I'm so happy you are visiting my website. I'm grateful I have been able to fulfill my dream of becoming a successful New York City actor. I have been in four Broadway shows (Happy End with Meryl Streep, Inherit the Wind with George C.Scott, Lettice and Lovage with Maggie Smith, and The Light in the Piazza.) I've also been in 10 movies, including Sister Act I and II with Whoopi Goldberg, God's Pocket with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kingpin with Woody Harrelson, and the new Coen Brothers movie, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs with James Franco.

I have written 12 plays, including six solo shows. My solo show about my hometown in Ohio, Bexley, OH! was produced at New York Theatre Workshop. My other solo shows are about women I admire: Harper Lee, Virginia Woolf, Miep Gies (who helped Anne Frank hide from the Nazis), Willa Cather, and Agatha Christie. I do these shows at colleges and theatres across the US. My Agatha Christie show is an interactive murder mystery. I performed it to sold-out houses last summer at 59E59th Street and The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
