Actor Director Teacher
FALL 2019 - SPRING 2020
As if sexism weren't enough, seven female literary geniuses, including Emily Dickinson, Ayn Rand and Zora Neale Hurston, struggle with the stupidity of those around them.This is the premiere theater project for my production company Thirdwing LTD. With this project we are creating a theatre - film hybrid.
CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS
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.
I am directing my husband, the wonderful Jeremy Rishe, in a very personal one man show he wrote over the past two years. Darkly comedic, with live music, the play tells the story of one man's journey through loss and into redemption.
NEW YORK STATE SUMMER SCHOOL OF THE ARTS
I am proud to announce that I will be returning to teach acting for the 2019 session of Theatre at the highly competitive NYSSSA in Upstate New York. Having performed for the school in the past I am so excited to work with these talented high school students from around New York State.
Coming to a theater near you this year! A movie my husband Jeremy Rishe wrote and my best pal Cameron Bossert directed. As an Associate Producer on this project I am so jazzed to see it finished! And so can you - we just added a screening date in NYC:
Tuesday, February 19th,
334 Amsterdam Avenue at 76th Street
New York, NY 10023
FIRST WORLD PROBLEM
One of my favorite episodes from our production company's web series First World PROBLEM. This was actually shot during our real engagement shoot!
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.
Thirdwing LTD, my production company co-owned with Jeremy Rishe and Cameron Bossert, produces film, online content and theatre in NYC.
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.
