Originally from Westfield NJ, Erica moved to NYC after graduating with honors from Muhlenberg College of Allentown, PA. There she double majored in Theatre and English. Now settled down in NYC Erica enjoys performing, producing, choreographing and teaching dance. She also enjoys good pizza and laughs with her cat.
She has been on the Lane for about 7 years now. Over the years she has worked countless events with us. Her favorite to date was working for Oreo on their street team accapella gig that announced their new Wonderfilled Jingle. Erica loves that she’s “never worked with anyone who was drunk with power. Everyone is laid-back, chill, but knows how to work hard!”
Outside the Lane Erica stays busy! In addition to her ML work, Erica teaches dance and theatre to elementary school kids, takes Improv classes at UCB and performs. Erica founded The Fishbowl Collective, a NYC based, Muhlenberg alumni group of performance artists whose mission is to create, connect and produce work.
