People often ask me how I got from a design studio to a stage. One morning I read an article in the Times about a community theater group holding open auditions for RENT. Intrigued, I took a very deep breath, signed up and did something unimaginable: I sang for the first time in a room full of strangers.  Then I got cast.  Opening night was magic - I'd found a creative home and a whole new career.

I'm someone that's never halfway in so I went looking for teachers, and found mentors. In a way I've built my own "conservatory" through work with private coaches - vocal teachers who kick my butt; acting teachers who push me to stay open and honest; dance teachers who challenge me to be in my body. It's hard work and I'm loving every minute of it.

Since RENT I've been an activist doctor in THE NORMAL HEART, a Descamisado in EVITA, a German tourist in NINE, a sheriff in LARAMIE; I've sung off-Broadway in THE EVENTS and THE CHRISTIANS; done readings and plays and a solo cabaret. When I'm not auditioning or taking classes I write, paint, read voraciously, and travel. I speak Greek (long story!) and enough Spanish and German to get into trouble. This year I got the urge to learn tap - challenging, but mad fun! I'm up for just about anything. And yes, I love hats!
