ABOUT

AM3A3858.jpeg

Funny. That’s one word most would commonly use to describe me along with genuine, kind, thoughtful, inspiring, and humble. My passion is comedy and when I’m not in class, at work, or conducting philanthropic activities (as I typically do) you will most likely find me writing down some nonsensical ideas in my notes app that I will later turn into a sketch.

I am currently a fourth year American Literature and Cultures student at UCLA, minoring in Film, and having participated in a number of UCLA’s creative projects. I’ve had my own comedic podcast on UCLA Radio for the past two years and have also been a member of UCLA’s Shenanigans sketch comedy club since I was a freshman. Currently, I am a member of “Company”, the comedy troupe that hosts UCLA’s most prestigious and oldest tradition Spring Sing National Showcase, performing sketches for over 10,000 people.

As I am finishing up my time at UCLA, trying to utilize every creative opportunity possible, I have pursued some new projects. I just wrapped a UCLA Film and Television production, having acted for the project and am now preparing for Spring Sing 2022.

Even though graduation is fast approaching I feel only excitement for what the future holds. My goal in life is simply to make people laugh and with my dedication, tenacity, and comedic timing, I think that goal will be achieved.

RECENTLY...

I have recently wrapped a UCLA Film and Television project that was an adaption of Chekov’s The Seagull. The film was created and directed by UCLA senior Theater, Film, and Television student Anthony Crehan. In the film I played the distressed and depressed character of Masha. An incredible experience and an amazing production, The Seagull is set to air in late January.

“The Riff” is a comedic podcast streamed through UCLA Radio where we discuss all things comedy. The show features guests from UCLA’s comedy club Shenanigans who talk about their comedic journey, passions, and aspirations. When we aren’t talking about comedy we are trying our best to perform it, throwing in some one-liners here and there, ya know, just riffin.
