Amanda fell in love with the stage in preschool, when she was given the solo for "O Come Little Children" in the Christmas concert.
A San Francisco Bay Area native, she now lives in New York City. She's performed Off-Broadway, regionally, internationally, on film and TV, in voiceovers, and audiobooks.
Amanda earned her B.A. in theatre at American University in Washington, D.C. She earned her M.A. in Text and Performance at the acclaimed Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Currently, she's studying stage combat with Neutral Chaos in Brooklyn. She recently received a Pass with Recommendation in Unarmed combat and Knife skills, by the SAFD, in 2019.
In addition to her work as an actress, Amanda has worked as a director - her directorial debut short film, DOGMATE, is being submitted to festivals in 2020 - devisor, script developer, script reader, and voice and text captain. She's taught Shakespeare and movement to high schoolers and summer campers with Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, and Theatre Under the Stars: Shakespeare in the Valley. She was a guest lecturer on Theatre and Modernism at Mission College in Santa Clara, California.
When she's not on stage, Amanda edits college application essays and does freelance home organization. When she's not working, she's loves to travel. Her last acting job pre-COVID was in Northern Italy, so her days off were spent on trains traversing the Emilia-Romagna, Veneto, and Lombardy regions.
