Hello, I'm Emily.
I'm an actor, comedian and award-winning filmmaker
located in Los Angeles, California.
Originally from Evansville, Indiana, I moved to Los Angeles, California in 2013. Since being in Los Angeles, I've worked in TV, feature films, short films, theatre, webseries, sketches and improv. I also have done voice work as a vocalist in an episode of the television show, Eagleheart. Along with performing in other artist's projects, I decided in 2015 to create my first two internet shorts, Little Talks and Untitled. After these endeavors, I created a sketch group called Mixed Nuts and joined another group called The Madcap Underground. In 2016, I started performing as a stand up comedian and began making my way through the LA comedy club scene.
In 2018, I performed at the 4th Annual Laugh Riot Grrrl Comedy Festival , produced and starred in CLOSER: A Scene Reimagined , had a leading role in Prey Film's feature film Vengeance Girl, starred in the short film, Farah and wrote, produced, directed and starred in my first, real short film entitled Happenstance.
Nearing the end of 2019, I was thrilled to have performed in many new comedy clubs, including my first spot at the famous Hollywood Improv! Most of the year was post production for Happenstance and preparing the film to begin its journey in the festival circuit.
My 2020 began with starring in an episode of Oxygen Network's TV show, Accident, Suicide or Murder and I'm very excited to say that the episode will be airing in May! I've also been able to watch Happenstance make a strong start in film festivals and I'm proud to say that it has currently been awarded an international award for "Best First-Time Filmmaker" from the Alternative Film Festival, an award for "Best Romance" from the Shore to Shore Film Festival and has also earned an international nomination for Best Short Film-Drama from the Florence Film Awards! Along with these achievements, I've started to seek out more voiceover opportunities! In September of 2020, you will be able to hear me performing as Sadie in The College Tapes (The next chapter in The Bright Sessions universe) from Atypical Artists!
My training includes studying theatre and marketing at University of Southern Indiana and I continued training in Los Angeles with on-camera classes, improv and Meisner acting classes. To better hone my craft, I recently put in serious time and work at The Archibald Studio and while attending, participated in a voiceover workshop as well. Aside from my barista day job, I love being a production assistant for Hey Qween TV and I have a lot of fun being a Karaoke DJ! I'm hungry for more projects and love to embark on new artistic adventures. Some of my other hobbies include: writing, creating latte art and singing covers with my boyfriend in our band, Devily.
