I am an actress, writer, independent film producer, and communications coach based in Los Angeles; with credits in television, film, and theater. My one-woman show, DRIVING THE SAUDIS, has been performed nationwide and in Vienna (Austria), and won Best Solo Show at the 2010 New York Fringe Festival. It is now a New York Times and international bestselling nonfiction book published by Simon & Schuster (2012). 


Drawing from my extensive training and experience,

I have privately coached many top litigators, executives and professionals from around the country on their communication and presentation skills. I have degrees from Cornell University and Harvard University’s American Repertory Theatre Institute, and have taught workshops at NYU, Cornell, Hollins, University of Redlands, and Cal State Northridge. I volunteer with arts education for kids.


I am one of ten children and am an excellent driver.

There are a lot of “I”s in these sentences.


My preferred mode of transportation is a pink beach cruiser, pictured here. I’ve had three other bikes stolen

but am not bitter about it.
