I was born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island. Every day I drive by the same herd of cows and they make me smile. At the age of 6 I did my first commercial pretending to be a cheetah for The Discovery Channel. In the 4th grade I got the lead in the school play as Mother Jones: the badass lady who helped start unions for miners! I graduated from Sarah Lawrence College where I learned about acting and how to be weird. After living in NY and doing more background work than I care to discuss... and booking an Off-Broadway tour I moved back home! Too broke for the MFA programs I got into-I make lots of art in New England and NYC. I currently teach acting at URI and am proudly represented by WSM Talent. I consider myself a Jane-of-all-trades: I act, direct, write, produce, and teach.
My acting is strongest as the bubbly, always positive friend, the quirky forensic scientist, or that tough love leader of the pack! I am a lovable weirdo who decolonizes a story with my own sense of bubbling joy. I bring a relatable and loving openness even in the darkest of situations, a true collaborator who is willing to let go and experiment.
When I am not using my imagination to tell the truth you can find me holding anti-racist meetings, drinking rose at buck-a-shuck or re-watching the entirety of Sailor Moon.
