Thank you for visiting my website. I have had several websites in the past, but this one is very special to me. It encompasses the various parts of my professional and creative life that I want to share with you.
I have been a musician most of my life. I began writing songs, dancing, singing, and acting in my early childhood. Throughout my life, I took several journeys, both professional and personal, that introduced me to other enriching aspects to my world, as it does for all of us.
My career as a Foley artist has been such a large part of my life that I can hardly recall when I was not on a Foley stage, in an editing room, or at the rerecording stage. Film is a major area of my expertise and has never left my heart. My spiritual path has been consistent and personal, and led to adding M.Div. to my moniker. My intellectual curiosity pushed me toward the world of the Ph.D. and higher education, although my love of teaching started at 23, when I became an Artist-in-the-Schools in Glendale, California.
The term "performative" refers to any action taken specifically with an audience in mind, to elicit a response or reaction. This applies to all of my professional endeavors: singing, acting, Foley art, teaching, and even writing.
I now present myself, as a mature woman, with a lifetime of character-testing experiences, and the art that evolves from those experiences. You may navigate to the music page, the theatre page, the film page, the pedagogy page, and the media page. The Venn Diagram of my life is obvious throughout, and I hope you will take some time to “get to know me” through these channels. I welcome your comments, and of course, you can connect with me on social media, which invites further contact.
I believe websites should be a form of relationship and communication. Yes, I want to promote my work. I also want to engage with you in various ways, so please keep that in mind as you peruse this site.
