Actor, Writer, Producer currently living in LA. 

 

Kristen grew up in Philadelphia with her stereotypically crazy Greek-American family and graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Drama that she earned in just three years *Hair flip*

Kristen is known for her portrayal of the titular Lisa in I Am Lisa, a revenge thriller directed by horror vet Patrick Rea. The film is available to rent online or through Redbox and is coming to streaming, DVD, On Demand, and Blu-Ray in March 2021. 

Recently released: Obsessed with the Babysitter premieres on Lifetime TV on January 9th 2021. Kristen stars in this dance thriller as the babysitter Elaine. 

 

Kristen also stars in the Lifetime original film Mommy Would Never Hurt You, in WongFu's (3M subscribers) newest rom-com series Dating After College, and in Fake News Writer, a comedic web series that won the 2019 Webby Award for Online Entertainment!

Coming soon: Kristen stars in two rom-coms Wedding Screeners and The Christmas Dance, and The Hoarding, a short directed by and starring Karen Gillan of Jumanji and Avengers, that is currently being developed into a feature film with Warner Bros. A sequel to I Am Lisa is also in development.

Kristen is a performer on the UCB Mess Hall improv team Parliament and is the writer and producer of two feature films that are currently in pre-production.

 

She is also the Producer of the feature film Bobcat Moretti starring Vivica A Fox, Taryn Manning, Oscar-nominee Sally Kirkland and more.  

Kristen is driven by her strong sense of empathy and a passion to illuminate honest human behavior in nuanced and empowered female characters.
But really, this is all an elaborate plan to someday be a celebrity guest judge on the Food Network Channel.
