Olivia is a bicoastal actress with roots in San Diego, Boston and now, New York!
She is classically trained in voice and has consistently worked in theatre for 6 years before relocating to New York City 2 years ago to
deepen her study and understanding of the craft of acting at The William Esper Studio; intensely focusing on the Meisner Technique. During this time she took a break from performing. Recently graduating from Esper in June 2023, she's back and putting her technique into practice by auditioning, producing her own pieces for stage and film, as well as working as a freelance voiceover artist.
"I am attracted to stories that inspire thought and love. Roles that make me stretch and explore the full spectrum of the human experience. I am here as a vessel for catharsis. But also, let's have a lot of fun! Life is precious."
While not rehearsing, Olivia likes spending her time doing yoga, taking nature walks (where she picks flowers or foliage without fail), reading, cooking, going to art museums, and hosting her friends. She geeks out to speaking French, dancing like a loon, playing with accents, and writing.
