Where creativity and transformation meet.
For twenty plus years I’ve been singing and dancing my way through the world at lightning speed. I’ve had a glorious time taking creative risks, goal setting, and living my life from one project to the next.
My creative work, plays, and music are stories of transformation and growth. They are a collection of women in my head who are on a path of growth, freedom and authenticity. As I grow alongside my work and build strength as a writer & composer, I write what I learn. Much of my work aims to be comedic in nature with a twist of reality and a dose of charm.
As you poke around in here I hope you find something that peaks your interest. I aim to write stories and music that take people on a journey. You’ll also find my dance schedule, new shows I am working on, ways to connect with me and more.
Thanks for stopping by!
Originally born in Houston, Texas, I’ve lived most of my life in Northern California/The Bay Area/Silicon Valley.
A veteran musical theater performer who added writing and composition to my resume, I wrote my first musical collaboration Becoming Britney with co-writer Daya Curley and won the “outstanding actor” award at The New York International Fringe Festival. Becoming Britney went on to two more regional professional productions in California.
Commissioned by Center Rep in Walnut Creek and then produced by the legendary Garry Marshall in Los Angeles, my second play, Real Housewives The Musical is currently being performed across the country and has seen two productions in Australia.
Both musicals are published and available for world wide licensing through Stage Rights in Los Angeles.
I currently teach my popular dance fitness/choreography class twice a month at Groovitude Dance Palo Alto. Dance fitness and cardio dance has been a passion of mine for twenty plus years and helps me stay in shape and keep my choreographic skills sharp.
Although I’m currently “retired” from private and group coaching, for twenty five years I ran a popular voice and acting coach and have worked with hundreds of aspiring and professional students from eight to seventy years of age. I love to see many of my past students working in the arts.
Specializing in corporate creative work, I’ve freelanced with Netflix, Ebay, Fleet Feet, Pricewaterhouse Cooper and more throughout the years, writing original music, creating special events, flashmobs, parties, and speaking engagements. It’s been quite a ride!
Currently you can find me at home raising my children, walking my dog and working on a few writing projects, a solo show, a few musical ideas that I’m fleshing out. I always hope to be on stage soon and if I am you can find out about it here.
I have two children Ryder & Rylie Kuckein and my husband Kurt Kuckein is senior director of marketing for DDN AI in Silicon Valley.
