The short form is this: I am an experienced, professional producer, director and acting coach. I have a record of success as a director both in Florida and Illinois, and a reputation as an “actor’s director,” with a collaborative approach to the work. Because I create a supportive and creatively fulfilling atmosphere for the actor, encouraging ensemble work with professional standards, the result is usually an artistically satisfying production, a happy cast and delighted audiences.
I have worked successfully with professional equity actors, experienced community theatre actors, and novices.
My personal style is warm, open, collaborative, enthusiastic, and professional. The actors who work with me universally describe their experience as “the best.” Theatres welcome me back on a regular basis.

The things I like most about the Sarasota/Manatee area
Everything...especially my home, my friends, the exciting arts community, and the wide variety of cultural opportunities. This is a magical place to live, surrounded by peace, love, elegant works of art, great food, interesting shops, and the beauty of nature wherever you look.
My Interests & Hobbies
Theater, always, and films, and art, and music and good books. I write short stories, and I paint when I have the time, watercolor, mixed media, acryllics.
I try to save my precious spare time to spend it with my loved ones.
Am a friend of Linda Mac. We are both Connecticut gals. I know she wanted to hook us up. She encouraged me to get involved in the Play Readers, is it called? Anyway, we know a lot of the same people. Love to connect. Will mention it to Linda when I speak with her.
Apologies for the delayed response.
I do sing, actually -- friends know me as a karaoke die-hard! -- but I'm not sure I would be able to find time for rehearsal. Your show sounds like a lot of fun, though. I look forward to catching it on opening night!
Hello Carole. Thank you very much for the suggestion. Unfortunately I'm tied up through the end of Fall working on "Amahl and the Night Visitors" at MCC; I'm playing Melchior as well as being in charge of designing and building the set and designing the lights. I also am starting to do more and more work with the Lake Osprey Village Cabaret, so my schedule has gotten pretty full. But I really appreciate you mentioning that to me; please come see "Amahl" when it opens in late November, I'd like to meet you and talk about things in the future. Thanks again!
