I've been known to be a bit of a nomad. Born in Wickwar, England - via France, Connecticut, Illinois - I landed in San Francisco, CA. where I was raised to be this hybrid California British Lady. Once I was old enough to leave home I traveled back to London and dove headfirst into the theatre scene. I studied at the Actors Centre and Pineapple Studios in Central London, and worked with the Actors and Writers of London as an actor. I performed with the Comparison Theatre Company’s production of A Midsummer Nights Dream as Hyppolyta, and sang twice as a featured soloist in the Hinde St. Musical Theatre Showcase.
After London I flew over to Honolulu, Hawaii. I spent three years on hiatus enjoying the sun, culture, and theatre. I performed in Diamond Head Theatre’s The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas as the sassy Angel and continued to study voice work with Laurence Paxton and dance with the Hawaii Ballet.
Somehow I found my way back to San Francisco where I attended San Francisco State University. During my two years there I worked on a variety of shows including; Working, Equus, Hay Fever, NINE, Our American Myth, Hamlet, and Chicago.
I graduated from San Francisco State University in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Drama Performance.
My Bucket List, a pilot on spec
An hour comedy about a deadbeat in her 30's who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and given one year to live. We meet her as she, along side her sister, attempt to cross off every item on her extensive bucket list.
“I want to punch him in the face, for him to stand in front of me and for me to literally take my hand and scrunch it into the most rocking fist I can muster and just punch him in the face.”
I moved to New York City in September of 2012 to pursue and figure out whatever this is.
On the way I wrote, produced (along side New Dance Theatre), and starred in a one woman show A Date for the Evening. Which premiered Off-Off Broadway as a part of the Frigid New York Fringe Festival in February of 2014, then on tour to California for the WEST COAST premiere at the San Francisco Fringe Festival in September, 2014. Finally it returned Off-Off Broadway as a part of the Emerging Artists Theatre New Work Series in October, 2014. Capping off the year I performed A Date for the Evening at Mutiny Radio & Cafe in San Francisco, CA. with special guest Rin Tin Tiger and streaming live at MutinyRadio.com as a PODCAST.
NYC rocks and also enabled me to appear in a feature film entitled Good Funk cast by Devin Shacket and directed by Adam Kritzer. Appeared as a Party Goer in Ready, Set, Go! Theatre Companies web series R & J. I also dig the occasional cabaret and sang in The West Ends' cabaret Gender/Bender and produced and sang in my own cabaret titled A Night of Musical Comedy with co-producer Devin Shacket, we also ended up producing one more titled A Musical Playground. Both performed at the Parkside Lounge.
When I'm not writing in random local coffee shops or watching various theater performances, I am most likely doing yoga on a pier, in a studio, or in my own living room, cooking a variety of wholeness yummy foods, having way to much fun at a grocery store, watching various television shows or movies, and attending local music concerts.
On the way I plan on making a difference within my community.
