I've lived in several cities across the United States -- grew up in North Dakota, went to
undergraduate school in Fargo (NDSU), then left for graduate school in southern Illinois,
followed by more graduate school in Boca Raton, Florida. I lived in the Miami area,
the Milwaukee area, Dallas, and San Francisco, where I was for 21-plus years
until I moved to New York. I'd wanted to live in NYC my whole life,
and as much as I love SF, I knew it was time to make the move, which I did in 2009.
In college, I studied languages and literature, and in graduate school, I studied linguistics.
I specialized in phonetics, by the way, and I'm great at learning accents ... fast.
I try not to sweat the small stuff, and I try to live by these words of Dame Judi Dench:
"I think you should take your job seriously, but not yourself."
My skills and credits are below. If you'd like to contact me regarding auditioning,
I'd love to hear from you. Just go to my Contact page and send me an email.
