Friend(s)!


I apologize unreservedly for being so MIA over these last six (okay, more like nine) months. There’s been a LOT going on … case in point: I bought me a condo! Yup, I’m a homeowner now (escrow closed just before Christmas) and it’s just as insane as everyone said it’d be. But I’m super happy and feeling very adept at adulting. As David Rose recently explained on Schitt’s Creek (my current TV obsession), “Mama Oprah would be very proud.”


As far as theatre goes, I wrapped up the end of 2016 by producing a stellar 5-week skit for Conejo Players Theatre (“SIDE SHOW”); performed in a holiday fundraiser for Paw Works in Thousand Oaks; and … oh yeah, I won an award. Yours truly was given the “Outstanding Lead Performance - Female” award from the Four Star Theater Alliance in Ventura County, for my performance in Elite Theatre Company’s “I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE”! I’m quite proud. I recently performed at the awards gala, and much fun was had.


I’m not currently in a show -- which is probably good so I can continue to get used to home-ownership -- but there are some auditions coming up and I’ve got fingers ‘n’ toes crossed. And on the work front, things are as busy as ever at the House of Mouse … although my proverbial door is always open to different new possibilities. Got somethin’ writer-y or marketing-ish you’d like to chat with me about? Give a holler!


Hope all is well in your neck of the woods … xox

Hiya, various and sundry blog-viewer types!


I’ve been extra-busy lately, so forgive the lack of news here on the ol’ website. Doing lots of writing for the House of Mouse and also in rehearsals for a show …


Speaking of which, that show opens THIS WEEKEND (Friday, February 26) and runs through March 26 – it’s “I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE,” and it’s at the Elite Theatre Company in Oxnard, CA. (It’s a bit of a commute, yes -- but it’s a cool location right on the Channel Islands harbor.) I was lucky enough to co-star as “Woman 1” when the Elite first did this long-running Off-Broadway musical back in ’08 … and now, I’m getting the chance to sink my teeth into “Woman 2” with an entirely different cast! It’s been a fun ride, and I’m looking forward to unleashing the hilarity onto an unsuspecting Ventura County audience.


(Oh, and don’t forget: I’m still interested in theatrical, commercial, and VO representation in Los Angeles. Are you an agent? Looking for as-yet-untapped “character actress” triple[ish]-threat talent with a side of snark and lunacy? Hit me up!)


There are some fun auditions on the horizon -- hopefully at theatres that are a little easier to access. ;) Stay tuned …
