After receiving a BFA in the Performing Arts at Montclair State University, this Jersey girl went on to a yearlong acting Apprenticeship program with Actors Theatre of Louisville, in Kentucky. I then completed her graduate studies at Harvard University, in a conservatory program with The American Repertory Theatre Company. Pounding the pavement from New York City to Los Angeles for 20+ years was an invigorating adventure and a school of absolute inspiration.
I officially started writing in 2003 and have penned 17 titles including two full-length plays, many one-acts, a handful of ten-minute plays, and my first novel (read the first chapter here). All of my writing is somewhat inspirational or meaningful (under all the drama) and illuminates the human condition with hopes my stories will inspire someone to a better life.
Along with my performing arts training and script analysis studies, I studied playwriting at UCLA Extension, playwriting and advanced playwriting, and creative writing at the Lighthouse Creative Writing Workshop in Denver. Many of my plays have been produced, workshopped, or have received a professional staged reading in various cities.
I’m an artist… an actor, multiple award-winning playwright, a novelist, a professional theatre director, acting coach for actors and entrepreneurs, and have performed in over 100 stage plays, numerous commercials, TV shows, and independent films.
I live, love, and create by the Rocky Mountains in Denver, Colorado.
