Hi, I’m Nora! I am a Brooklyn-based actor, writer and improviser who also has 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).
I graduated from Vassar College in 2016 with a B.A. in Neuroscience and a concentration in Theater. 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 resented her then (I was much more taken with the role of the narrator), but thank goodness for her persistence. Since that day I have been hungry for even more challenging and experimental roles.
During high school I was lucky enough to be part of some professional productions through New Century Theater, located in my hometown of Northampton, MA, as well as pursue comedy with my improv troupe. In college I continued to pursue comedy as well as expanding my theatrical interests to experimental theater, devised theater, film/TV and sound design. In the fall of 2014 I attended the British American Drama Academy in London which really allowed me to concentrate on acting, and realize that theater was what I wanted to pursue after college.
Currently, in New York, I have have been writing scripts, both film/TV and theatrical, doing loads of improv (studied at UCB) and acting in some really exciting projects. When I’m not acting/writing/improvising I love to cook, explore Brooklyn, snuggle my friends’ pets, read the memoirs of other brunette women with bangs and stay caught up on this golden age of television. Thanks for reading!
