I've been working in the entertainment industry for 25 years as a writer, producer and coach.
My independent production company, Monday Morning Productions, has produced new works by established playwrights featuring award-winning performers for twenty years. MMP has also been a platform to produce my own works, including my debut play, A Month of Sundays, him & her and my popular web series, “He’s With Me“, which debuted online in June 2013. The show has been nominated for numerous awards and has been chosen as official selections of the Independent Series Awards, The LA Web Fest, The Denver Film Festival, The Seattle Film Festival and the Rome Web Awards. Both seasons are currently offered on YouTube, OutTV and Dekkoo and is offered for sale on Amazon. My upcoming series, "Cady Did", created for Tony Award Winner Cady Huffman, debuts soon.
My film, “A Conversational Place”, directed by Bob Giraldi and starring Emmy winner Marilyn Sokol, has been an official selection by many film festivals across the country, including Miami Short Film Festival, Atlanta ShortsFest, OUTrageous Film Festival of Santa Barbara, FilmColumbia and DAMN! Film Series. The film won a Gold Spotlight Award and an Award of Merit, Best Actress (Marilyn Sokol) and Best Screenplay (Jason Cicci) by the One-Reeler Short Film Competition. Other film projects include "Superfriends" and "Lipstick Ladies".
I am a consultant at School of Visual Arts, helping students create narrative stories with complex characters. I've also made a niche for myself coaching young actors.
A lifelong supporter of the arts, I serve on the Advisory Board of the Theatre World Awards and as an adjudicator for the Innovative Theatre Awards.
I received my BFA in Drama and Music from Syracuse University.
