"Okay, say cheese, Baby. Cheeeeeese! Okay but this time with your mouth open, smiling. Cheeeeese! And try to hold still. Okay, say Ch-- wait, again but eyes up. Eyes up. Up. Up. Up. Eyes up.

I spent 16 years in the television business. I worked, by turns, as a writer, director, producer, casting associate, and the gal who gets everybody’s Starbucks order. Later, I spent time as a counselor at an outpatient program for adorable teens with un-adorable psych and addiction issues. Working in the orbit of actors, rock stars, comedians, and teenagers prepared me for my current gig as the stay-at-home mother of a kindergartner named Bob. Now, it’s like the circus has come to town everyday. I am living the dream.
