As an actress and writer, Angela is a sassy mix of humor and heart. She has performed at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater and the classic St. George Theatre in New York City. She's penned comedy pilots for television, which HBO affiliates deemed "funny with broad appeal." Her film and television work includes Oscar winners Al Pacino, Paul Haggis, and Barry Levinson. The Miami Herald touted Angela as an "Actress on the Rise."
In 2012, Angela founded Charley Bear Productions Inc, with a vision to create a shift in perspective, showcasing the women in front of and behind the camera. Charley Bear produced the dramatic short film, "Without Grace", starring Angela alongside Emmy award winning actress Ann Dowd (The Handmaid's Tale) and tenured screen actor John Doman (Blue Valentine, The Wire). Angela penned the script and under the guidance of Oscar winning producer Scott Franklin, brought on the talented Deborah Kampmeier to direct (Sundance Grand Jury Prize Nominee, Hounddog). The film qualified for the 90th Annual Academy Awards and released on Amazon after a successful charitable fundraiser for NAMI.
With a degree from Emory University in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology, Angela is fascinated with the brain and the overlap of art and science. The synergy of this will be actualized in her upcoming narrative virtual reality film, “The Art of Saving a Life”, which advanced to the final round of the Sundance New Frontier Labs. She released “Abduction," a Google sponsored VR thriller series and has spoken on numerous panels as a thought leader in VR. She (line) produced the Sundance Feature "Clara's Ghost" and is passionate about telling stories that make a social impact, more often than not with a hilarious edge.
