MY MOM ALWAYS TAUGHT ME TO LEAD WITH KINDNESS.

Hey there! Nice to meet you. I'm guessing you are here because you love telling stories as much as I do, connecting with others, and empowering communities through art. Thank you for stopping by!


My name is Claire and I am a Pittsburgh-based actor, producer and teaching artist originally from Rochester, NY. I am a proud graduate of the University of Pittsburgh (where I now serve as an Adjunct Instructor!)  and had the privilege of studying at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in NYC. 


When I am not teaching, drinking a strong coffee, watching my brother play baseball or stirring the sauce in Nana's kitchen, I serve as the Artistic Director for Jumping Jack Theater. Our small but mighty team creates original works for audiences that benefit from sensory and autism-friendly strategies.


I also love puppets, Chardonnay, trampolines, cookies & cream ice cream, and hiking!

If you're interested in booking a creative drama residency for your classroom or organization, taking private acting lessons virtually or in-person, collaborating on a film or play, or just grabbing coffee, please send me a message! I look forward to hearing from you.
