I am inspired by everything that happens around me.  I love storytelling and I see stories in everything that touches my life.

The plays that changed my life were written by Tennessee Williams and Shakespeare.  I was in Junior High School when I was introduced to these plays, and I’ve been a rabid fan ever since.  In fact, playing Amanda in GLASS MENAGERIE at the wise old age of 15 helped me realize that I HAD to be in the theater for the rest of my life (saying the lines “deception, deception, deception” was one of the most divine moments of my young life).

I dream of having an infinite amount of resources to create my own work whenever and wherever I want.  Bliss!

I feel most like myself when I sing.

My best escape is walking alone in the woods and listening to the sounds of the wind moving through the trees.

The thing nobody knows about me will remain a secret for now….
