Hey, I'm Crystal!

New York, New York

Hi, my name is Crystal. I am an actress and filmmaker,

My critically-acclaimed quirky romantic comedy short film GIRL CLOWN  just finished an award-winning film festival run and I am currently making it into a feature film, which is funding on Seed and Spark.

 

I am also an entrepreneur, and was named by LaunchHer's as a "40 under 40 Up-and-Coming Women Entrepreneur" with my business partner Christine Cox.

 

My current acting work includes the upcoming web series ACTING SCHOOL,

indie films REARVIEW MIRRORS, SOLE MATES, and THE VENTRILOQUIST,

as well of lots of TV and commercials.

I am also an accomplished lyric soprano and musical theater actress, with many national and international Broadway tour credits.
