aka my own creations



Specializing in film, Shakespeare, musicals, physical theatre, and comedy, I bring specificity, joy, and humanity to the screen and stage, no matter how heightened the form nor how corny the genre.

Starting at $500


The page is the perfect medium for versatility, empathy, humor, and just a touch of the supernatural. I write these virtues in every genre: fiction, criticism, scripts for stage and screen, essays…Oh, not every genre. I save the bad poetry for my diary. You can’t read that ;)

Starting at $200



Look, I’m pretty cool: I’ve been acting since I could speak. Trained in classical acting and musical theatre, I work in all genres and all mediums. Whether it’s the honesty and subtlety of on-camera performance, the nuance of voiceover and radio, or the full-body expression of live theatre, I bring intelligence, empathy, and dedication to every role I play.


She’s small and out of your price range: MINNIE BARRE!

My burlesque alter-ego Minnie brings her spunky, sparkly striptease to stages around the great city of Chicago. From coquettish and classical to neo and nerdy, Minnie prances across all genres with her signature blend of geek, chic, and cheek!
