Introduce yourself:

I grew up in Katonah, New York with two moms, two dogs, and two cats. My childhood was like Noah’s Ark without the boat! My moms’ owned a gift-wear store, where I often worked growing up. I am an actor and playwright, and have been doing plays since I was a kid! In addition to tutoring and theater, I also work in political organizing, and have knocked doors all across the country! In my free time I like to read plays, novels and cooking magazines. I also love reading any cookbook authored by Ina Garten. My ideal weekend would be to eat a bagel, go for a hike, take a nap and see a play. And if there's time, throw in some thrift shopping.


Fun Facts:

  • My thumbs don’t match.
  • I have two moms!
  • My favorite movie is the Birdcage.
