A native New Yorker (adopted and shipped from Kentucky, like a box of whiskey), she spent her early life dancing with the Joffrey Ballet and the Eliot Feld Dance Company.


    Faryl altered course and attended LaGuardia High School, majoring in visual art. Pivoting back to performing arts Faryl received a BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts' Experimental Theater Wing and studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.


     Faryl has worked alongside legends like Julie Taymor, Lynne Ramsay and Kathleen Turner.

     She is the creator, writer, director and star of the cult TV show, Fancy Nancy's Funny Hour, and was featured as one of Paper Magazine's Most Beautiful People. 

     Finally merging her love of visual and performing arts she made her first short MARY MEET GRACE, which has won multiple awards over its robust festival run. Her next films ANY SIGN AT ALL and WHEN IT'S HARD are about to begin their festival runs. Faryl is gearing up to shoot ALL IT TOOK this summer and developing two features.



"It’s a film that deserves to own the fest circuit."
