I grew up in the remote woods of the PNW (but, you know, we had a house). As an actor, I’ve lived in LA and NYC but finally gave up my gypsy days calling Portland my home since 2007. I’m an actor, a writer, a producer, a storytelling for the stage teacher and I’m on the boards of the 21ten theater. One time I auditioned to play Mark Wahlberg's wife in a big movie but the night before I got a budget haircut and ended up with a not-cool mullet. Suffice to say, an Italian model got the part, not me. I welcome any inquires about my storytelling teaching series and whether or not you should get bangs -- I'm an expert in both!

MORE ABOUT ME
Most gratifying moment in theater? Playing Ben Affleck last Summer in Matt & Ben. Play/production that changed my life? Adrienne Truscott's "Asking For It": look it up (it's too ribald to talk about here) but it was gutsy, mind-blowingly brave and performed expertly. I want Artistic Directors to stop casting the same people, to take a chance on the unassuming, un-pedigreed women who've been quietly working for years without a big splashy graphic designer or PR team behind their name.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON
Warner Brothers had exclusivity last year on my TV Pilot but I'm still shopping it around; a play starring two famous female poets; I'm producing and acting in shows at The 21ten Theater and I'm trying not to have personal meltdowns every time I hear a leaf blower.
