Happy Fall! It’s been quite something to keep all the balls in the air, so to speak, and a lot of fun.
ALL CATHERINE went on for its performances in the 2019 Summerfest Festival with good audiences and wonderful work by each cast member. I’m so very happy and proud of everyone involved. The actors: Lucy McMichael, Stephanie Stone, Kathleen Moore, Paula Galloway and Matthew Menendez, each gave such individuality and flair to their roles. Our composer, Frank J Oteri created music that was not only was perfect, but gave the smoothest transitions from scene to scene, which helped the overall aura of the play. Our stage manager Francis Timberlake was a steady rock. The perfect person you need to keep everyone on track and calm. The Hudson Guild Theatre is a lovely place to work. My only sorrow was we had so few performances, but things are still cooking, so stay tuned. 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,
