I have been drawing, painting and creating artwork for as long as I can remember. With the loving encouragement of my parents, siblings, teachers, and friends, my talent eventually took me to the University of Minnesota, where I studied graphic arts, set and costume design, and acting. After graduating with a BA in Theater Arts, I went on to the Yale School of Drama, where I received an MFA in acting. In my 20 year career as a professional actor in New York City, I appeared in the original Broadway productions of ANGELS IN AMERICA, SEX and LONGING, A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD, in addition to several film and television roles, and regional theaters throughout the country. Currently, I teach acting and movement at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.
