Harriet writes poetry and memoir and she enjoys making lists.  She studied writing and solo performance with David Ford at The Marsh in San Francisco and has also studied at The New School and the University of Auckland.  She grew up in Texas where she enjoyed tap dancing in musicals and singing in the church choir. These days, she performs around the San Francisco Bay Area including recent appearances at Monday Night Marsh, Tell it On Tuesday, and Solo Sundays and in a V-Day production of The Vagina Monologues.

Her first original full-length show (Sail On!) was developed with David Ford and will debut at the Boulder Fringe Festival in August 2017.

Other Stuff

Check out some of Harriet’s other interests.  Traveling and exploring. Walking. Food.


Harriet loves exploring places near and far and writing about her adventures.

Favorite spots: New Zealand, Paris, Point Reyes, Tuolumne Meadows, Jackson, WY, and all the places I’ve not yet been…


Harriet loves walking around exploring cities, wild places, and the space in between.

Currently trying to hit 10K steps a day and roll my cat stroller around town. Yep.  I said it.  Cat. Stroller.


Harriet loves finding new recipes and sometimes she even cooks!

Oh, and I take pictures of food.  I can’t help it.  It’s so beautiful.
