I infuse all of my communications and teaching with humor. If you can make someone laugh, you can get your point across.

In 2002, I started studying Improv at BATS theater in San Francisco and in 2014, I moved to Chicago to study improv; sketch, comedy and memoir writing; and to do stand-up at The Second City. In 2016, I contributed to Trump’s America: The Complete Loser’s Guide (Simon & Schuster, 2016) with editor Scott Dikkers, co-founder of The Onion.

The lessons I’ve learned from over 15 years studying comedy, improv and stand-up make it into every Find Your Voice writing exercise and workshop I teach. I’ve also taught creativity through improv to kids, and to adults on an adventure cruise ship in Alaska, a manor house in the English countryside, and to GreenPeace in the UK.



If you’ve ever wondered how to say ‘gynecologist’ in American Sign Language, here’s your chance.
