Actor, painter, tie dye extraordinaire.
As a filmmaker, Bechem aims to unite the broken bonds of humanity by showcasing ways we are similar rather than focusing on our differences. She began showbiz as an actor, studying with Terry Knickerbocker at the William Esper Studio, before turning to comedy when she managed Stone Cold Fox, a sketch team based out of the Upright Citizen’s Brigade. After three years producing other people’s funny ideas, she created the web series Joke Bar: our jokes may stink but our desperation wreaks which combined the dramatic ridiculousness of the comedy scene with the hardships of bartending. In 2018 Bechem filmed her first short, Change Machine, a 2 minute film showcasing the many ways a woman changes physically, emotionally & spiritually within one day. Bechem is known for laughing while working, progressive ideation, and wearing tie dye
"The Jersey Devil Doesn't Exist" opens with four teens playing tag in the woods but only three make it home. Bechem played the small town Detective and the Mom of the missing teenager. Proceeds from the play were donated to the Girls Club of the lower east side.
