About Me

A Lifetime of Storytelling


"The purpose of the storyteller is not to tell you what to think, but to give you the questions to think upon." - The Way of Kings 

I have learned, on the short time I have been on this planet, that stories are all we have to teach empathy, compassion, how to laugh and how to love.  I began my work as an actor on a Seattle stage at age 7.  My education as a storyteller continued at the University of Washington School of Dramatic Arts and after college when I traveled the country and lived out of a jeep.  I made it to LA and dove into classes and collaboration.

Current Projects


I am always creating content.  

Past Projects


While living in LA I have written and produced two stage plays - an evening of one acts and an award winning drama.  I have co-founded three different production companies: Girls on Top Productions (all female sketch comedy), Congress Films (a short film collective) and From the Gut Creations (a play & film production house).  With these companies, I have been a writer, an artistic director, an actor, an assistant director, and a producer.  Many of the films have played at festivals and won awards.

I joined the SAG-AFTRA union in 2016 and have had the opportunity to act on such shows as Criminal Minds (CBS), The O.A. (Netflix) and The Young & The Restless (CBS).
