I have found my home in Frankfurt, Germany, where it is perfectly fine to be super honest and not that nice. I grew up in Florida, but hope you won’t judge me for that. I moved to Germany for one year, twenty-two years ago. Germany has no chance of getting rid of me. Ever. (I came for the schnitzel and stayed for the human rights.)

I founded and was the artistic director of Theatre Language Studio Frankfurt from 2010 to 2021 where I taught and performed scripted theatre and improvisational comedy to mostly bankers, with hilarious results. (Bankers – funnier than you thought!) I have done comedy festivals all over Europe and directed and performed in FITS Improv Comedy ensemble for over ten years, as well as played on indie improv teams like Rebel Chicken, Dangerous Play and Strangeland improv comedy.

I started performing solo as a standup comedian in 2019. The pandemic taught me that comedy is the most fun thing humans can share (besides pizza). I have had the opportunity to perform in over 20 cities globally, including the iconic Laugh Factory Chicago. Tours have taken me to Paris, Barcelona, Bucharest, Athens, Luxembourg, Berlin, Vienna, Krakow, Zürich, and many more, including the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe where I was longlisted for the 2023 Popcorn Award for New Writing, presented by the BBC Writersroom and Popcorn Group (Involuntary Momslaughter).

I host. I headline. And everything in between. I thrive off connecting with audiences – having a conversation with the audience. (Where I get to do all the talking.) Wink. I do shows all over my beloved Frankfurt with English Comedy Frankfurt. I have taken to stages across Frankfurt and throughout Germany (Berlin, Stuttgart, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Hamburg) as well as in many other European cities. I’m a high energy act – a bit of magnetism and malfunction.


I get to make improvisation comedy with some really great friends. Rebel Chicken Improv is my cherished duo team with my theatre partner and soul sister René Becker. We have been so lucky to train and perform with hundreds of brilliant people in Frankfurt and beyond. I have trained with some of the best teachers in Chicago and all over the world; Second City Chicago (Michael Gellman), Improv Olympic (Jet Eveleth, Lindsay Haley), Keith Johnstone, Remy Bertrand (Imprology UK), Steve Roe (Hoopla UK).


I have been designing and facilitating trainings and workshops for over 20 years. I have worked with diverse cultural and linguistic groups, with specialisations in Teaching English as Foreign Language (TEFL), applied improvisation, and professional theatre training. My work was published in the University of College Cork’s academic journal Scenario in which I outline performative techniques in the foreign language classroom, giving teachers ideas on how to refresh their creative skill set.

I do lots of serious workshops on humour. Germans love it. I have a Master’s Degree in Mass Communications from the University of Leicester (2010) and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre from the University of Central Florida (1998).
