About Kelly

I am a comedian, screenwriter, and actor based in Los Angeles. My main focus has been writing and standup the last few years, but I do hope to step back into acting again soon. Ideally in some of the roles I've written in my projects.
My projects include a feature length female led comedy, two sitcom pilots, a blog about dating in Los Angeles that I'm developing into a web series, humor pieces on different platforms, including Medium, that I am also developing into a sketch series, and most recently I finished the first draft of my first novel, which is a travel/romance/comedy story loosely based on a four month trip I took to Europe and South Africa in 2018..
I look forward to the opportunities to be found and the connections to be made here on Stage 32!

Unique traits: Very athletic and would love to play an active role; be in a sports movie, learn stunts, fighting, up for anything!
