about me.

As a playwright...

I tell stories about women, primarily but not exclusively queer women, and explore the ways that they both struggle and cope with family, love, sexual assault and abuse, mental health, depression and anxiety, queer identity, and Jewish identity.

I started writing plays as a sophomore in high school when I joined the MCC Theater Youth Company Playwriting Lab, taught by playwright Lucy Thurber. Since then, I have graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ithaca College with a B.A. in Theatre Studies and a minor in Web Programming. Just after graduation, my play You Have To Promise received a developmental workshop over Zoom in the 2020 Pride Plays festival, directed by Jenna Worsham.

As an actor...

I grew up seeing and loving Broadway shows; among my early experiences were A Year with Frog and Toad, Mamma Mia!, and The Drowsy Chaperone; as a result, I spent a lot of time jamming to ABBA in the car and telling the "ice water/vodka" joke far too many times.

I first acted professionally in high school, when I was cast in a developmental reading of Sam Carner's Barnyard Follies, directed by David Alpert. Since then, I've loved any opportunity to combine my identity as a queer Jewish woman with stories and characters, including playing Malka Oz in the world premiere of Sandy Gooen's It Takes A Village and Devorah in Pearl Gluck's award-winning short film Summer.

And more...

I spent my second-to-last semester of college working on a dramaturgical independent study of Steven Levenson's If I Forget; learn more about my work as a dramaturg HERE.

Finally, I am also a stage manager, dresser, and web developer; please contact me for resumes or more information about my work in any of those realms!
