I'm a 40 (something) actress, and singer on a life long adventure of navigating the business of acting, the business of single motherhood, and the "business" of everyday life. I've been performing, writing, producing, and directing in one form or another since I was a small child. I have a BFA in Theatre from Niagara University and I am currently based in Arizona. I also host a new podcast for actors (lovingly inspired by IAP) called Living the Dream Acting (available on iTunes) which features artists living in all parts of the country who are trying to live their Artistic Dreams. You can find out more about me, my inspirations, and the podcast by going to www.LivingtheDreamActing.com.
