My Story

I started acting around the age of seven, and haven’t stopped since! I was born and raised in a small town right outside of Boston, Massachusetts, and had the privilege of attending Walnut Hill School for the Arts for my senior year of high school. After graduating, I moved to New York City to attend my dream school, NYU. I’ve spent three wonderful years at the Atlantic Acting School in the Tisch School for the Arts, where I’ve learned about the method of Practical Aesthetics. While at Atlantic, I’ve been able to perform in multiple productions, such as “The Good Person of Setzuan” by Bertolt Brecht, and “Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again” by Alice Birch. I’m also a founding member of Holy Smokes! Theatre Company, where I’m on the Marketing and Development Committee.

As an artist and actor, my main mission to bring important stories to life- specifically, queer and Jewish stories. As a queer Jewish woman, I haven’t seen myself fully represented in film, television or theatre too often. What I would like to do is give those stories an opportunity to be told, whether I am directing, acting or writing.
