Hey, I'm Mandy!

Los Angeles, California

Hi!  I'm a filmmaker, actress and photographer living in Los Angeles with my husband Jim, and am loving my new role as a mommy. I'm a graduate of the renowned Joanne Baron/D.W. Brown Studio for acting, hold degrees from Penn State in both Film/Video Production and Theatre Arts, and have studied with Diana Castle at The Imagined Life.

 

Acting credits include Longmire, Exeter (Sundance’s scripted podcast with Jeanne Tripplehorn and Ray McKinnon), and the leading role in the indie feature Leaving Limbo. I've directed short films that have premiered at Sedona International Film Festival and LA Shorts Fest.


Aside from storytelling, my interests are religious history/mysticism, Nazi Germany, the German language, Irish lore, old bookstores, and fairytales.
