She is currently executive producing a documentary series developed with Discovery and TED and filming across Europe and the Middle East.

She spent three years on the roster of Amy Poehler’s Upright Citizens Brigade and played a serial killer on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. During her tenure at Transcendence Theatre Company, she worked in marketing & publicity, front-of-house management, design & branding, casting, ticket sales, event planning, assistant stage management, community outreach & service, merchandise sales, and arts education.

At the corner of the arts and wellness, Brooke is a certified Rainbowdance practitioner, which is a sound, movement, and music-based early childhood intervention from the direct artistic lineage of Isadora Duncan for children who missed critical learning windows.
Brooke loves to eat. She's lived in eight countries, eaten street food and at Michelin star restaurants, and her favorite food is still the food her Italian American grandmothers made while she was growing up in Connecticut (the most Italian state in the union).
I have the best partner. I wish I could clone him for everyone because it's rough out there. Something special about our marriage is how easy it is. Not that everything is easy, but the us part of it is.
Clara & Russo
It's a shame Clara is so shy. Her personality is so small. (NO)
We don't know what Russo is like yet because he is still a potato.
Fenny & Buddy
Buddy loves laps and food. He is just happy to be here.
Fenny is the sheriff in town. It's Fenny's world, we all just live in it (if she lets us).
