It all comes down to
I’m a multimedia creative who blends my visual and performance art, producing and writing skills to create experiences to entertain others. Some of my creative explorations certainly were part of a healing journey with PTSD that stems from time in foster homes as a child and experience with multiple types of abuse. Since then, I’ve dedicated my life to pursuing storytelling “by page” and “by stage.”
My stand-up comedy and acting have afforded me minor awards and many great experiences like performing on Broadway during the Lisa Lampanelli show or sharing the screen with Nora Dunn, wrestler Al Snow or other notables.
My video and media production experience includes working on network productions like “Dead Files,” “American Idol,” and “Investigation Discovery” as well as many others. I’ve worked for hire in various roles for projects seen on Syfy, Espn, Discovery, ABC, HGTV and Travel Channel in addition to freelance work for clients across the globe.
I’ve also rolled all my talents into interactive visual and performance art installations that sometimes utilize technologies like augmented reality or projection mapping.
My leadership experience includes creating and directing programs for disadvantaged youth, media and technology projects, and serving as Editor-in-Chief for publications like Food & Dining Magazine. Over the last 20 years, my writing has been seen in stage shows, interactive exhibits, on screen and in published articles and short stories. My slate of original TV pilots and other projects with strong leading females have been awarded several grants and landed me in the finals for Sundance Episodic Labs, and Imagine Impact Accelerator for Ron Howard and the semi-finals for the Disney/ABC fellowship.
