The June tide is ongoing into July and we are making lovely progress with ALL CATHERINE. My fantastic cast: Lucy McMichael, Stephanie Stone, Paula Galloway, Kathleen Moore and Matthew Menendez are loving having the luxury of many weeks till curtain. When does that ever happen??? It’s such fun to meet and read and see the characters develop and grow. No stress, just exploration. Plus hearing the script read this way lets me know it’s working. Read More...

Here's just a bit about me that isn't on my resume.
I'm originally from San Francisco and studied ballet with the San Francisco Ballet under Harold Christensen. I made it into the Ballet Department at the University of Utah in addition to being a Theatre Major, but gave up hopes of any serious ballet career because I didn't quite have the right feet and I preferred talking!
After getting my MFA from the Asolo Theatre in Sarasota Florida, where I studied with Neal Kenyon who directed the original Dames At Sea, I headed to New York. Then to Los Angeles where I did sit coms like Cheers, studied with the incredible Salome Jens, but my heart has always been here in Gotham, so I came home.
I love horses. Seriously love them. I have one too. My Mom was a beautiful rider and as a kid I remember watching her ride in horse shows in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. I'm ever so grateful to be able to keep riding and know how very lucky I am to do so.
I'm writing plays now, and have had a bit of success with that. I plan to continue. I think it does help to know what works on the page as an actor, and I enjoy creating a world that people want to inhabit. I also started coaching because I have an idea what actors go through, and we all need an outside eye that's positive.
I love living in New York.
That's about it. Thanks for visiting my website!
All the best,
