I’m just your typical socially well-adjusted Michigander, actor, improvisor, comedian, and engineer.  My foray into the performing arts started at a very early age.  I’d studied at the Actor’s Alliance (in Detroit, MI) and the Woodruff Arts Center (in Atlanta, GA); co-hosted Flip Card Video, a children’s black history video series; performed in numerous stage and musical theater productions – and even directed a few – by the time I foolishly turned away from the performing arts in my angsty years.

After an extended hiatus learning and doing ‘sciency engineery’ things I’ve finally gotten my head on straight and I am thrilled to be back on stage, in front of the camera, and a part of the comedy community.  Yes, I drank the kool-aid.  As a company member of the Philly Improv Theater, I co-hosted/wrote/produced Lady Bits a monthly all lady, late night, panel show and performed weekly with Harold house team Masher.

 

In December 2016 I moved to Los Angeles to get busy with this “making it” business.  When I’m not rummaging through the actor food cabinets at Lesly Kahn & Co or eating Cashew Cookie Larabars during break at Groundlings, you’ll find me in a park, looking for cats, looking for macarons or bubble tea, or hosting my podcast Quitters!
