According to my mother I have been performing since birth; arriving with a head full of hair, two front teeth, screaming at the top of my lungs, and  "eyes full of water".

Born in Morocco, Africa into a military family, my family moved every two years until I was a teenager.  We settled in San Diego, CA where I spent my formative years.  In Junior High School I took a puppetry, then a Reader's Theatre class and soon became hooked on theatre.  Throughout high school I became very active in community service, student government, and drama.


After graduation I sang and danced with a group called Up With People.  We toured throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, and Europe.  When I arrived back to the states I was awarded a scholarship to study dance at US International University in San Diego.  It wasn't long though, before I was impatient to pursue my career in acting. 


I dropped out and ran away to L.A. with $50, my suitcase and my parent's car. I enrolled in an intensive Musical Theatre  program at the Music Center.  I delivered lunches to stock traders in L.A. in the morning to pay for rent and attended classes at night. At the end of the program a casting director saw me.  I auditioned for and got my first L.A. gig in a production of "Little Shop of Horrors" at La Mirada Theatre and got my Actor's Equity card.  A year later I joined AFTRA, then eventually SAG and started auditioning for TV.


It has been a wonderful circuitous career as a journeyman actor, performing mostly in regional theatre, doing straight plays, classical, and musical theatre, commercial work, television, a handful of films, voice-over, and most recently teaching. I've even done a little writing and have had awards and productions of my shows.


However, my most rewarding experience was traveling to Bangladesh with my husband, visual artist Peter Zokosky, to teach a summer arts program at The Asian University for Women.  I taught an introduction to acting and directed a production of Medea. 

And the blessings continue.
