"2 parts: Helen Hunt's gravitas. Equal parts: Debra Messing's feisty/Molly Shannon's spark. Baked at 98.5 degrees until slightly pink and very fluffy. Serve immediately."

Hello! I've been a 'character' all my life. From playing every mother/ grandmother role in college to filling my resume with many of Shakespeare's maids, nurses and other servant-types, my acting career has been all character all the time. Finally, I am actually the age of many characters I played in my early days, but now have the life experience to back it up. I not only studied improvisation with The Second in Chicago, but have been a faculty member for over 7 years, teaching improv and sketch comedy writing. Since moving from Chicago to Los Angeles, I've studied with Lesly Kahn & Co, The Actors' Gang and at Alex D'Lerma's Cinema Gym. I have great comedic timing and gravitas. Not a bad combination.
