Actor Director Teacher




What's New...


A few spaces have opened up in my private sessions for actors of all stages as well as for individuals wishing to become more confident and successful in public speaking and interview settings.

FALL 2019 / SPRING 2020

We were a Critics Choice show at The United Solo Festival! Written by my husband, the wonderful Jeremy Rishe, this very personal one man show is darkly comedic, with live music, and tells the story of one man's journey through loss and into redemption.


A Bit About Me...

I am a NYC-based professional actor, director, producer and teacher of acting. I believe in the power and beauty of the theatre to transform individuals and communities, professionals and non-professionals alike. And through my work I have witnessed and helped to usher in such transformation.

I received my MFA in Acting from NYU's Tisch Graduate Acting Program under the incomparable Zelda Fichandler. 

As a Founder and Artistic Director of Kids Creative Collective, a non-profit arts organization which makes theatre in NYC public schools, I make theatre with kids and teens who historically have no access to arts education.

I live in Brooklyn with my husband Jeremy and our two cats, Nishi and Marvin.


Art is personal, originating from dreams, ideas, neuroses; art is shared, harkening back to the humans around the fire; art imbues pleasure and power by enabling people to know reality...Art is a necessity.
