When I was born, my parents declared themselves executive producers and decorated my birth announcement with klieg lights, so it's no surprise I started performing with my dad, guitarist Rick Chinisci, when I was three.
Now based in Los Angeles, you may have seen me on TV shows like Baskets and Impress Me. I'm a company member at New Musicals Inc. and 1/3 of Scirens--a creative team dedicated to promoting science through entertainment.
My writing stems from an eclectic array of personal interests, and my work has appeared on sites including OpenFit, Sheer Miracle, Voyage Vixens, and Ms. in the Biz. In 2018, Scirens' half-hour pilot MOMs made it to the finals of the NY Television Festival Scripts Contest. This year, Anchors Away, the half-hour pilot that I co-wrote and co-star in, premiered at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival. I also wrote some music for Minnesota Public Radio, and I irregularly blog on this very site.
If I were a pair of shoes, I'd be rhinestone Birkenstocks, a pair of which I own and find to be glamorously down to earth. I love yoga, kitties, and mid-century aesthetics. Sure, it betrays my Italian heritage to eat vegan, but I promise I make up for it in pasta consumption.
