quilts

I am currently exploring new ways to look at quilting, including incorporating elements of science and technology, and using nontraditional materials.

I am a member of the Board of the Ventura Modern Quilt Guild.

moving images

I have written and directed several short animations and films, including the 16mm minor opus Megathlon (1995), an absurdist look at the parallels between “healthy” competition and fascist propaganda. I co-produced the indie film showcase Clipshow, which was broadcast on San Francisco’s Access SF cable station from 2002-3.

flesh

I perform and teach improv at the Ventura Improv Company. I have also appeared with Instant Karma and Friends and other groups and shows in Southern California.

As an actor, I appeared in several short films, including John Dilley’s Little Failures, which was selected for the 2003 Sundance Film Festival.

In 2014, I appeared onstage at the To Whom It May Concern reading series, reading letters from my mother to a much younger me.

I was a regular performer at the Ukulady’s Ponyshow in Los Angeles in 2007 and 2008. I read from my real teenage diaries –  the sad, mad, weird, poignant ramblings of a 13- to 19- year old, sending verbose postcards from the middle of the 1980s.
