Performer, Director

As a director, I have come to specialize in collaborating with performers on developing their original works. These artists include Julie Atlas Muz, Ed Hamell (winning the Herald Award at the Edinburgh Festival 2007), and the World Famous *BOB* among others. My first effort as a feature filmmaker, Rant and Roll, was completed in spring 2008.
As an actress, I am best known for my character-based comedy performances in the downtown NY scene, particularly the louche Austrian Mistress of Ceremonies character Miss Astrid.
As a producer, I am the creator of the seminal burlesque show The Va Va Voom Room 1997-2005 as well its emcee Miss Astrid. Besides having the first bicoastal burlesque show ever (running weekly in NYC and San Francisco), Miss Astrid and The Va Va Voom Room have performed all over Europe and the US including the annual productions of The New York Burlesque Festival and the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas.
