Gina's career as a performer began with a lie...

At the tender age of 2, Gina made her mother tell the local dancing school she was 3 in order to get into the school a year earlier!  She's been performing ever since...

Born in Staten Island, New York, Gina began modeling at the age of 6, appearing in Kool-Aid and Poochie ads. Her first real acting role was in her 8th grade production of The Pajama Game. That was when she disc
overed theater.

At St. Joseph by the Sea High School, Gina nurtured her love of theatre, appearing in numerous productions. After graduation, she attended SUNY Albany, where, as a theatre major, she starred in
many shows, including Aven' U Boyz. After college, Gina returned home to New York City to attend the prestigious Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theater, and graduated from the 2-year conservatory program. Gina has since performed in numerous Off-Broadway productions, including: Tony N Tina's Wedding, The Great Divide and the award-winning original plays Klepto and Merging.

She has had the pleasure of working with actors such as: Vincent Pastore, Dan Lauria, and Joe Piscopo, as well as legendary producers Sonny Grosso and Phil Ramone. Gina has starred in several independent films as well, including: Merging, Eviction, and the upcoming Nadine (currently in pre-production).

Gina has also played the role of producer, bringing to the stage numerous projects including the Off-Broadway hit Mercury: The Afterlife and Times of a Rock God, when she teamed up for the first time with writer/director Charles Messina and his production company NahNotOutsideMyHouse! Productions, Inc.

Broadwayworld has described Gina as an "up and coming actress whose work is one of pure and unbridled acting intensity."  Doolee called her performance in Merging  "a real tour de force".

Charles Messina has said of Gina's acting work, "She has that precious talent that every great actor must possess...the ability to tell the truth."  

How ironic, for a career that began with a little white lie!
