A Multi-Disciplinary Artist in Pursuit of Creativity

I’m an improviser who writes, paints, and performs. 

AND an entrepreneur who teaches others how to integrate improvisation into their creative practice.


My paintings are for sale, my writing is for reading, my performances are for entertaining,

AND my time is for hire.

I paint with acrylics, watercolors, and oils although, as a multi-disciplinary artist, I'll use anything. If I waited for the perfect medium, I'd never create anything.  As a colorist, I'm especially drawn to Abstract Expressionism.

I'm currently finalizing my first novel. Stay tuned! I also write short stories. When I need a break from those I attempt poetry and essays. I've also published a nonfiction book, Yes, And! Harnessing the Power of Improvisation to Transform Your Life and Work

When I perform, I discover  characters hiding inside of me and learn from them.  I'm grateful to all the improvisers, writers, and performers who've allowed me such a range of experiences on stages, in films, and more.

I still work with corporations. Now, I'm sharing my methods as a multi-disciplinary artist integrating improvisation with painters, writers, and performers in workshops, coaching, and on my blog. Besides updates on offerings, you'll read musings on creativity, see a sketchbook of ideas, and become a comrade in thwarting chaos.
