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 was a finalist in the Warner Brothers Writers Workshop. She also wrote a comedy pilot under the mentorship of the former HBO show runner of The Ricky Gervais Show which was selected for a sold-out industry showcase sponsored by The Blacklist. Cara's video shorts have been featured on Hellogiggles, WhoHaha, and The Guardian (amongst others), and she was even hired to do punch ups on a feature previously in development with National Lampoon. Additionally, Cara is a proud graduate of UCB and The Second City, and she serves as a freelance writer for Cosmopolitan, Travel and Leisure, and the literary magazine, Off Assignment.
