I began my acting career while living in Italy in the 90's where I was working as a journalist and voice over artist. After lending my voice to a variety of international projects, I made my big screen debut in 1999 with the feature film "Tutti gli uomini del deficiente."
While I still consider "la mia Milano" my second home, love for my native NY led me back to the States in 2002. Since then I have appeared in numerous short and feature films as well as television and commercials. You may have seen me in the national commercial for Derm Exclusive's Fill & Freeze. I was recently offered the role of Carmella in the feature film "Jay Mancini," the story of a crazy but lovable Italian family--go figure!
My greatest passions are my family, good food and wine, fashion and antiques--and William Shakespeare.
