I am an actor, writer, director and audio producer based in Philadelphia and London. My work focusses on complex female protagonists, over the age of forty. As a 2019 Sundance Knight Fellow, I am currently developing the feature film Mother Mary with support from the Sundance Institute and The Knight Foundation.
In 2018, I wrote and directed the short film, Signs of Aging, (Official Selection: New Hope Film Festival.) The film challenges the term “anti-aging” and shame-based marketing language. The film was funded in part by a grant from the Greater Pike County Community Foundation and is a fiscally-sponsored project of Fractured Atlas.
As a writer, my short play The Offering won "Best Play" of the Network One-Act Festival in New York and my short screenplay about gun control, Treadmill was read at the inaugural “Conversations in America” series of Women in Arts and Media Coalition in New York. I co-wrote and co-produced the webseries, A Ladies Guide to Making Conversation More Interesting and many audio plays for my radio drama podcast, Geste.
My screen acting credits include: Orange is the New Black (directed by Jodie Foster); THE BLACKLIST (NBC); Blue Bloods (CBS); the multi-award winning short film, Docket 32357. I have also received a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts to bring improv theatre workshops to rural schools.
I work regularly for the BBC as a radio producer and reporter, for programs like Outlook, In the Studio and various documentaries. I was a producer on Newshour and World Update for many years, working at historic Bush House.
