A delightful blend of classical training and improvisational pep, Carolyn displays a dynamic range of characters: from a meticulous mom opposite Katharine Ross in Wini + George to an acrobatic ceiling crawler in BioShock to every spunky Shakespearean heroine known to man.
Originally from upstate New York, she now lives in Phoenix where she serves as Director of Education & Outreach at Valley Youth Theatre and Artistic Director of Humanity Play Project. She is a proud member of AEA, SAG-AFTRA, and AATE.
Training includes: The Second City, The Groundlings, Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum, Yale (BA), NYU (MA) and UCLA (MFA).
A special shout out to Paul Newman’s The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford, CT and The Painted Turtle Camp in Lake Hughes, CA – both part of the SeriousFun Children’s Network. Carolyn is a long time supporter and volunteer, as well as former summer camp staff at Hole in the Wall. She is currently a volunteer with the Cancer Support Community Arizona.
Yes, and…she loves Pat Benatar, cartwheels and her rescue dog Quincy.
