In the past year, I’ve played a nurse who delivered a baby and talked down an erratic gunman while being held hostage in House of Horrors: Kidnapped; a wine-chugging daughter of a hospice patient in I’m Your Server; an astronomy student in a commercial for The Great Courses; and a sassy girlfriend of a man with strong opinions on dishwasher-loading techniques in a commercial for Nexium. I’m currently studying acting with Cheryl Felicia Rhoads, Stephen Mitchell and at Gray Studios LA.
I studied theater at American University where I pursued a double major in international relations and European area studies, and performed in theater productions including the roles of Shy in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and Miss Willie in The Curious Savage, to name a few. I then traded plays for the real-life theater of Washington, where I worked in Congress, the White House, the Pentagon, and other federal agencies as an intelligence analyst and later as a program manager.
As much as the real-life drama is absorbing, I missed creating pretend characters and situations. I performed in a few productions with a small theater troupe and also started to work as onscreen talent. I am currently shooting a one-woman short film that will be released on Amazon.
When I’m not working, I am taking flying lessons, horseback riding, or planning my next trip-I can’t decide between Easter Island or the Galapagos. Whether at home or away, I am always looking for my next adventure.
