She was again swept away by a passion for acting that led to her performing in several off-Broadway shows, as well as directing a few.This led to her working with director Eric Bross, in front of and behind the camera. She was responsible for casting many seasoned and new talent, including Adrien Brody, in his first lead role in the indie film, "Ten Benny." She followed that with a second collaboration with Bross on "Restaurant" which showcased many rising stars from Simon Baker to Lauryn Hill, to Frank Vincent.
