About Charise


I’m an actor, director and writer with equal love for all of my hats. Collaboration and passionate story-telling wind my clock. I seek socially relevant stories that interrogate the concept of the “other,” and invoke empathy in their collaborators and audiences.

Originally from Laguna Beach, California, I’m happiest when outdoors and am a beach kid at heart. I’m bi-coastally dedicated, with degrees in Theater and Political Science from UC Berkeley, and an MFA in Acting From Brown/Trinity Rep.


I’ve acted on Showtime, Apple TV, Hulu and in several independent films. On stage, I’ve been seen at The Signature, The Flea, New York Theatre Workshop, EST, Dixon Place, Living Theatre, Interart, Theatre for New City, Access, Canal Park Playhouse, JACK, The Connelly, and others. I’m the resident commercial spokeswoman for The Loome! and Turnswing E-Learning. My writing has been produced across America. What keeps me inspired is working through various lenses of story-telling, for each creative journey inspires more creativity within me, and moves me to tell each story with greater depth.
