I’m a writer, an actor, and a mom. Originally from New York (I’m a Long Island girl), I’m now proud to call Los Angeles my adopted city. My latest one-woman show, UNDER THE JELLO MOLD, premiered at the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival where it won Best Solo Performance and Producer’s Encore awards and was named ‘Pick of the Fringe’, as well as earning a nomination for Top Of The Fringe (the only solo show to do so). I developed the show into a screenplay, which was a semi-finalist in the Diverse Voices Screenwriting Contest, and a second-rounder in the Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition. My first one-woman show, YOU MUTHA! A ONE-MOTHER SHOW, ran for two years in Los Angeles and was featured in the 2005 N.Y. Fringe Festival. You can see me on screen in the films GLORIA BELL, SPINNING MAN, and LEGEND OF THE MUSE, or on episodes of GAMES PEOPLE PLAY (BET), I'M DYING UP HERE (Showtime), ONE DAY AT A TIME (Netflix), GREY'S ANATOMEY:B-TEAM (ABC.com) and THE MIDDLE (ABC). Or you may catch me on late-night re-runs of HEROES, WITHOUT A TRACE, THE BERNIE MAC SHOW, MY NAME IS EARL, WILL AND GRACE, and BECKER. I’ve done a ton of Los Angeles theatre and wrote and directed my own short film, BREAK. I’m also the writer/co-star (with Tippi Hedren) of the short TEA WITH GRANDMA. When not doing artsy-stuff, I’m probably spending time with my family: my husband Jonathan, my sons, Harry and Sammy, and our two little mutts.
