Betsy is the co-creator and producer of Accomplice. In 2004, she and her brother Tom conceived of the Accomplice concept after being on a walking tour of the Lower East Side. As a child, Betsy loved scavenger hunts and knew that the mystery of surprise and intrigue, often lost in adulthood, was a great concept to build on for entertainment. Betsy is eternally grateful for the talented improvisational actors and hard-working crew that have made Accomplice a reality.
