I am a Canadian-American actor and filmmaker and have recently relocated from New York to Vancouver. I have a Drama degree from the University of Toronto and I studied contemporary dance and dance theatre at Lancaster University in England.

Before returning from the South Pacific in 2012, I spent two years in the Peace Corps in Vanuatu followed by a three-year stint in New Zealand, where I improvised with Auckland Playback Theatre and performed with Clown Doctors New Zealand. Favorite shows abroad include the Wet Hot Beauties’ aquatic Fringe hit Sirens, and playing the title role in A.R. Gurney’s Sylvia at the Pumphouse Theatre.

When in New York, I can be found improvising at The PIT, performing off-off Broadway with Articulate Theatre Company and onscreen in offbeat romantic comedies. I am an active program producer for New York Women in Film & Television and a member of SAG-AFTRA and Actors Equity Association.

Now in Vancouver, you can find me find me onstage with the Royal Canadian Theatre Company. If I ever write a one-woman show, I am going to call it "Nothing A Little Vitamin D Can't Fix". Or "Better Late".
