I was born and raised in the TriBeCa neighborhood of New York City, a place that's been capitalizing letters mid-word since before the 90's. I decided I wanted to be an actress at age five, which is a great age to be making permanent life decisions.

 

Since then, I've booked roles on "black-ish", "The Detour" and "Orange is the New Black", studied with Maggie Flanigan and Bob Krakower, co-created and starred in my own web series, "Long Distance" (www.longdistancetheseries.com) and created a short film.

 

When I'm not acting, I enjoy going for long walks on the sidewalk, traveling, hanging out with people I like, exercising (I know, I'm one of those people), rewarding myself with clothes I don't need, obsessively reading mystery novels, and using the Oxford comma.

 

If you've gotten this far, thank you. No, really.
