A Los Angeles native, Carrie grew up on a steady diet of John Hughes Classics. As a result, she at times wakes up in a pink tutu and polka dotted hoody clueless as to where she has been.
… Now seriously —
Bitten at an early age and an athlete for much of her life Carrie traveled to the East Coast to begin a lifelong journey. She attended Emerson College where she studied with Kristin Linklater and performed on each of Emerson’s Stages. Upon graduating with a BFA in Acting she joined Jeff Goldblum’s Playhouse West Repertory Theater. While studying, performing and writing at Playhouse West in productions such as ‘Welcome Home Soldier’ and ‘Love at the Buenaventura’ she also produced an eight month run of Laurence Fishburne’s drama ‘Riff Raff’ at Playhouse West’s Theater Two. She was cast and performed with Playwrights 6 in the very well received ‘Dead Girl’s Diary’ by Amy Heidish and shortly after became a continuing player with Layon Gray Entertainment in ‘Diary of A Catholic School Dropout’ and ‘Soldier’s Don’t Cry’.
Soon following she began booking commercials and small indie films. While working on the executive end at Fox Studios; Carrie was given the opportunity to participate in looping for Betty Thomas on ‘John Tucker Must Die’ and Larry Clark on ‘Wassup Rockers’.
In 2011 she landed three commercials back to back. Happily aligning with her theater roots; she found herself back on stage in 2012 performing with the Los Angeles Playwrights Lab in ‘7 Corpses: Family Penalty’. Katie Letien’s poignant drama eliciting the Capitol Punishment debate.
She has been having a blast exercising her Producing and Directing muscles. She makes a cameo appearance in ‘Hitachisan’ which she proudly produced in 2013. In 2014 she bravely took the plunge and shot her first short film in which all hats have been put to the test. Writer, Producer, Director and Actor.
Thank you! More to come. Stay tuned…
