I have been telling stories about animals, capitalism, America and me for over two decades.
My first book, Good Eggs, a comic book memoir (HarperCollins 2010), is about trying to have a baby and having a book instead. “Too Fat for China” (debuted in 2019 at the Gloucester Stage Co., just back from the ’22 Edinburgh Fringe Festival with rave reviews) is a one woman show that I wrote and performed about the terrible things I did to become a mother, including participating in the capricious, racist and immoral adoption process. “Too Fat for China” is part stand up comedy, part dramatic storytelling performance.
I didn’t intend to become a Professional Jew, but I have been teaching “Visual Midrash” at Temple Ahavat Achim in Gloucester since 2013. As a teaching artist, I have been working with students ages 7-27 since 1995 in Mexico, Somerville, Cambridge, Beverly and Gloucester.
