About Me

I'm a playwright, screenwriter and essayist based in Los Angeles. 


My plays include NURSE CADDEN (commissioned by The Vagrancy), A BANSHEE KILLED MY BOYFRIEND (Last Frontier Theatre Conference) and MOD PARTY (KCATCF Region II Ten Minute Play Award, World Premiere: Actor’s Theatre of Louisville).

My screenplay, CAPTURING THE STARS, won a $20,000 grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in 2012 and received an Honorable Mention for the Sloan/Tribeca Grand Jury Prize in 2013.

As an essayist, I've been published by The Los Angeles Times, XO Jane and The Awl. I've also written monologues for the collection “Teen Girl’s Comedic Monologues That Are Actually Funny,” published by Applause Books.


I hold an MFA in Dramatic Writing from Carnegie Mellon University, where I was the recipient of the Steven Bochco Fellowship. I'm an alumna of The British American Drama Academy’s Midsummer in Oxford Program and have studied improv and sketch comedy at The Upright Citizens Brigade.
