I tell stories. I sing songs. If you like,
I'll play the accordion.
Originally from Northern California, I spent my glorious undergrad career at Santa Clara University and jumped straight into a performing career as soon as I could, the summer after my freshman year. I’ve been living in NYC for 27 years and I’m married to the actor and my long-time best friend Andy Paterson. Before COVID I was onstage in the Rep Company at the Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota Florida and continue to be a remote teaching artist for that organization. I have toured the world, most recently with the Original First National Tour of “Once, the Musical” which I have subsequently performed in other theatres, and look forward to doing again. I play multiple instruments, mainly guitar and accordion, but also fiddle, piano and clarinet, and although acting is really my first love, I’m what you’d call an actor-musician. It is important to me above all to make human contact a pleasant experience, and collaboration a priority. Andy and I both remain in New York City, masked, and trying to help our community in any way we can. Although I can’t wait to get back to theatre work, I find the work of being a citizen of this great nation a full time job, and one that I’m proud to do. Peace.
