Growing up in Sacramento, California, I loved my Cabbage Patch doll Abigail, Paul Newman, watching Golden Girls and Dallas with my mom.    Now I love being a New Yorker,  walking and wandering throughout the city.  New York has given me  opportunities that I never imagined for myself like being a personal shopper at Hermes or a dog-sitter for of an elderly diabetic pug named Lola and an audience wrangler in  Here Lies Love at the Public Theatre (I wore a hot pink jumpsuit and danced next to David Byrne!). I was in the longest running production of Our Town at the historic Greenwich House  and played a Sex and the City tour guide written by Aaron Sorkin.  I have created my own stories and shared them at The Moth, The Tank, A.R.T, NYU Langone, and Mile Square Theatre.   I've met remarkable people along the way.  A Red Tailed Hawk sighting is always a thrill. The sunshine breaking through the darkness of the tunnel when riding over the Manhattan Bridge on the Q train is too.
