A bit about me:
I am an actress/director/producer/animal lover and mom. My passion is telling stories. In life, I’m always interested to see what happens next.
I am probably best recognized for my role in Bob Fosse’s Oscar winning film, All That Jazz. You’ve seen me on TV in ER, Grey’s Anatomy, Monk, and Criminal Minds, among others... and in films such as Living Out Loud, Infestation, and Nuclear Family.
I’ve loved acting ever since the age of five when I filled in for the little boy who got the measles on opening night of the Caucasian Chalk Circle at Carnegie Mellon, and I got to eat cookies, swing a sword, and say lines. And at the end everyone applauded for me! (What could be better?!) Later engagements included 2 ½ years on Broadway in the original run of A Chorus Line, the Broadway revival of Pal Joey and Accomplice at the Pasadena Playhouse.
After a break to raise two bizarre, sweet and fascinating daughters, I returned to acting full time and also started writing, directing, and producing. I find directing very relaxing. After living with teenagers, it’s refreshing to have people actually listen to me.
I’ve written and produced three award winning short films to date, and directed three plays that got rave reviews. The last was chosen for Best Of Fringe in last summer’s Hollywood Fringe Festival.
The most delightful thing about my journey has been the people I’ve been blessed to meet and work with. I’m looking forward to telling more stories and meeting new, inspiring, funny, talented people.
