Ellora DeCarlo has worked as an actor, singer, and producer in NYC for over 15 years. Growing up in the San Francisco Bay area, her early passion for the performing arts originated on stage as “a dancer who could act.” It wasn’t until she hit New York to train formally as an actor and singer that the producer card came calling.As a self- proclaimed organizational freak and bossy girl, it was an instantaneous fit.
President and CEO of Bossy Girl Productions, Wife, Mother, and Int'l Child Advocate are a shortlist of the titles she holds. Whether on stage, in front of the camera or behind the scenes as investor, producer, casting director, and location scout, this “Do it Yourself” and "Everybody Wins" girl is infused by the energy and talent of the good people of New York and inspired by the creative art of storytelling.
