Every person who is called to be an artist has their own unique journey.  One very important shared element is the practice of being your own best friend. (Thank you Mark Twain). This practice can be brought about through a multiplicity of factors. What is most important is that you know who you are and what you like, yet remain open to other's ideas so that you can be a respectful collaborator in the process of making the work.

There are very few masters of the arts in this world, and it takes a very long time to become one.  So in the meantime, you can do yourself a huge favor by understanding what you are supposed to do when you are called to participate, then learn the tools to help you achieve those goals.

Together, we will uncover who you are and exactly where you are meant to be. Then we will begin the process of identifying the people you are meant to work with and begin to prepare you to be ready to reach out to them and eventually work with them.

Everything in life takes time. But the more prepared you are for the opportunity, the more you will be able to make the most out of it. It is my joy to help you with that preparation.

I have been fortunate to have worked and studied with some of the best in the business.

 

I began my career as a child actor working in Los Angeles with top directors like Herbert Ross (Pennies from Heaven, with Bernadette Peters), Richard Benjamin (My Favorite Year, with Peter O'Toole), Marvin Chomsky (Robert Kennedy and His Times with River Phoenix and Jason Bateman) and John Erman (Who Will Love My Children? with Ann-Margret and Frederick Forrest).

 

After moving to New York at 17 years old to pursue a deeper level of training, I spent eight years studying with Master Teacher Michael Howard, winning my first Emmy© at the age of 21 for my role of "Dixie" on All My Children.  There I worked with top directors Christopher Goutman (NYC Film and Television) and Casey Childs (of Primary Stages). While on the show I took workshops with some of the best teachers of the time including Curt Dempster of EST (Ensemble Studio Theatre), Kristin Linklater (The Linklater Institute), and the SITI Company (Suzuki/Viewpoints technique, run by Ann Bogart), as well as with Julia Cameron of "The Artist's Way," and have recently begun studying with the great acting teacher Larry Moss. 

 

I also studied Creative Arts Therapy at The New School, International Literature at NYU, and fine art painting at The School of Visual Arts (SVA) with Nancy Chunn.

Constantly seeking to evolve my understanding of what it means to be an actor/artist, I spent five years interviewing top directors like Lesli Linka Glatter, Bethany Rooney, Sarah Gavron, Kimberly Peirce and others for my documentary "Seeing is Believing: Women Direct," gaining incredible wisdom about the journey of being an artist.

I am excited to share all the techniques and tools I have learned to help you achieve the artistry and career you desire.
