A Little About Me:

Hi, my name is Isabella!


I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and started my acting career performing in over 30 shows at Contra Costa Civic Theatre in El Cerrito. My weekly rehearsals at CCCT were the one time during the week that I felt like I could be my most authentic self. I could just let my imagination run wild and exist without needing to be something for someone else. 


During one of my last shows with CCCT, everything changed for me as an actor. I was given this incredibly dark scene that was far different from the more light-hearted kids' shows I had done prior to it. I read the script feeling incredibly shocked that the director thought that this little 12-year-old could tackle the role of a drug-dealing teen who scared everyone in town. After performing this scene, I realized that I had found my passion, and that this could be what I'm meant to do with my life. 

I began more extensive training in high school at Oakland School for the Arts, a charter school with an immersive arts program that allowed me to focus in depth on my acting. I continued this training in college at Chapman University, graduating with a BFA in theatre performance. It was at Chapman that my love for theatre grew to include a love of film and voice acting. 


I am currently based in Los Angeles training under Amy Lyndon.


Most people who know me would say that I am an unequivocally happy person, so it often comes as a surprise that I prefer tackling darker projects and roles. They allow me to connect to a part of myself that doesn’t necessarily meet the surface but exists somewhere deeper within. As an actor, it is most important for me to be authentic in my portrayal of the layers of each character - no villain is just "evil" and no hero is just "good". 


I am a huge advocate for mental health, and care deeply about projects that have a focus on de-stigmatizing conversations surrounding depression, anxiety, eating disorders, etc... 


When I am not acting, I work as a tour guide at Universal Studios Hollywood where I am able to geek out over movies all day; and when I'm not working, I am most likely traveling around the country going to various theme parks to add to my coaster count! (Yes, I am a nerd.)
