Originally from San Francisco, Elizabeth lives in Brooklyn with her  gorgeous cat, Natasha. She (Elizabeth, not Natasha) holds a BFA from NYU, where she trained with Stella Adler Studios, the Atlantic Theater Company, and Mary Overlie’s Viewpoints. You can see Elizabeth as quirky neighbor “Beth” in the Amusement Films webseries, WE MIGHT BE SUPERHEROES! Elizabeth also hosts and performs at experimental Shakespeare art salons with New York troupe, The Dark Lady Players. In addition to performing, she designs costumes for stage and screen and makes headdress art pieces that show at galleries around New York City. Elizabeth sometimes breaks into a British accent for no reason at all, and is therefore grateful to Paul and Patricia for providing her with an excuse this December.
