Hi, I’m Melissa. I’m an actor, writer, and director. I live in Los Angeles with my boyfriend and three cats and love crossword puzzles, punk rock, and pizza. Equal rights issues are very important to me and I strive to be actively involved in making the world a better place. Some days, I’m very lucky and get to teach acting to kids.
Ok, now for the professional stuff….
Melissa started as a dancer in her hometown of St. Louis, MO and her love of the stage led her to acting. As an actor, Melissa has been a part of many wonderful stage productions, such as To Kill a Mockingbird (Mayella) and Proof (Catherine).
Melissa studied acting in Chicago, training with Victory Gardens Theater and The Acting Studio, and performed in a trilogy of horror films with the Chicago-based Herbivore Productions.
Since moving to Los Angeles, Melissa has completed the conservatory program at Second City Hollywood and spends time performing improv, choreographing, and acting in web series & independent film. Keep an eye out for her next project, Fantasy Calls, which will debut in late 2015. She’s flattered if you took the time to read this entire page.
