Getting to Know Me

Hi, I’m so happy you stopped by! I’m Rebecca, a bicoastal actor working in TV, film, commercials, and theatre.

I’m a cross between a young Amy Adams and real life Kimmy Schmidt, without the whole trapped in a bunker for years bit. I’ve been known to stop whatever I’m doing to admire rainbows and I like to think of skipping down sidewalks as a professional hobby of mine.

Plucky, wide-eyed, and whimsical, I can be spotted reliving high school in commercials, as a crazy long-haired princess locked in a tower on stage, and an over-achieving perennially perky teacher’s pet on TV.

I’ve studied improv and sketch comedy, spent a summer at the Williamstown Theatre Festival as an acting apprentice, and I attended The American Theatre Wing's SpringboardNYC. I can be seen in various commercials, Lifetime and Investigation Discovery programming, and on stage at places like 54 Below, NYMF, Theatre for the New City, and Pittsburgh CLO. Take a peek at my resume to learn more!

Some of my favorite activities (besides skipping and rainbow-chasing) are aerial silks, lyra, and pole. It’s all part of my master plan to defy gravity. And don’t be fooled, I might be pint-sized but I pack a powerful punch. I take kickboxing classes and love rocking out to the best of the 80s!

New York is one of those magical cities where you take a walk and even the sidewalks sparkle
