A little about me...

Hello there! My name is Maya Shoham, I’m an Israeli-Aussie actress, writer, producer, baker, and wine enthusiast who currently lives in New York City. The art I aspire to do will be thought-provoking, out-of-the-ordinary, and unique. I want to tell stories that make people feel, or think, or do. Or… all of the above.

I like having existential conversations over a glass of red wine and french fries. I find joy in having people over for dinner in my tiny crown heights apartment. My challah bread is the best you’ll ever try, and you’re welcome to pick me up on this.

Some of my credits include starring in the Off-Broadway plays "Best Friends", "The Holylanders", and most recently, co-producing, co-writing, and starring in "The Ultimate Manic Pixie Dream Girl Speed-Dating Competition" as part of the SoHo Playhouse Lighthouse Series.
