Bit by the Acting Giraffe...


Georgia first toddled onto the silver screen when she planted a big kiss on "Geoffrey the Giraffe” in a national Toys R Us commercial at the tender age of one; there was no turning back...


As an actor, Georgia has worked on Broadway, off-Broadway, and in dozens of distinguished regional theatre productions, including playing Jill Mason in the acclaimed Guild Hall production of Equus, starring Alec Baldwin, and originating the role of Lane in the world premiere of Lyle Kessler’s House on Fire (recently published by Samuel French). She has appeared on four major TV shows in the last year alone, including guest starring in Law & Order: SVU (which we all know is a rite of passage for New York actors), has worked on many independent films, commercials, web series, music videos, video games, live and recorded comedy sketches, and been in more readings and workshops than she can count.


Georgia's personal blend of vulnerable vixen and straight-shootin' sass-monster has made her flexible and fortunate enough play a delicious range of characters and span many genres. She has had the privilege of being directed by industry titans such as David Hyde Pierce, Eric Stoltz, Jack O’Brien, Harris Yulin, and Tony Walton, while getting to work with such prominent actors as Annette Bening, James Franco, Elisabeth Moss, Mercedes Ruehl, and Tracy Letts, to name(drop) just a few.

As a writer, Georgia has worked as a resident arts & culture journalist for her favorite hometown newspaper, The East Hampton Independent, as well as contributing freelance pieces to several other Hamptons publications over the years. She has been published as a poet and children’s story author, penned and co-penned many scripts, even working from time to time as a script consultant for new works. Last year, she served as the official judge of The Hamptons' annual Halloween BOO! Short and Scary Story Contest.


As a director, she has led both full scale and one-act plays in and around New York City, plus many children’s theatre productions with The Young Artists and Writers Project and other childrens' theatre groups. Her on-camera directing work includes five episodes of the comedic web series Two-Mara, a music video for viral sensation Mikey Shyne, and several short films and web sketches. Additionally, she has produced both short and feature length independent films, and has worked as a freelance casting director for several stage and screen projects. 

Georgia’s greatest passions, tied only with acting, is helping other actors reach their full potential, She has developed a reputation as a trusted, respected, and sought-after acting coach, working with actors individually as well as in her group audition class, The Seasoned Actor Workshop.
