Naomi holds the distinguished honor of playing the first crossover character, the fan-favorite “Pepper” on FX’s hit anthology series, American Horror Story: Asylum & Freak Show. Entertainment Weekly called her being cast “The Best of 2012,” and the Television Academy considered her for an Emmy in 2015. IMDb named her one of 2014’s “Top 10 Breakout Stars” after her STARmeter skyrocketed to #1, making her the most searched in its 8 million person database. Fans may also recognize her from cameos in the feature films: Table for Three, The Chair, Sky Sharks, Short Straw, Bite Me, An Accidental Zombie (Named Ted), and Fear, Inc. Nominated for an LA Weekly Theater Award for “Best Solo Performance,” Naomi has written, produced, and performed several one-woman shows, which have enjoyed twice-extended, sold-out runs and rave reviews in LA, Scotland’s world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Theatre Festival, London’s West End, and Off-Off Broadway. Her numerous self-penned and produced, comedic shorts have screened at nationwide film festivals and are available for view on comedy sites like FunnyOrDie.
