Hello! If you are reading this, then you must be really interested in learning about me; thus, I am truly flattered! Let's see, I am a football and Disney fanatic. I played women's professional tackle football for a few years - it was awesome. There's just no better therapy than taking down a woman twice your size (I played middle linebacker); unfortunately, injuries forced me to retire. However, I'm just so grateful for the amazing experience it was while it lasted.

I am working my butt off right now in pursuit of my true career dreams in entertainment. I'm working on some short films, which I'll be directing this summer/fall for the film fest circuit. I also perform and produce stand-up comedy. I'm currently producing HE Said, SHE Said (battle of the sexes stand-up comedy showdown) on Fridays at Broadway Comedy Club, the super fun monthly all-female stand-up show That's What She Said on Thursdays at 6:30pm at New York Comedy Club, and a brand new open mic called the YOOMYs at Broadway Comedy Club every Wednesday from 4 to 6pm. If you haven't been to one of my shows yet, block one in your calendar!

I practiced and performed years of improv comedy and created the indie improv (long-form) team Wig Baby. So glad I did improv first, then stand-up.

I love having fun with my family and friends. If you like quiet, calm people, you probably hate my guts...which lends the question, "Why are you reading about me? Very interesting...
