RECENT

Was delighted to have been asked to perform in the Irondale 25-Hour Shakespeare Sonnets (along with none-other than Ralph Fiennes!) in my very first Zoom performance during the pandemic.

Since then I have participated in a number of Zoom readings, and continue to act in Arlene Hutton's Master Class in Playwriting at the Barrow Group.

Am learning the ins-and-outs of self-taping...

My short play, Let's Not Talk About Men (published in Best Ten Minute Plays of 2010 by Smith & Krause) has been getting a number of college productions all over the country.

 

More About Me:
I've appeared at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 5 times, often in my own plays.

I was a singer for Concerts In Motions, performing folk songs, pop songs, and standards in nursing homes, hospitals, and for homebound elderly in their apartments all over New York City. I have had many moving and heartwarming experiences doing this work.

 

I was offered a residency at The 78th Street TheaterLab to develop my short piece, Trapeze, into a full-length play. It ultimately became Looking Up, which I performed in Edinburgh and at the Theater for the New City. It incorporated a fair bit of solo trapeze and some partner acrobatics. It also led to a lot of circus in my life!

As a fiction writer I was artist-in-residence at the Blue Mountain Center and the Millay Colony and have participated in Francis Ford Coppella's Zoetrope All-Story Writers Conference and the Breadloaf Writers Conference.
