She can be seen in “The Hunger Games” franchise, and in indies such as “Buster’s Mal Heart,” starring Rami Malek, Independent Spirit Award-winning "Without." Of late, she stars as Naomi Florida, the rapid-cycling, narcissistic antagonist of Jerzy Rose's dark satire "Neighborhood Food Drive," winner of the Spirit of Slamdance 2017, and Brian Jordan Alvarez's ("The Gay and Wondrous Life of Caleb Gallo") forthcoming debut feature.

She made her first film in 2011, co-directing “The Mud," about a blue-blooded couple and their perverse relationship with a feral woman who shows up at their house. The follow-up, “The Greggs,” a surreal comedy about the cult of mind slaves who write the SATs, won the Spirit of Slamdance in 2014. Her next two shorts, "Old Friends” and “Salesmanship,” have played at festivals domestically and internationally, including Fantastic Fest, Raindance, Maryland, Sidewalk, Sarasota and Montclair. They have been described as darkly comic, surreal psychosexual hellscapes all around. She is currently developing her first features, "The Lounge Singer," and "The Breeders."

She ran a monthly variety show in New York, The Witching Hour, a cult variety show featuring a wide swath of underground performances, hosting, singing and dancing. She also performs burlesque, known all over town for her acts that mingle the erotic with the grotesque.
