I’m a writer, an actress and a new media enthusiast.

Right now, I’m a producer on MTV’s show ‘Pranked’ and I host the web series ‘OPM’.

Previously, I produced and hosted the show ‘Insight’ for Entrepreneur Magazine. I was also the online anchor for ‘Insider Headline News’ and worked with NBC’s  Emmy and Peabody Award-winning Special Investigative Unit.

I have my Masters in acting from London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.  And while living in London, I wrote, produced and acted in the award-winning play ‘A Patch of Blue’ at the King’s Head Theatre.

My Dad is Dutch, my mom’s American, and I grew up in Zurich, Switzerland and on the East Coast of the U.S.  I now live in Los Angeles with my awesome husband Jon and our two cats, Fork and Spoon.

(my last name is pronounced “Ashes”.)
