About Melanie

Melanie is a native Texan with Russian and Polish heritage. Her favorite film is American Beauty because she loves exploring fantasy, obsession, and darkness in her artistry. This exploration led her to: working on shows such as Top Girls (Angie), How I Learned to Drive (L'il Bit), and writing a play about a teenage photographer who manipulates her past by manipulating darkroom photos. She has been trained in Meisner technique, "The Style" (from LA's The Actor's Gang), Fitzmaurice, and Rasa boxes. She has had workshops with Christopher Durang (mock audition), Bob Krakower (Acting for T.V./Film) and the New York Neo-Futurists (Non-Illusory Performance). Melanie found Josh Harmon's Bad Jews to be her ideal directing debut in 2014. In her free time, she loves writing/performing stand-up comedy in the Austin area. She is inspired to follow in the footsteps of Lena Dunham and Jill Soloway to become a creative female pioneer. She is currently in rehearsal for Caryl Churchill's Love and Information, which will be part of Austin's FronteraFest 2016.
