About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Potter/Actor/Singer-Songwriter
Location Asheville, North Carolina, United States
Introduction I've been a performer for most of my life - actress, singer, poet and songwriter. I am a mother and a grandmother. I am a student of the Torah, Talmud and Contemporary Jewish thought. I am a transplant in Asheville, NC from Santa Monica, CA. I have caught a severe and persistent case of throw-pot and couldn't be happier. I am gluten intolerant, and knowing this has changed my life.
