Why hello, I’m Nora! I am a Brooklyn-based actor, writer and improviser (isn’t everyone). But I also have a lot of experience with foley sound (like in the old days when there would be a person making the sound effects for radio…I do that…but for live theater…and I use computers/tech equipment…it’s random).
I graduated from Vassar College in 2016 with a B.A. in Neuroscience and a concentration in Theater, and studied at the British American Drama Academy in 2014. However, I’d have to credit my kindergarten teacher for my big acting debut, when she foisted the role of The Very Hungry Caterpillar on me. I wanted to be the narrator but I didn’t realized the weight of that titular character. And from hence…a star/monster was born.
Since the kindergarten debut, I’ve formed a chrysalis and emerged (really leaning into this metaphor huh) a multi-hyphenate creator; an actor-writer-foley-artist-filmmaker specifically interested in telling, and assisting in telling, stories that merge genre (love a dark comedy) and give space for new voices and stories to be told. When I’m not acting/writing/blahblah I do absolutely nothing but stare into the void or eat immense amounts of pasta (see image for proof) or make my signature dish,“Big Pasta”.
