Misha is an actor, writer, director, and producer with projects spanning theater, film, TV and digital. Three-time finalist for the Sundance/YouTube New Voices Lab for her digital series Lusty Glances, Solitaire, and The Industry, she is now in active development for nine shows. Her award-winning short films Pee Sitting Down and Tinder is the Night are currently screening at festivals around the world, and her indie TV pilot Strut is premiering at festivals in the spring of 2018.
As an actor, she has appeared regularly on the Emmy Award-winning show A Crime to Remember. Off-Broadway writer/director credits include three Chekhovian satires set in a 1980’s high school, and the original comedy A Seagull is Born. Off- Broadway acting credits include The Crucible, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and Psycho Beach Party. Misha first achieved notoriety in New York as an experimental performance artist, where she garnered a great deal of press for her media manipulation and public satires, most notably Re-Virginization, The Mister and Miss Williamsburg Pageant, and the Bob Ross-themed fundraiser Beat the Devil Out of It which raised money for inner city art students.
Much of Misha’s unique voice comes from her experiences in both New York and London as a young, single female. Female empowerment is part of Misha’s core creative value system, and with each piece she produces she delivers an authentic female narrative with a female-driven cast. Her work is funny and charming and at the same time approaches equal rights, sexuality, and gender identity in a way that is inclusive to both men and women.
