When I was born, my parents declared themselves executive producers and decorated my birth announcement with klieg lights, so it's no surprise I started singing with my dad, guitarist Rick Chinisci, when I was three.

I began my career performing world premiere musicals on the east coast, for which I received four Helen Hayes Award nominations. Modern Songbook Records released my two albums, and I toured the U.S. with my original musical comedy Einstein's Girl.

Now based in Los Angeles, you may have seen me on TV shows like Baskets and Impress Me. I'm a series regular voice actor on Pessimists Archive and a custom voice producer with Premiere Networks. I'm also 1/3 of Scirens--a creative team dedicated to promoting science through entertainment. Scirens' comedy pilot MOMs was a finalist in the 2018 NY Television Festival Scripts Contest. In 2019, Anchors Away, the comedy I wrote and star in with Tara Jean O'Brien, screened at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival and the Lift-Off Film Festival.

Like a pair of rhinestone Birkenstocks: elevated earthiness

My other writing stems from an eclectic array of personal interests, appearing on sites including OpenFitSheer Miracle, Voyage Vixens, Ms. in the Biz., as well as covering science entertainment for Scirens. I've composed music for film, comedy songs, and a disco number for Minnesota Public Radio. I also irregularly blog on this very site.

If I were a pair of shoes, I'd be rhinestone Birkenstocks (which I own and find to be glamorously down to earth). I love yoga, kitties, ecochic living, and fine art. Sure, it betrays my Italian heritage to eat vegan, but I promise I make up for it in pasta consumption.
