Coming from the New York area, Dana is of Italian and Eastern European descent. She has always had a love for acting and dancing and has taken extensive training with various coaches and with well-known institutions.
Notable training includes her recent work with Wynn Handman on Character Development until his recent passing, Karen Kohlhaas, and Sam Gonzalez at the Atlantic Theater Company working on Cold Reading and Practical Aesthetics and Ted Bardy on Miesner technique.
Her recent theatrical work includes an original work, titled “A Sketch of New York” by Joe DiNozzi in which Dana played a Lead, the play consisted of eighteen witty sketches of varying lengths lampooning life in the Big Apple and was a laugh out loud hit played in local playhouses.
Recent TV, Film, and independent project work include Lost Girls, Godfather of Harlem, Lincoln Rhymes : Hunt for the Bone Collector, The Duece, Kimmy Schmidt, and Five Boroughs. Dana has recently been cast as an assassin in an upcoming Sony Feature Film Production and is looking forward to heading to California when filming begins.
When Dana isn’t acting, she loves staying fit, either running or doing Yoga, loves to make people laugh with her witty sense of humor, and since she lives near the Jersey Shore, she can’t get enough of the beach when the weather’s just right.
Dana is currently getting audition requests from casting directors for numerous upcoming projects.
