More About Me

I grew up in a small town in Colorado. There, I fell in love with theatre and had the quintessential theatrical beginning, performing in small parts in Annie and Oklahoma! before starring as Gypsy Rose Lee in Gypsy.

I knew from the moment I set foot on stage that performing was what I was meant to do.

After high school, I moved to NY instead of attending the North Carolina School of the Arts.

I bopped around with musical theatre for a bit before landing on improvisation. First, short-form, then I discovered The Upright Citizens Brigade. I took classes, performed, and eventually, I even taught some musical improvisation.

My first voiceover job was for Jeep radio. I had one line, and I was unsure about my feelings about voice acting. Being on stage or in front of a camera was familiar and safe, but acting with only my voice? What do I do with my body? I stuck with it, and before I knew it, I regularly booked. Now, I am more excited about voiceover than ever before.

Animation blends my improv characters with the skills I've honed with commercial VO. I am excited about what's to come, and I'm happy you're here!

I look forward to working together.

Gorgeous Ladies of Comedy

I started a blog in New York called the Gorgeous Ladies of Comedy. Its purpose was to feature my favorite ladies in comedy. It soon became a website, multiple shows & open mics, and a movement. My first interview was with Abbi & Ilana of Broad City.

The GLOC shows featured huge names like Kristen Schaal, Kristen Johnston, Julie Klausner, Nicole Byer, Sasheer Zamata, Naomi Ekperigin, and more.

I co-created Dance Dance Part Party along with my best pal Marcy. We just wanted to dance without getting hit on... now, there are DDPPs across the globe!

Dream Role

Dream Role allows actors and comedians to play a role they would never be cast in. I co-created and produced many shows in New York and Los Angeles featuring Rachel Bloom, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Artemis Pebdani, Chris Grace, Amy Stiller, Jeff Hiller, Baron Vaughn, Michelle Collins, Lennon Parham, Georgia Hardstark, Sam Richardson, and many other friends.
