LALAUGH Productions was created for an incubative dream that becomes a reality after hours of work, love of the Process, Timing and a little star dust luck!
As a small child, I wrote my name all over the insides of the staircase in my first house in Mill Valley when I was three years old, in pen! I wrote my first poem when I was 6 years old. I directed my first comedy at 10 years old. Won a dance contest at 12 years old. I was quoted by a poetry magazine in England telling me I sound a lot like the well-known "RUBY" of England.
Then puberty hit and romance took over like the plague. When I could finally stick my head out from under the sheets, wow, literally? Not literally. I won my first audition at 28 years old for a part at the Eureka Theatre in San Francisco called "VIVA" I also received my first review...able cameo! My one-line was: "VIVA LA REVOLUCION!" YAY! I do feel like a revolutionary! I was 30 when I got to star in an Off-Broadway show! Published my first poem around 33 years old. Have also enjoyed some really cool reviews!
