Born during a blackout in New York City, I've always felt that my dramatic entrance into this world coincides with my need to tell stories. My mother was contacted by a reporter from The Post who was doing a story on the blackout. But the next day she called to cancel the interview saying she found a woman who had twins and whose husband worked for Con Edison. My television debut would have to wait--that is, till my appearance on Romper Room.
I graduated from McGill University with a B.A. in English Literature and International Relations, and spent a year abroad at The London School of Economics. After finishing my degree, I moved to Israel and worked at The Jerusalem Post.
I came back to New York in the fall of 2000 to pursue acting and enrolled in the professional program at The Atlantic Theater Acting School. I continue training, most recently with Anne Bogart's SITI Company and The Labyrinth Theatre Company.
