I'm Sarah Charlie Traisman, but you can call me Charlie. I’m an actor, writer, and producer splitting my time between NYC and L.A.
I hold an MFA from the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco and am the co-founder of Madhouse Films - a production company that aims to tell stories that shed light on our most pressing cultural conversations.
As an artist, I'm defined by my curiosity and sense of duality. I can capture the grace and heartbreak of Jackie O' and, in the next breath, embody the crudeness of an old curmudgeon who hates elitists. I search for the humanity in it all and I believe that's what makes my work exciting and surprising.
I'm also an artist deeply committed to community: I feel particularly passionate about new work that centers queer narratives. I strive to both create and be part of work that breaks expectations.
I am well aware that it is impossible to predict where this career will take me, but I’m along for the ride.
