Raised on an orange farm in Central California, I said

goodbye to the chickens to live my dream in


At USC I majored in film and minored in business law

and studied acting, improv, lighting, writing, cello,

French, and German. I interned at agencies and

production companies and spent a semester in 

Cannes, France.


After college, I started creating my own content. 


For the Winning, a web series I wrote, directed, and

starred in, won awards at the 2012 LA Webfest for

best comedy series and ensemble cast. In June of

2013, I finished my first feature film, Ripe, which we shot in my home town of Visalia, California. 


So far in 2014, I've gotten to play the leading lady in a couple indie features (coincidentally, both grad student girlfriends with a penchant for running), am working on a film that will be my directorial debut next year, and have been writing / pitching series to online content providers.


I can also be spotted in videos on youtube channels Nerdesses, MarsRisingFilms, and CorridorDigital.
