaster,

and recent transplant from New York to LA!

I am wholeheartedly passionate about

uplifting the stories of women in

theatre and film.

My recent project, JULIET & ROMEO, which I adapted, produced,

and starred in, was restructured to focus on the

secret expressive lives of women within the patriarchal structure.

My podcast Feminist Popcorn, a celebration

and growing archive of the greatest

films about women,

is available on every major listening platform, and

rated five stars on Apple Podcasts.  

Storytelling is the greatest passion of my life,

and I consider myself extraordinarily

privileged to be able to call it my career.

For more of what I've been up to lately, continue below!
