All communication is projection.
It’s how we view the world. We are the writer, the director, and, hey, look at that, we nabbed the lead role too. Sometimes we just need to dust off the lens or switch out the reel, and other times, we need a little help to check ourselves before we wreck ourselves.
That’s where I come in!
I bring equal parts insight, enthusiasm, and spunk to all of my workshops, coaching sessions, speaking engagements, and writing projects. Combining my education from the Theatre Education graduate program (M.A.) at Emerson College, the Roy H. Park School of Communications (B.S.) at Ithaca College, The Stella Adler Studio of Acting (NYC), and The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre (NYC), I aim to boost the fun and curb the funk. I believe, without a doubt, that the best leaders are the most curious students and that eavesdropping on strangers’ convos will save the world.
I created Sow to Speak, to offer workshops using the techniques and tools of improv theater (called applied improv) to improve teamwork, communication, leadership, and creativity. Participants work together to build resilience to failure and uncertainty while boosting healthy risk-taking, stress management, self-awareness, and speaking up with confidence.

Now about you.
The best leaders have the incredible ability to bring us together so that we can truly connect and express our unique selves all while finding a genuine sense of belonging in this whole shebang.
We’re all leaders somewhere in our lives. Sometimes it’s our choosing. Other times it’s our duty. Either way, it’s a birthright for each of us. What’s needed is…
A shift in the spotlight.
We need to reorganize our mindset on what we’re saying & doing and why.
I meet you where you are and help you figure out the best way to communicate so that you make a healthy habit out of acting with a renewed strength, courage and integrity.
Stellar communication and creativity are not designated for the chosen few. There’s no secret password or cool factor required. We all have the potential to reach deep into our imagination and find inspiration that we never knew was in us. It’s already there. It’s just lying dormant and needing a yank of the blinds to let the good times roll.
I share the life experiences I’ve lived in hopes that you’ll do the same. I do the digging and give you all the golden nuggets so that you can use it to communicate your boldest and clearest message to the rest of us. After all, individual commitment to a group effort is what makes the world go round in the right direction.
“While we have the gift of life, it seems to me the only tragedy is to allow part of us to die – whether it is our spirit, our creativity or our glorious uniqueness.”
