After working with the company, Actors Where Are You Going, I discovered I particularly excel with characters who have been touched by literal or metaphoric death. Examples of characters I've played who were shaped by death include, Mrs. Surratt in The Trial of Mrs Surratt (first woman executed for being a Lincoln conspirator. Emma Cunningham from The Bloody Deed of 1857, Aline Solness from Ibsen's Masterbuilder, Sally from Elegies for Angels, Punks, and Raging Queens, Rapunzel from Into the Woods, and Agnetha from the play Frozen. My favorite character, Eliza Doolittle experienced metaphoric death in My Fair Lady. After studying with the internationally renown Shakespeare expert, Rob Clare, I've enjoyed playing Gertrude and dying at the end of Hamlet

My niche is DEATH
I consider myself a late bloomer. At the age 39, I became the oldest undergraduate studying musical theater performance at The Boston Conservatory. Three years later I graduated Magna Cum Laude and gave the commencement speech. Age didn't stop from then completing the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art's Summer Shakespeare program. I continue to study my craft and remain young at heart as I chase my dreams.
