About Me

Standard

I am a failed actress and I’m not afraid to say it. In fact, I think more of us should embrace this truth and just approach it with a sense of humor. Don’t get me wrong, I have had some astounding accomplishments that many actors have never achieved. I joined AEA, SAG and AFTRA. I worked regularly in film, theater, television, and modeling. I even had a billboard in Times Square! I became a playwright with two produced shows, and the Artistic Director of a New York City theater company. But somehow all of this hard work, progress, and thick skin were not enough to “make it” in show business. My sunny disposition soured into cynicism, but ended up evolving into humor.

I was born in Washington DC and grew up in Vienna, Austria. Now I am an official Brooklynite in New York City.

I have since left the acting world to pursue other passions. Now I happily work in the music industry, while also teaching yoga and writing in my free time.

  1. Hi!

    I just browsed interned for “failed actors” since that is something that you dont hear or read in magazines. Stumbled into your blog, loving the stuff!

    Hope you still break a leg in what ever you do! Whether it’s acting, yoga or music:)

  2. Hi! I’m launching an online educational start-up and we need an actress to be the “instructor” throughout the series of videos (the content is dry – mortgages and things like that, but targetting millenials so a fun tone!). Came across your blog when trying to find ppl in the NYC area (I’m based in Jersey — only 20min from Midtown). Are you interested? If yes, or no, would you please email me and let me know? I’m new to this actor hunt and could use some help. Thanks!
