When I was 5 years old, my parents introduced me to The Sound of Music (on a VHS tape recorded off the TV). Legend has it that I insisted on watching it every day after school for a year... and, so began my love of musical theatre, film and Julie Andrews. I am a NYC based Actor, Singer, Writer, and a graduate of the Hartt School of Music. I have worked regionally, off-Broadway, in TV, film, and cabaret, having co-wrote and produced a two-person cabaret act  - As We Stumble Along. I am currently working on a one woman show. You can find me on many Stage Stars recordings and at open mic nights around the city,  singing my heart out, or occasionally, rockin' out with a band.

Cocktails at Table 7- Inside New York’s Joe Allen celebrates the colorful history of one of New York City’s most iconic restaurants. We’ll share hilarious anecdotes and affectionate memories of fabulous evenings past while exploring how Joe Allen, Theatre District businesses, and the theatre community at large are preparing to move forward in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and the extended closure of Broadway.  We’ll talk to neighborhood regulars, Broadway luminaries, and longtime employees about what it is that drew them to Joe Allen and what makes this unassuming spot a welcoming home away from home for so many. 


Cocktails at Table 7- Inside New York’s Joe Allen is produced and hosted by Jason Woodruff, Dana Mierlak, and Sean Kent, with music by James Rubio and logo design/artwork by Christina D'Angelo. The producers would like to extend a special thank you to the owners of Joe Allen, Orso, and Bar Centrale Restaurants.
