Recovering lawyer; surviving executive of two Bay Area start-ups that churned through staff in the pursuit of bigger, better, faster, more revenue growth. Found improv while battling the mental and physical health consequences of burn-out in the fall of 2011. Applying an improviser’s mindset off stage has led me to more intuitive decision making, including the intentional slowing of the pace of my personal and professional life in the last year. I'm the leader of Lightside Collective, a theatrical improv performer, a super-involved preschool parent, a DIY-enthusiast, and a small-scale real estate investor.

I'm passionate about sharing the levity-restoring practices of improv with weighed down adults who need a way back to the light.
