I studied acting at Fordham University, MXATNYU Grad Acting Summer Program, and currently study improv and sketch at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City. I write for UCBT's house sketch team, Attention Shoppers on Maude Night at UCBT Hell's Kitchen, I also write, perform, and direct with my video sketch team, Shiners, and I was a semifinalist for the NBC/UCBT 2018 Diversity Showcase. I’ve been featured at NYC Sketch Fest, She Makes Me Laugh Femme Fest, BoogieManja Talent Showcase 2019, the OFSUG Character Showcase, QuickieFest, and FEAST: A Performance Series.

My late night show, Late Night with Lani (Featured in Time Out New York) ran at The Pit Loft for 2 years, I premiered my solo show, The Britney Network (directed by Chrissy Shackelford) at the PIT's 4th Annual SOLOCOM Festival, I have written & performed for Sketch Cram at UCB, was an actor on BoogieManja at the PIT, and I can be seen in various video sketches for Scary Mommy and The Dad, and in digital videos for Thrillist, The Dodo, Ebay, Burger King and more.

Other than that, I really love Minnesota, my kitty RiRi, and binge-watching Beyoncé live performance videos on YouTube.
