I’m a Los Angeles-based comedy writer and playwright.
Previously, I worked in television and awards publicity for major streaming services and networks including Amazon, Netflix, National Geographic, and Adult Swim.
After graduating from University of Iowa’s Playwrights Workshop (MFA), I went on to study improv comedy at iO West and Second City, as well as an improvisational theater with Aretha Sills at Sills/Spolin Theater Works. I was also the recipient of the Diversity Scholarship at The Improv Space where I explored my mad skills in sketch comedy and improv. I have performed at Green Gravel Comedy Festival, Laugh Riot Grrrl Festival, and written sketch comedy for LA Scripted Comedy Festival, LA’s topical news sketch show Top Story! Weekly (ACME Comedy Theater), and written for team Thunderdog (Pack Theater), and currently write for house sketch team Gutter at the Pack Theater. My work has been featured on ComedyCake, Funny or Die, and WhoHaHa.
My plays include Koreans Eat Dog (2013 Richard Maibum Playwriting Award), Family Dinner (2015 KCACTF’s Paul Stephen Lim Playwriting Award) and Grace and Janette Like White Guys (2020 Finalist, Seven Devil’s Playwright Conference). Check out my page on New Play Exchange.
I co-host the very interesting playwriting podcast Beckett’s Babies with my pal Sam Collier.
I am California native who grew up in Los Angeles and lived by the beaches of Santa Barbara (a true So-Cal girl). I studied film at UC Santa Barbara, where I also aced in eating tons of burritos. I currently live in West LA with my cat and my very professional copywriter husband, Nik Frank-Lehrer.
