ABOUT

My career began as a professional radio announcer. Upon graduating Emerson College I worked for major stations in Boston, NY and NJ. I earned acclaim in the world of bluegrass and country music for my show on WFDU-FM, heard worldwide on WAMU. As lead singer and rhythm guitarist, I fronted my own band and played festivals and concerts throughout the NY Tri-State region.

But I wanted to be an actress, so I took a full-time job with Major League Baseball (MLB.com) and returned to school nights and weekends to study acting. I graduated from the William Esper Studios and also studied at the Atlantic Theater School and did improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade.

I made my Carnegie Hall debut and shortly after landed the role of Yente, the matchmaker in the First North American National Tour of "Fiddler on the Roof". Working with Tony-winning Director Bartlett Sher, Musical Director Ted Sperling and the Broadway Creative Team, traveling across the country, playing landmark theaters to sold-out standing ovations while visiting major historic sites, museums and national parks for a year and a half (492 shows) is a highlight of my career.

My husband is musician Wayne Fugate, a mandolin player and guitarist who performed in the band of Steve Martin and Edie Brickell's show "Bright Star" on Broadway and the Equity National Tour. He arranged and performed the music for the internationally acclaimed film "A Bread Factory" starring Tyne Daley and Janeane Garofalo, written and directed by Patrick Wang.

We live just north of New York City with our gray cat Smudgey.

I'm managed by Bobby Holder, Bright Artists Management (BAM).
