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 a year I began major multi-tasking; opened a management company (Madcap Management) repping no more than 10 actors for the better part of eight years, was assistant to the head of domestic distribution @ Miramax for two years, was encouraged by a casting associate to open a workshop company (owned/operated) 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, and directed and produced numerous plays.
I set out to learn and I did – a lot! Though I wound up doing for others what I wished folks were doing for me it was extremely rewarding. My hard work was often acknowledged and I gained the respect of the industry and my peers. I even received offers to be: a show runner @ USA, an agent @ Epstein/Wyckoff, a marketing executive @ Miramax, continue casting, expand my workshop company with other CD’s and agents… All of which I declined.
Having experienced so much, I fortunately have the clarity to know what I want to be when I grow up. I love entertaining! And as life would have it – I learn more with each role I’m privileged to play.
Oh and my survival job – the best! Health really does exist in the mind, body & soul. I work hard to live by example.
As the journey continues, I look forward to sharing much of it with you…
