Caryn's solo show MOMufactured is a funny and poignant insider’s look at parenting. She and her husband, Craig are grateful parents to two daughters. Caryn’s recording, "Journey" is about her path to motherhood and is available at her live events.
Caryn has a passion for helping nonprofits with benefit performances. She created Come Fly With Me as a tribute to Grand Cayman's community and history for the National Trust for the Cayman Islands. She collaborated with survivors of domestic abuse, weaving their stories into a set of songs for the Crisis Center Cayman Islands 20th anniversary gala. Her performances have also benefitted the Cayman Arts Festival and Jasmine Hospice Care. In Chicago she performed for many years with Acts Of Kindness Cabaret and served on their board.
Caryn was a founding member of Chicago’s premier female a cappella quartet, Route 66, performing at venues like Soldier’s Field, the Museum of Science and Industry, and the United Center.
As a proud member of Actors Equity Association, Caryn has been seen in regional theater productions of Sweeney Todd at Marriott’s Lincolnshire Theater and in Maury Yeston's Phantom. Favorite roles include Anne Egerman in A Little Night Music, Velma Kelly in Chicago, and Molly Brown in The Unsinkable Molly Brown.
