I started my career as a classically trained actress and theater producer, director, and educator.
I spent much of my twenties as Artistic Director of Theater 150 in Ojai, California. I performed, directed, administrated, fundraised, educated, and cleaned toilets.
I helped to start a national playwrights conference and supported new works in our mainstage productions, before leaving Ojai to pursue acting and playwriting in New York City.
NOTE: In my old theater days, I went by my maiden name Elizabeth "Rosie" Rosengren.
My play about Chekhov's female character's was produced in downtown Manhattan to critical acclaim.
