Barbara first began demonstrating her “eye” for selecting choice literary projects at age 12 where she was a beloved recurring panelist on highly rated CBS’s Kid Critics. Trying her hand in each of the performing arts, she found her way on to the board of Women In Film and collaborated on several PSA campaigns for battered women’s awareness.
In 1984, Barbara moved with her husband, Paul, to Worms, Germany, while he was in active service with the Army. Barbara was “discovered” on base one day as someone with “producer” quality and quickly ascended a level of positions to become the Director of The Performing Arts Theatre for the U.S. Army’s facility there. This was the location for all USO stopovers and military entertainment in the area. Bearing in mind that the U.S. Military is the largest theatre system in the world, tripling London or Broadway, Barbara became quite confident in her skills as a producer. This experience contributed to her relocation to Los Angeles.
Turning her attention from stage to screen, Barbara found herself both acting and producing in Los Angeles. Co-starring television roles on HBO’s Big Love, NBC’s ER, CBS’s 7th Heaven, Lifetime’s Unsolved Mysteries, NBC’s The Others, and repeat appearances on The Tonight Show, have quickly given Barbara notice.
Her film roles range from appearances in Universal’s Red Dragon and The Coen brothers’ Intolerable Cruelty, to supporting rolls in films like Cineville’s The Affair and Brooklyn Reptile’s Boppin At The Glue Factory. Her film project, Doria, which she executive produced and in which she starred, was a winner of the Flickering Image Festival in 2004.
Another production of Barbara’s is Family, which she co-produced and in which she starred. Just Desserts, her most recent project, had its premiere screening in February 2008. In July 2008 Barbara returned to being in front of the camera with her role as Mrs. Cee in My Homework Ate My Dog. Her most recent film project was Just Desserts, which she executive produced and in which she starred. Just Desserts now has worldwide theatrical distribution, and a TV contract is currently being negotiated. Family is another of her film projects which she co produced and in which she starred. Barbara is currently developing/producing a romantic comedy feature film, Three Times A Lady, which she co wrote.
Television roles on AMC/s Mad Men, HBO’s Big Love, NBC’s ER, CBS’s 7th Heaven, NBC’s The Others, Lifetime’s Unsolved Mysteries, and repeat appearances on The Tonight Show, have quickly given Barbara notice. Her film roles range from appearances in Universal’s Red Dragon and The Coen brothers’ Intolerable Cruelty, to supporting roles in several other films.
