An actor + director in NYC + LA. 


I'm currently working on some exciting new projects:

In Summer 2019, my directorial debut short film “HATCHED” was selected as Daily Short Pick by Film Shortage; screened at the TCL Chinese Theaters as an official selection of Hollyshorts Film Festival; was chosen as an official selection of the Louisville Festival of Film.

In May 2019, I was selected as one of SHOOT Online’s New Directors to Watch.

In April 2019, I participated in the New York City Women’s Weekend Film Challenge as a director. I directed “Millennial Success Stories: Fe-MALE CEO,” a mockumentary short. It premiered at the MUSEUM OF MOVING IMAGE in New York City on April 18, 2019.

In February 2019, I joined the cast of THE PROBE as the recurring role of Assistant District Attorney Amanda Klein. I'm also in THE POLKA KING (a new film with Jack Black and Jenny Slate) that was released on Netflix in 2018.

I'm executive producing and writing a new animated children's TV show called CAPE KIDS. I also co-created the show and designed all of the original artwork.
