0114-Final(WEBonly)V2      Colleen is an Irish-Italian, thoroughly-enough-bred, loudmouth, Chicagoan. Her only legit credit is a B.F.A. in Acting from Northern Illinois University.

In 2014, Colleen decided to make a long, 18 day trek, and she moved to Los Angeles, California. No, this was not to get away from the cold, but rather so she could pursue her dream of becoming an even more poor, more self-deprecating waitress.

Prior to moving to Los Angeles, Colleen did not make her living acting or designing SFX make-up for Indie Horror Films. She also did NOT make ANY money performing on the stage in productions such as, the critically acclaimed CHERRYWOOD directed by the Tony award winning David Cromer, or playing the lead role in the female version of Neil Simon’s, THE ODD COUPLE. And she in fact lost money performing improv comedy in shows like SISTER BERNIE’S BINGO BASH and JUSTICE IS SERVED.

She is also an award winning writer, as she took home BEST SHORT SCREENPLAY for her script KARL t the RED DIRT FILM FESTIVAL.
