Proud to be a former New Yorker from the Bronx. Started out as a composer/lyricist & eventually drove the 5 day scenic (sometimes) route to L.A. where I continued my musical thirst by showcasing my songs at every "open mic on sunday nites" I could find.. Within a short time my passions expanded to the dramatic and/or flamboyant parts of me. I survived the journey of extra work, student films, progressing to Short & Indie films. In 1996, my ambitions came to a halt when I was burned in an arson fire. Theatrically in 2007, as part of a solo series, I wrote & performed my one woman show "Embraceable Hue", a play textured with music, song & a tap dance number; "honoring" that chapter of my life. If for no other reason, being burned like that only "fueled" (pardon me) my purpose and ambition in life. I am presently seeking venues(NYC or perhaps London)) to hopefully, put my show up sometime in the future. Most recently, I was fortunate to be cast as the Head Nurse in "Silent Life", an original silent feature film interpretation, about the tumultuous life & death of Rudolph Valentino; scheduled for release May 2018.
