A little bit about me?
Although I grew up in Seattle, 240_18150425782_450_nat the age of 16 my parents moved with me to Madrid, Spain. That was quite an adventure as a teenager! At first, I thought it’d be really cool, then I found that learning a new language and not fitting in would be a challenge. In the end, however, it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
I loved living abroad so much that after I graduated from college (back in Seattle at Seattle Pacific University), I decided to move to Prague, Czech Republic, where I taught English for over a year, as well as, acted and directed for some international theatres there. (It’s also where I met my husband!)

Other interesting things?

  • I weld! I learned to weld in college when I became the Master Carpenter for the Theatre Department.
  • Yes, I have played, Annie in “Annie.” And, no, I will not sing “Tomorrow” for you.
  • I once stuck 39 pencils in my hair.
  • OH! …And I LOVE SHAKESPEARE!!! (Did I say that already?) I am currently half-way through reading the Complete Works and aim to be finished by the time The Reel Deal is filmed!

As for acting(the highlights):
One of my favorite, most meaningful, jobs I ever had was acting for the Taproot Theatre Road Company, performing bullying and harassment prevention plays for tens of thousands of students all over the Northwest.

My first co-star role was on Leverage on TNT(filmed in Portland) where I played an Agent with the Department of Fish and Wildlife… and I got to catch the bad-guy!

The first film I was ever in was a part of the Seattle 48 Hour Film Project, which is A LOT like The Reel Deal. It was called, “The Belgian Pretzel”, and won 5 awards that year, including Best Film and Best Acting.

Whelp, that’s it for now. Thanks for joining me in this ride!


Hello! I'm from Seattle, born and raised! (Well, except for a couple years when I lived in Madrid, Spain and that year and a half I lived in Prague, Czech Republic.) I started acting when 10 years old and played Phebe in Shakespeare's As You Like It, and I fell in love! I've been acting, directing, and producing ever since. I graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a major in Theatre and a minor in Spanish. In Seattle, I've worked at Seattle Shakespeare Company's Wooden O, Taproot Theatre, Theatre 9/12, quiet, Local Jewell Productions, Abundant Productions and more. I booked my first co-star on Leverage in Portland. The Seattle theatre and film community laid a foundation for my career and I will forever be indebted to them. What I love most about theatre and film-making is bringing people together to tell a story. I believe the stories we live, the stories we tell each other and ourselves are so important. They have the power to change us, inspire us, and move us. I have found what I love to do and I will do it for the rest of my life! Check out my blog at for more of my story.
