She began as co-founder of The Public's Community Affairs department, a nationwide model for audience development, and went on to become a key member of the producing team on countless award-winning plays and musicals, working with some of the finest artists working today, such as Tony Kushner, Jeanine Tesori, Suzan-Lori Parks and Nilo Cruz. Launching George C. Wolfe's independent production company ColorMad Productions, she worked on his film Lackawanna Blues for HBO and Rosie Perez's documentary Yo Soy Boricua for IFC.
