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

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!
