Hey, I'm Theresa!

Hoboken, New Jersey

I'm an actress, writer, director and mother.  I've spent over a decade collaborating with gifted actors and directors in the solo show genre for theatre. And now The Mother Lode  represents an exciting move forward for me as a strong, emerging female voice in film!  Shaping and directing the work of passionate storytellers brings me joy. And it's in the genre of solo theatre that the seeds of The Mother Lode Series are planted.
