People always say if there is ANYTHING you would rather do other than be in show business, do it. For me, I never dreamed of being a vet, or a teacher, or a nurse. I always knew I wanted to be in “the business.” My father has been a comedian for 35 years, so my childhood involved running a muck on different stages big and small and spending time backstage with singers, bands, and crew members. I fell in love with the atmosphere.
I grabbed the chance to be in any community theater, middle school, and high school production. I directed and I choreographed hoping to gain every ounce of knowledge that I could. Then I went to Binghamton University and graduated with a B.A in acting and directing. I began finding my own creativity in school. I put together my first original show called HeartBeats: A Play told through dance, with 20 dancers. (8 of whom were actually dancers, and 12 friends that worked hard and had a lot of heart.)
I continue to work my Tuchus off everyday auditioning for musicals, plays, films, web series anything to further my creativity. I take classes with business professionals always looking for constructive criticism, and I’m writing constantly and I’d say successfully having just put up my first musical. I am always looking to take part of theatrical opportunities in the city in hopes of one day making this insane passion of mine a career.
I strive to allow this 5’8’’, curvy, ethnically ambiiguous, ball of sarcasm and silliness find her way into a business made out of cookie cutters. I want people to know they can be themselves and still do what they love.
