She has performed in two of Chiori Miyagawa's beautiful plays: the epic I Came To Look For You on Tuesday at La Mama, and as Woman With Tragic Hair in This Lingering Life at HERE.

Her sadistic Queen Isabella appears in the latest episode of Jayson Musson's popular web series The Adventures of Jamel: The Time Traveling B-Boy.
