A talented storyteller whose work blurs the boundaries of comedy, memoir and theater, Beth is an accomplished writer and performer in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has trained extensively with BATS, Ann Randolph and other inspirational coaches and directors. She is a founding member of the Silicon Valley Improv Group and The Bookworms, five time winners of the BATS Improv Cage Match.

Beth performs regularly on stages around the Bay Area such as the SF Moth, BATS Bayfront, Stagewerx, a.Muse, and the Santa Cruz Broadway Playhouse. In 2014 Beth performed a six week run at Un-Scripted Theater in Beloved Strangers, a completely improvised three-act play about family. In 2013 she performed her one woman show Skates at The Marsh and other venues around the Bay Area.
Beth currently lives in Mountain View. A Bay Area native, she holds a BA in Rhetoric from UC Berkeley. After a decade of working in software development she launched a second career in movement as a teacher of dance, Pilates and Gyrotonic. A mother of two wonderful boys, Beth is an enthusiastic musician and enjoys singing and playing guitar, ukulele and harmonica to blow off stress. She is developing her next solo show and writing a collection of creative nonfiction.
