First and foremost I’m an actress and a native New Yorker.
I started my career in theatre along the East Coast, then moved to LA to expand into the television and film markets, all the while staying on stage. Within six months I began major multi-tasking; opened Madcap Management representing no more than 10 actors for the better part of eight years, was assistant to the head of domestic distribution @ Miramax for two years, owned/facilitated ws company - Show & Tell: "Workshops for the Professional Actor" for five years, worked as a casting assistant/paid reader for: Jean Scoccimarro, Michael Greer, Jeff Passero, Renita Whited, Aaron Griffith, and Vicki Huff. Have taught film & television acting techniques, directed and produced numerous plays.
I wanted to experience all the workings of the industry. I also wanted to bring the best of my experiences to others. In the process I gained the respect of the industry and my peers.
I was generously offered more work: six figures to start agenting with Epstein/Wyckoff, a show-runner position @ USA, two year marketing contract @ Miramax, more casting work, directing, and to expand my workshop company with other CDs and agents… All of which I declined.
Been written up (full page articles) for almost every endeavor in: Backstage, LA Times, Hollywood Reporter, won several awards for my stage & film work, with honorable mentions/reviews in other local papers and online…
I have enjoyed so much of what I’ve done, so many folks along the way, and am so fortunate to have choices; every single day I choose - entertaining! As life would have it – I learn more with each role I’m privileged to play, even for five minutes .
As the journey continues, I look forward to sharing much of it with you, please stay tuned – there is more to come…
