It’s been quite a month so far, following April.
May 4th I had the lovely pleasure of doing a role in Brad Makarowski’s beautiful play WHY US? at The Tank. It was 10 hours rehearsing with blocking that helped him as a writer see his play on it’s feet and was a great exercise for us actors to see what a few moves can do in a very short time. Kudos to all! 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,
