Currently featured in the pilot "Cafone" starring James Ciccione, and in the Indie Film circuit, recently won BEST ACTRESS for the starring role of Director Andrew Schwarz's latest film "Beauty". (His last film premiered at Academy affiliated Nashville Film Festival.). And stoked to be cast as Anna Konda in the upcoming comedy feature "Everybody Loves Dick" based on the behind the scenes antics of the 1980's Aerobics industry.
I've been lucky to have worked with such stars as Tim Conway, and Tom Poston in"The Odd Couple", Samantha Eggar and Shani Wallis in "Mame", Carl Reiner in a workshop of his short plays, Rob Corddry doing sketch comedy in "Third Rail Comedy" and Judd Hirsch in the web series "Small Miracles."
As an Ex-Radio City Rockette, I'm proud to have not only danced on the Great Stage, but to have written and performed 21 original characters in the critically acclaimed Off Broadway solo show about my experiences at the Music Hall, called KICKING & SCREAMING, The Musical!. "Only an Ex-Rockette can tell you what it's like behind the kickine."
And I'm a real life overworked overburdened Super Mom of two boys and a writer/producer.
