A little about me
I'm a journalist, columnist and contributor to Arizona Jewish Life Magazine and the Edmonds Beacon.
I'm an actor and spokesperson and spent a few years hosting my own talk show on KFI radio in Los Angeles.
My blog, Unmotherly Insights, offers parents a humorous, self-reflective talk on motherhood that delves deeply into the issues facing parents today.
A number of my short plays have been produced at festivals and theaters across the county. My full-length plays The Happiest Place on Earth, With Friends Like These, and the Chihuahua I and II, Unmotherly Insights into Modern Mothering... have enjoyed fully produced runs at The Herberger Theatre Center's Lunchtime Theater in Phoenix, AZ. My play Twist of the Magi received critical acclaim in its world premier at Theatre Artists Studio in Phoenix, AZ and was a sell-out hit last holiday season at the Phoenix Theatre in Edmonds, WA.
I'm a member of the Dramatist's Guild of America (DGA) and three of my plays have been selected for presentation in the DGA's New Works Festival. I've starred in many professional theatre productions around the country and today I'm continuing my pursuit of work in film, television, and theatre.

"Ecrire et en acte d'amour"
To write is an act of love
Everyone can write. It's a fallacy to believe that being gifted with words is some kind of DNA related trait. The only thing that stops people from being great writers is their belief that they, for whatever reason, aren't great writers.
