Reflective, seductive, spirited, angry, stubborn, resistant, longing - this is a breakout role for Brentan whose performance choreographs these states of mind into a heartbreaking dance.

I'm a New York-based, Meisner-trained actress, voiceover artist & producer working in theater, film, tv, commercials & voiceovers.

Originally from Italy, although you'd never know it - check out my voiceover demo to hear what I sound like - I grew up all over Europe before landing in New York for my acting training. 

I'm a proud graduate of the 3-year Conservatory Training program at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and of the Academy Theatre Company, and of Andrea Dantas' 2-year Meisner Technique training program. 

I've collaborated with some of New York's most exciting theater companies including Nylon Fusion Theater Co.White Horse Theater and toUch Performance Art, performing in venues such as Cherry Lane Theatre, La MaMaWorkShop theater, and many others. 

I'm especially passionate about collaborating on new works: I produce work on stage and film, and can usually be found originating roles in workshops & staged readings. Recent theater highlights include originating roles in the World Premiere of Erik Ehn's Clover at LaMaMa ETC directed by Glory Kadigan, in the World Premiere of The Journey I Never Made with Kairos Italy Theater at Cherry Lane Theatre, and in the World Premiere of Frank J. Avella's Lured at TNC.

Latest on-camera projects include the independent short Sleeping Dogs, and the short Cake that I also wrote and produced - both of which have been featured at film festivals around the country -- as well as TV shows and commercials.

I can also be heard in dozens of commercial, narration and educational voiceovers in English & Italian, as well as found narrating audiobooks. Check out the latest book I narrated for Penguin Random House.

In addition to my acting work, I'm busy behind-the-scenes, serving as KIT - Kairos Italy Theater's Literary and Producing director, as well as being Executive Producer of KIT's annual festival of Italian theater, In Scena!, since 2013. I'm also a published theatrical translator whose numerous Italian to English translations of some of Italy's top playwrights have been produced and performed internationally.
