I am a professional actress, writer, teacher, and acting coach based in New York City for over thirty years. I have appeared on Broadway, off-Broadway, in regional theatre, commercials, film, and television.
After graduating from Northwestern University, I had the good fortune to study acting with Uta Hagen, Shelley Winters, F. Murray Abraham, and Geraldine Page--some of the greatest actors of their time.
I am certified as a substitute teacher in the state of California. I have taught English to middle school and high school students as a sub in New York City private schools.
Other teaching and coaching experience includes: NYU, the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute NYC, NY Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, and David Kagen’s Film Acting School in Los Angeles. I taught and coached creative drama, on-camera, scene study, and audition technique at the Children’s Acting Academy in Manhattan for eleven years, to children ages 5-18. I also directed 3rd year Audition showcases at NYU.
Privately, I have coached actors and speakers at all levels: children trying out for Broadway, television and film; middle school students auditioning for LaGuardia High School and other NYC arts high schools; high school seniors auditioning for NYU, UCLA, etc; and adult actors prepping for professional auditions.
I strive to bring out the best in every student and know that each person is unique. I am patient, compassionate, and want your light to shine!
Thanks! I look forward to meeting you!
