When I moved here from Chicago in 2013, everyone said that I would have no trouble getting a job because I'm so nice and hardworking.
But, what most Midwesterners don't know, is that while those are indeed very important qualities: so is playing hard.
So, having fun is my focus. Most of the time I'm having fun acting. But I also have a lot of fun writing, filming/recording and editing short films, webseries and podcasts. I'm also trying to have more fun producing. This is a tough one for me. I'd much rather pretend to be a goblin on the C train and then write in my journal about how it made me feel.
Recent screen acting work includes: "A Crime to Remember" (IDTV) and "I Love You...But I Lied" (LMN), along with a handful of on-camera and voice over commercials for brands including Schick, Smirnoff and the NFL, as well as many short films.
I have a B.A. in Theatre Arts and Non-Fiction Writing from the University of Iowa. I have studied clowning, comedic improvisation and movement with: The Funny School of Good Acting (Chris Bayes), Movement Theatre Studio (Norman Taylor, Justine Williams), UCB and The Second City. I am proud to be part of the first graduating class at the Annoyance New York City and I continue to improvise with teams around the city. I have also worked extensively one on one with Voice Over coach John McKinney, of Pomann Sound, and in January I finished up a 2 year Acting program with seasoned Acting Coach Anthony Abeson, who once Tweeted: "Are we nuts? Broke AND not having fun?" So now I have rounded out the theme of this biography.
Currently, I serve as Head of Story for the short film series Project:Girl. Stay tuned for my companion podcast, which will be released summer 2018!
Lastly, I never stop talking about my cats. It is my worst quality.
