I've been in plays, webseries-es and commercials. The NY Times once called me 'priceless'. You can look it up if you feel like it. But that's not what I wanted to say.

NYC born and raised aerialist turned actress. I still have my best ideas when I am standing on my hands and I can hold said handstand for a very long time. Growing up my parents had difficulty convincing me that lip-syncing naked to the music of Les Miserables was not the right thing to do when guests came over. The only difference now is that I prefer to be clothed. When I am not out auditioning or working, I am coaching people to better health and happiness as a certified holistic wellness coach and dreaming of adopting another dog. I curate, produce and host a variety show called "No Holds Barred Variety" at Dixon Place in lower manhattan. http://codyschreger.com/
