Daryn is a writer/performer based in Chicago. She writes as a Features Contributor for The Onion, and earns her MFA in Writing for Screen + Stage from Northwestern University ('23). Her scripts have placed in ScreenCraft, WeScreenplay, and Filmmatic screenwriting contests!
A Second City Conservatory and iO Theater alumna, Daryn currently performs in many Chicago comedy shows, including Dick Wolf: Special Improv Unit and The Annoyance House Ensemble: Fire & Beer at Annoyance Theatre, and The After Dark Show at Lincoln Lodge. This December, Daryn will star as Holly in Yippee Ki-Yay, Merry Christmas: A Die Hard Musical Parody at Annoyance Theatre.
As an arts administrator, she has worked at the Tony Award-winning Goodman Theatre and Disney World, among other jobs that blend her passion for art with her affinity for tailored blazers!
In her spare time, Daryn plays board games with her roomies, watches Spanish period dramas, and plays "A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa Carlton on piano (because that's the only song she knows). She would love to connect with you on social media @daryn_2dream.
