(she/her) I am an actor, director, and dancer with well over a decade of experience in immersive and site-specific theater- including original cast collaborations with Third Rail Projects, Then She Fell (Alice), The Grand Paradise (Aqua Twin Girl), and Ghost Light (Victorian Woman); and Alexander Wright’s, The Great Gatsby Immersive Show (Off- Broadway, Resident Director).

In addition to support from BAX, my own choreographic work has been cultivated through commissions and residencies throughout NYC and abroad. Including Dance Theater Workshop (Fresh Tracks), Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Movement Research, Danspace Project, The Chocolate Factory Theater, and The Bogliasco Study Center in Liguria, Italy. I am also a proud graduate of the Terry Knickerbocker Studio Meisner Acting Conservatory Program.

I am also a certified professional coach that supports other creatives to live their best life and make the work they long to make. A great way to start working with me is to check out my free online monthly PAUSE SESSIONS on Zoom. Intentional Co-Creative Time for artists looking to make time for their creative work and creative explorations amidst the chaos of the daily grind.

When I’m not working you can find me curled up with my cat Lucius or wandering through Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY.
