In New York, she worked with LAByrinth Theater Company and Manhattan Theater Source. She produced Fusion Film Festival at NYU and The Estrogenius Theater Festival at MTS, both of which encourage strong working relationships between men and women in the arts. Recently, she directed the farce Run For Your Wife at the Morgan Wixson and Tip of the Cap, the one man show based on Ted Williams, both of which received outstanding reviews and sold out. She is also a writer working with theaters like Palo Alto Children’s Theater where she led the summer workshop youth in their creation of the full length play World of Two, which dealt with corporate responsibility, love and war.
