The Funny Stuff:
At the age of three, my parents sent me to a child psychologist; "Why?" you may ask... because my first words were lines mimicked from Looney Tunes (and for a LONG time, those were literally the only words I would use). They anxiously awaited my prognosis only for the doctor to report that, "She just really really likes T.V.." Since then, film & television have always been my number one passion. My interest in the arts expanded over the years and branched out towards the fine arts, singing, writing and acting (I've actually been told I bear a striking resemblance to Ralph Macchio- except his mustache is a little bigger than mine LOL.) and of course... comedy.
The Boring Stuff:
Born and raised in Northern New Jersey (outside of NYC) I eventually made my way to Savannah, GA where I attended film school. After college I travelled to a few different states, while working in the media production industry. (I resided & worked in Atlanta, Los Angeles and New Jersey.) Currently, I'm back living in the NJ/NYC area with my husband & two daughters, along with our dog Spike. (We recently had to put our other dog Gizmo down- RIP Gizmo.)
