My mother says I was an avid reader since the age of three. I don’t remember; but, she ought to know! She revels in memories of little knobby-kneed me singing the commercial for every item my eyes landed on in the grocery store. In between working as a convenience store clerk and earning my B.A. in Liberal Studies with a focus on Performance for Social Change, I devoured everything from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Kurt Vonnegut. I later tried my hand at being a columnist and writing the feature length political drama I have available for option. My taste for literature has turned to fantasy and historical fiction, romantic comedy and non-fiction. From badass straight-shooters to cozy moms, I adore giving voice to colorful characters of all varieties. Growing up in the mountains of northern New Mexico, I have since lived and loved in Los Angeles, New York, London and northern England before landing right back in my home state. I had a rollicking time off Broadway in the iconic Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding and earned my SAG card with a part on Curb your Enthusiasm. My podcast, “Ode to Kobe” is a paen to the athlete and the city who loved him. It’s available on Apple and Spotify. I’m an improv performer and a lover of reading astrological charts, working with crystals and interpreting tarot.
