Actor. Writer. Comedian.
I am an actor, writer, and comedian originally from Stockton, California (aka the dub-nine), who "moved on up" to study theater at Pepperdine University and comedy at UCB LA where I became a performer/writer on house teams. As a Black, biracial woman raised by a single, white mother, I often explore themes of Blackness, biracial-ness, womanhood, and identity in my work. I like to mine the nuance in our different experiences and laugh about it because I think sharing laughter is the greatest gift. When I’m not creating, you can catch me dramatically belting Mariah Carey from the privacy of my car, snapping film photos, and telling all my curly-haired friends which hair products to try.
A little more about me and my work: I have been featured in videos for Refinery29, HITRECORD, Monkeypaw Productions, Issa Rae's Raedio and my comedic short film Drunk Girl Therapist recently did the festival circuit. I am also a mentee in Lena Waithe's Hillman Grad mentorship program and wrote for BYUtv's sketch comedy series Studio C. Most recently, I was a producer's assistant for season 2 of Twenties on BET. I also co-host pop culture podcast This Is a Moment where we discuss our favorite moments in pop culture. I have performed comedy at Austin Texas' Out of Bounds Comedy Festival as well as the Los Angeles Indie Improv Festival.
I'm not only a comedy nerd, but a theater nerd as well and received my BA in Theater with an emphasis in Acting from Pepperdine University. While at Pepperdine, I created and produced the Ukumbi Showcase which featured the theater department's African American performers. A competitive gymnast who trained with Bela Karolyi, the High School Homecoming Queen, and a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Pepperdine, people consider me a multi-faced force of quirky, compelling talent.
