Although I am originally from England, I was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. The youngest of four (four very different, very big hearted genius/fools), I was lucky to get a word in at the dinner table. I’m not complaining though, frankly I gobbled up whatever ludicrous daily account my siblings were telling. My appreciation for a good story has never left me. I went to a Catholic high school, and we would volunteer at an Intercommunal School. While the daycare was in a modest schoolhouse, the kids would fill it with their wild imaginations. We would be completely bursting with laughter as we played make-believe and lived out the ridiculous scenarios we created with the kids. I refuse to ever abandon the joy that comes from storytelling, which is why I went to college to get my degree in performance.
When “working” (or playing, but with the upmost care and heart!) with children, I am wholeheartedly devoted to helping them explore their creative side. I am an arts and crafts nerd: I scrapbook and collage all of my photographs (no Facebook for me). I love to paint and color: I have countless mandala coloring books. When I am not working on a show or film, I read from my huge library and watch movies. To clear my head, I love to walk along Riverside Park to meet as many dogs and cats as I possibly can (I really miss my two Aussies back in CA).
