Moreen is a writer, director, producer, author, and actress who has successfully made the transition from 8th grade Class Clown to largely unknown stand-up comedian with a die-hard fan base of a Chihuahua named Fellini.
In July 2015, she directed a mini-pilot for a major Network for which she is also Co-EP. In December 2014, her absurdist-comedy short film, MEET THE ZILLAS, made its debut at the Los Angeles International Underground Film Festival where it won "Best Film Audience Award". Moreen’s prior short film, THE HACKS, is a highly improvised mockumentary of comics preparing to go on tour. She has also directed sketch comedy off-Broadway.
Moreen is also a comedienne. Her stand-up comedy break came in 2010 when, following her breakup with a frenchman over the "symbolism of a missing bedframe" she made her stand-up debut with material about her breakup with a frenchman over the symbolism of... you get it. Two months later she was offered a contract to release her first comedy album by one of the leading comedy management/production companies, New Wave Dynamics. She performs around Los Angeles including Malo's and The World Famous Comedy Store. She has performed with TAYLOR WILLIAMSON, LAURIE KILMARTIN, RORY SCOVEL, BOBBY LEE, JODI MILLER, and LOUIS CK (ok only in front of him on TV), and nearly MARGARET CHO and BRETT BUTLER. Don't ask.
She is a contributing author to Alisha Gaddis' WOMEN'S COMEDIC MONOLOGUES THAT ARE ACTUALLY FUNNY (Applause Books, July 2014) and TEEN GIRLS' COMEDIC MONOLOGUES THAT ARE ACTUALLY FUNNY (Applause Books, Dec 2015).
Moreen is also the author of the novel, LOST IN MANHATTAN, a roman à clef. Her bookl has been called "Zippy and laugh-out-loud hilarious," by Tish Cohen (Author of TOWN HOUSE), and "a winner" by the legendary Pete Noyes (author of The Real L.A. Confidential, and Emmy and Peabody winning journalist).
Moreen has been acting since she was a child doing theatre, and makes it a point to create roles for herself in her own film projects including MEET THE ZILLAS and THE HACKS. She also had a principal dramatic role in a film by Michael Bartlett, HOUSE OF LAST THINGS alongside R.J. Mitte ("Breaking Bad"), Blake Berris ("Days of Our Lives"), and Lindsey Haun ("True Blood"). That film is now available on Hulu and Netflix.
Originally from Coos Bay, Oregon, Moreen studied creative writing and film production at USC and Syracuse University, acting at the Beverly Hills Playhouse, improv at The Groundlings, and pattern-making at the Fashion Institute of Technology. After eight years in Manhattan, and working in the trenches of William Morris Agency, ICM, and Oxygen and designing and writing about fashion, Moreen lives in Los Angeles for the third time, the charm, where she is currently director of development for Outpost Entertainment, an ITV company.
