Strengths


An experienced live performer, I am tuned to the needs of audiences. Singing and acting on stage since the age of 14, I have a keen sense of what is needed to hold someone's attention. Subtext!!

I am adept at delivering authentic accents and realistically speaking in foreign languages. I earned a music degree in voice at Florida State where I was classically trained in French and Italian art songs and German lieder. I continued my exploration of foreign language songs, singing in Russian and Eastern European languages as well as Portuguese and Spanish. I have the ability to match accents as well as my own recordings, even done years earlier.

I can make dense language understandable and entertaining. I studied acting at The Alliance Theatre. I racked up classical credits in Shakespeare, Ibsen, Moliere and Goethe. Contemorary credits include many works of Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller​, Becket, Peter Shaffer and A.R. Gurney.

I have a strong sense of comedic timing. I worked for 10 years as the zany singing comedienne, “Bambola,” vocalist of The DeLuxe Vaudeville Orchestra (a touring variety show band). I can spin plates. Really.

I can find and deliver the musicality of a text. After my classical singing, I segued into jazz, interpreting the Great American Songbook and recording two solo vocal jazz albums. My musical exploration continues as I delve deeper into vocal improvisation, studying with a protege of Bobby McFerrin.

I'm a non-fiction natural. With a talent for empathy, I can convey the passion of the non-fiction writer in history, business, and other genres. I am an experienced teacher with over 17 years as an adjunct professor at Emory University School of Law teaching artful advocacy and storytelling using theater arts.
