I WRITE AND DIRECT

I am a winner of the Humanitas/PLAY LA Prize, The Jane Chambers Award for Playwriting and a two-time Finalist for Center Theatre Group's Sherwood Award for boundary-pushing theatre artists. My debut screenplay starring A League of Their Own's Roberta Colindrez is making the film festival circuit worldwide. I welcome booking inquiries anytime.

I TEACH AND COACH

I founded Feminist Acting Class as a series of experiments to see if the form and content of an acting class can both be made feminist. It has been presented everywhere from the Association for Theatre in Higher Education Conference to Directors Lab West. I teach classes in LA and online, and lecture at universities nationwide. I also offer private acting and career coaching.

I CURATE PERFORMANCE

Active in the lesbian + queer nightlife scene for over 20 years, I currently throw a party called DIVORCE in Los Angeles, and curate live performance salons under the name SORORITY, a Los Angeles cult fave that has appeared at venues including the Hammer Museum and the Annenberg Community Beach House. SORORITY will be presented by MOCA in July 2023.
