Well, let’s start with the elephant in the room. Yes, growing up was hard with Fingerhut as a last name because kids can be mean. And, yes, it IS the german word for thimble. And, no, I’m terrible with a needle and thread.
I grew up in Washington D.C., but once the acting bug bit me I came out to Hollywood where I’ve been acting, writing, and performing voiceover for games and animation for 11 years. I graduated from Northwestern with a double major in Theater and Communications and a minor in Literature. Oh, and Meryl Streep once told me I was very talented. I think I mumbled something back that resembled “thank you.”
My dog’s name is Leeloo because I’m a bonafide nerd and The Fifth Element is one of the best sci-fi films ever. I’m huge fan of horror, comedy, and anything from the sci-fi/fantasy world.
While pursuing acting, I’ve picked up many other trades along the way, including working construction, being a sous-chef, and managing fitness studios.
