I discovered my love of acting early on, landing part after part until it came time to make decisions about my post-collegiate career. I set my passion on the shelf and left for graduate school where studies consumed every minute of my day. I learned that while I had little time to act, I could write, and write I did!
During my successful career as a Trauma Psychologist, I wrote hundreds of articles, chapters, courses and books. After two decades invested in that career, I finally began my journey back into the film industry.
While I still occasionally take an acting part, I have focused on my well-honed writing, administrative and fund-raising skills to found with my partner, Ben Graziose, a small production company called The Grazlin Group. Unlike other writing partnerships, Ben and I have a broad portfolio that includes projects from Competitive Reality TV, to a sitcom pilot, to an edgy Coming of Age drama, to a Romantic Comedy, to documentaries!
We look forward to collaborating with other members of Stage 32 so that our mission of spreading the message of HOPE becomes not only emotionally-rewarding but financially beneficial as well!
