It's the stereotypical American showbiz story:
Girl moves to the big city*, has humble beginnings in burlesque, works her way up through vaudeville, then theater, then commercial acting, and lands where everyone in these Hollywood stories ultimately does – narrative non-fiction.
I produce and host the podcast Chicago Humanities Tapes, perform live music and emcee local events, and make lots of other things that defy categorization. A semi-finalist for the Andy Kaufman Award, I studied English and Theater at the University of Iowa and have a certificate in Eccentric Performing from that time I went to clown school.
