Actor / Writer / Educator
Carolyn Cutillo is a NYC-based actor. Hailing from Scranton, PA (yes, like "The Office"), Carolyn earned her BFA from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, with training from Playwrights Horizons Theater School, the Experimental Theater Wing, and Stonestreet Screen Acting Studios-- so she is equally comfortable on stage and screen, and especially enjoys collaborating on new work. She once served as Company Manager of Boxed Wine Productions, which she had co-founded with her friends at NYU. Carolyn went on to train at UCB and The Magnet in improv and sketch writing, respectively. She has performed in such far-flung places as Edinburgh, India, and Nebraska, and recently earned her Actors Equity membership card playing soccer onstage in "The Wolves" at TheaterWorks Hartford.
Deeply involved in the field of positive psychology, Carolyn is back at NYU as Head T.A. of "The Science of Happiness," the most popular undergraduate elective there. Having taught for the past several years, and finding the spreading well-being topics to be a passion and a calling, she decided to share her knowledge with the world in the form of a YouTube series called "How Happiness Happens," which she wrote, directed, produced, and starred in. Look for season one hitting the internet soon!
Carolyn has pink hair at the moment, which she finds to be like "a party on her head." Still passing as a teenager, she typically enjoys portraying teen angst or bubbly college-aged roles in both stage and screen. She is proud momma of a cat named Marvin.
