"An actor is part illusionist,
part artist, part ham."
I began acting in first grade in upstate New York. The love of theater has been with me through college and my adult life. I've had the honor of working with companies on both coasts and owned my own theatre for ten years in California. I'm a non union actor who has focused primarily on straight plays (comedy and drama) and worked with many professional level community theatres in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and, for the last 21 years, California. I closed my theatre and moved to Twain Harte in December 2019, right before the pandemic forced every theatre to go dark. So here I am...excited to meet new companies and get my foot in the door!
I opened Limelight Actors Theater in January 2011. Over the course of 45 plays, 5 musicals and 2 cabaret runs, the theater was honored with "Best Theater South County" and "Best Theater Gilroy" awards every year. In 2018 we were a Theatre Bay Area Awards Nominee (San Francisco) in three categories. Best Actress, Best Director and Best Production of "The Last 5 Years". We were also a TBA Recommended Production for "The Velocity of Autumn" in 2019. (A show I directed and starred in). I closed the theater in December 2019, and moved to the mountains full time with my husband, Alan, and German Shepard, Bodhi.
I act primarily on stage, but have done a few small film and PSA projects. My experience has focused on non musical plays, both comedic and dramatic.
I'd love to talk to you about opportunities onstage and off. I was an Executive Director of an Art Center for ten years, and have served on several boards in the Arts World. During the years I owned my theater, I was a one man show wearing many hats. Artistic Director, Marketing Manager, Set Designer, House Manger, Director, Actor, Janitor and everything in between.
Do you have more questions? Are you interested in collaborating on a project? Send me a message, and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Thank you!
