Jenni grew up in New York where she spent most of her childhood performing in the arts. At the age of 3 she started playing classical violin and studies the Suzuki method. Shortly after, piano, flute and voice followed. She started acting at age 6 with an industrial film and did some print modeling as well. In high school and at NYU, where she received a BA in music, she performed in various choirs, orchestras, theater and student films. In college, her brother bought her a guitar for her birthday. Soon after, she taught herself to play guitar and began writing songs. She joined a few bands and then eventually went solo; performing at various NYC venues like Ace of Clubs, The National Underground, Sidewalk Cafe and The Pussy Cat Lounge and more. Around that time she was offered a role in the play ANGRY YOUNG WOMEN, by director/writer Matt Morillo, which was performed at the Theatre for the New City in Manhattan. This led to a lead role in the Los Angeles production of: THE INVENTOR, THE ESCORT, THE PHOTOGRAPHER, HER BOYFRIEND AND HIS GIRLFRIEND (Morillo). Jenni was then offered a supporting role John Bucher's WHEN KINGS BATTLE (opposite James Kyson, NBC Heroes) which was nominated for Best Overall Short at the Hollyshorts Film Festival. She also helped create and starred in the spin off web series of ANGRY YOUNG WOMEN.
Her latest work includes a lead role in AN EXCUSE TO BEHAVE BADLY which she co-wrote and produced. The play premiered this past June at the Hollywood Fringe Festival with many rave reviews and won The Encore Producer’s Award. The show will be reprised as Halloween Special / variety show this coming October 2019 with the sequel A Very Merry Excuse To Behave Badly premiering in December of 2019.
