NEWS FLASH: The Audiobook of IMPROV WISDOM is now available for sale on Amazon and I am the reader of the book. So you can hear my voice sharing the Maxims and telling stories. Check out the sample.

I am an Emerita of Stanford University where I taught for three decades in the Drama Department. I founded the Stanford Improvisors in 1991, and I have spent a happy lifetime leading classes, seminars and workshops that teach the ease of the creative process and the magic of improvising. I currently teach for the Esalen Insitute and for Stanford's Continuing Studies. My book, IMPROV WISDOM: Don't Prepare, Just Show Up was published in 2005 by Bell Tower Books, a Random House publication. I design workshops and keynote presentations for organizations worldwide. My current passion is plein air watercolor painting.
