Midwestern warmth with perseverance and grace

Hello and thank you for visiting!

 

My name is Sara and I am a Wisconsin born-and-raised actress. I've lived on both coasts; first being the energetic Big Apple and now the glorious La La Land. 

Having lived in both bustling cities, I've learned where hard work and perseverance can take you.

Experiences include:

*Stage and musical theatre

*Film

*Television

*Commercials

*Voiceover

 

**and NOW my amazing writing partner Thomas and I have three episodic TV shows in the works....

Stay Tuned!
 

I've been fortunate enough to to work along side:

*Tom Selleck (Blue Bloods)

*Uzo Aruba (Orange is the New Black)

*Jonathan Bennet, Anthony App and Alyson Hannigan (Do You Take This Man)

*Ryan Eggold (Director for Literally Right Before Aaron)

*Molly Shannon 

*Charlie Day

and many more!!

 

As much as I love being in front of the camera...

being behind has brought me opportunities for:

*Set Designer Assistant (Another Love Story)

*Wardrobe Assistant (modeling shoots and music videos)
*Props Designer (The Seagull)

*Assistant Director​

*Choreographer (Sound of Music)

*Assistant Choreographer (HMS Pinafore and Les Miserables School Edition)

Upcoming projects include another opportunity for Set Designer Assistant as well as Script Supervisor.
