Annie's Bio

While living in the Midwest (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) and after returning from L.A., I found myself in pursuit of something more fulfilling in life. That's when I discovered `the stage'. (I was also very bored with skiing downhill and falling all the time!). I started out working in props and stage managing and quickly moved onto the boards. That was it! I was hooked! Here are some of my favorite roles:

DEATH OF A SALESMAN - Linda Loman
NIGHT OF THE IQUANA - Judith
THE DINING ROOM - Multiple Characters
STEEL MAGNOLIAS - Ouiser
THE LITTLE FOXES - Regina
ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST - Nurse Ratched

SOCIAL SECURITY - Sophie
SHADOWLANDS - Joy Gresham
THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER - Nurse Preen
THE HAPPY TIME - Aunt Felice

Thanks for visiting

I am the owner of F.A.B., FL ACTORS BUSINESS, which published a guidebook for talent for 25 years (FAB/Florida Actors/Models Book) and was retired in January 2015. F.A.B. ACTion also acts as the umbrella for my word processing business, which means I do all kinds typing (letters, forms, contracts, grants, memos, and resumes) for talent and small business professionals. Over the years, I have earned the title "Talent Consultant" because of my work with FAB and talent. In our acting community, it's been, "Ask Annie...." for a number of years. I talk to a lot of people, of all ages, in all segments of the business, production, talent and parents, from all over the country. This has given me a lot of information from all sectors of this business, and I try to return it to the business as helpful advice. My creed has always been that the more we network, the more we help each other, the stronger our industry will be. It's the key to good relationships. I've hope you've enjoyed your visit.
