actor + singer-songwriter

Hi, I'm Kara.
I'm an actor and singer-songwriter based in New York. I was last seen performing in the new Off-Broadway musical, Islander. In December 2022, I released by debut folk album, Something Blue, which can be found on all music streaming platforms.

I'm a proud graduate of The Boston Conservatory with my BFA in Musical Theater and an emphasis in Songwriting and Devised Theater. I went on to receive Meisner-based training for two years at The William Esper Studio of Acting under instructor, Bruce McCarty. 

I've been lucky enough to have been chosen for a few honors. I was selected to receive the 2019 Roger Sturtevant Musical Theater Award through Actors' Equity Foundation for which I'm very grateful to the casting directors of Casting Society of America and the members of Actors' Equity Foundation. During my time at The Boston Conservatory, I attended as an Ivy and Fran Scricco Scholar and was selected for an Entrepreneurial Grant to study abroad with Kristin Linklater at her voice centre in Scotland.

I like drinking coffee, learning about whales, thrifting, traveling, and doing yoga. I enjoy reading children's books that contain a playful dose of dark humor.
