Guyanese-born writer and classically trained actress.

Ingrid has been in theatrical productions in and around New York City. Some of her favorite roles were playing Lady Reveller in the 18th century play, The Basset Table, by Susanna Centlivre, Mrs. Muller in John Patrick Shanley's "Doubt", Hedda Gabler in Henrik Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler" and various characters in Eve Ensler's "Vagina Monologues".

The classically trained actress has had a busy eighteen months. In May, 2013, she brought audiences out of their seats at the center stage at the Southampton Cultural Center in a supporting role in “Buckingham”, a period piece by Tina Andrews about slavery and African bloodlines in British royalty and in June 2013, she performed excerpts from “Demerara Gold” at Soho Playhouse as an opening act for Debra Ehrhardt’s popular “Jamaica Farewell”.

This April, she drew raves for her performance at the John Jay Black Box Theater as Mama Nadi, the lead character in “Ruined”, a play by Lynn Nottage about brothel women in war-torn Congo.
