Born and raised in San Francisco, Alanna is a true Unicorn. Yeehaw!

(Nope, don't say that, girl.)

I act. I sing. I podcast. I write, plays and comedic narrative nonfiction. I have a Grand Cross in my astrological chart, so I basically can't sit still.

I'm also trans femme/non-binary. My pronouns are She/Her or They/ Them. I was assigned male at birth but gender is a social construct created to put people in boxes. Fuck that. I'm a goddess, bebé.​

After graduating from the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts I got my BA in Theater from the University of Southern California. During that time I also studied abroad at the British American Drama Academy. And, drumroll please, I'm just received my MFA from the American Conservatory Theater.

In my professional career I've worked with ACT, Berkeley Rep, SF Playhouse, Santa Cruz Shakespeare, and SF BATCO.

I'm currently repped by Gasparro Management.
