And She Bakes. is an interactive baking experience. A joyful YouTube series; an exuberantly tasty live show. Sweets, treats, and sex advice. Homemade and delivered to your heart and soul. And your computer. And a theatre near you. Yummy.
I hold a B.F.A from NYU Tisch and an M.F.A. from the New School for Drama. I perform live and on the web in my original baking series And She Bakes, seen in various incarnations at the opening of NYC's Yotel, Sticky! at The Bowery Poetry Club, Abrons Arts Center, Fresh Ground Pepper, and The Plus One Solo Show Festival at NYC's Bridge Theatre. I have also performed live and on the web in the off-Broadway unscripted sitcom Naked in a Fishbowl (Cherry Lane, Edinburgh Fringe). I play Celia in the short film Hilde and Celia, directed by Dan Schimpf, and have also been seen on the web series Darr's Dinner Dates. I recently wrapped directing the upcoming web series, Mary Pillard, produced by Safe Circle Productions.I have toured the world as a monologuist, performing in Jerusalem, Miami, Chicago, NYC, and Vancouver, among others. I have performed and trained with NYC companies Witness Relocation, Red Bull Theater, Les Freres Corbusier, la mama e.t.c., New York Neo-Classical Ensemble, and as a member of the T.S. Eliot US/UK Exchange with the Old Vic in London.
