Cara spent her grade school summers attending performing arts camp in New York before attending Northwestern University where she studied acting and creative writing. It was in an audition gone wrong that she realized she was accidentally funny! After graduation, she toured as a comedy performer with Healthworks Theatre Company before making the move to LA. She didn't like many of the roles available to women or the treatment of women in Hollywood so, on a dare, she wrote a short for herself which ended up on the front page of Funny or Die... and she learned she was also a script writer! Since then, she hasn't looked back.
Cara's sitcom spec won The 2017 Austin Film Fest and she currently has a TV series in development with National Lampoon. She serves as a freelance writer for Cosmopolitan, Travel and Leisure, and several other digital publications; and her video shorts have been featured on The Guardian, Elizabeth Banks’ WhoHaha, and Zooey Deschanel’s Hellogiggles (amongst others). Cara is a proud graduate of UCB and The Second City.
