"Every true artist has had real, direct, and immediate contact with the beauty of the world, contact that is of the nature of a sacrament."
- Simone Weil
Stuff I've done along the way...
I am an actress, singer, and voice over artist based in New York City and Woodstock, NY. Originally from Pittsburgh, PA I hold a BFA in theatre and music from Carnegie-Mellon University.
I've worked around the world, from New York City to Toyko, from Times Square Broadway to regional theatre, from nightclubs to cabaret rooms. I was seen in the critically acclaimed Broadway National of Madison Square Gardens production of CINDERELLA (starring Eartha Kitt) as Evil Stepsister Joy. My Off -Broadway credits include STREAKIN' as both Angela and Assist. Dir. and Jennifer Pierce in TUSK in the NYMF Festival. Other NYC credits include GRAVE CONCERNS at Genesius Theatre Guild.
I've starred in leading and principle roles in regional theatres across the country, including Judy in BUBBLING BROWN SUGAR at The Walnut Street Theatre, directed by the legendary Billy Wilson, Adelaide in GUYS AND DOLLS at Alabama Shakespeare Festival, Eva in EVITA and Mrs. Walker in TOMMY at the Byham Theatre in Pittsburgh, Mona Kent in DAMES AT SEA and Lucille in Joh Patrick Shanley's PSYCHOPATHIA SEXUALIS at the Public Theatre of Maine. I've been a soloist at StageWest in SOME ENCHANTED EVENING, at Capital Reperatory, Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, aboard cruise ships internationally, and in her cabaret performances in the clubs of NYC and across the country.
My guest artist appearances in summer stock include Adelaide in GUYS AND DOLLS, Lola in DAMN YANKEES, and Bianca in KISS ME KATE at Park Playhouse in Albany, NY and Aldonza in MAN of LA MANCHA and in the world premiere of HE WHO GETS SLAPPED from the award winning creative team of Ray Sipherd and Arthur B. Rubinstein at Hubbard Hall in Cambridge, NY.
Other touring credits include the northeast tours of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, starring first Wilford Brimley and later, legendary John Astin as Scrooge.
I can be seen in - and my distinct voice can be heard on - both radio and television commercials and in books on CD. I am a proud member of AEA and SAG/AFTRA.
