Born and raised in Hamilton Ontario, Canada, I am the fifth of eight children. I studied and graduated in the Computer IT field where I have cultivated a successful IT career. For personal fulfillment, I look to the arts and focus on pursuits that ignite my inner passion.
Building on a career of experience in the corporate world in conjunction with years of immersing myself in arts including; dance, photography, runway modeling and film acting I feel as though I have been following a bread crumb trail leading me to the path that I am on today.
Pursing that trail, listening to that inner voice that drives passion and knowing that the sum of happiness is derived from more than the corporate job, I began my pursuit in earnest. My personal hours are devoted to study work in the art of acting through formal education and on set experience.
In the arts, as with the corporate world, the adage that hard work is the path to success holds true and continues fuel my pursuit as both study and play with iron clad focus and determination.
I share this quote with you:
"If you feel energy and excitement and a sense that life is happening for the first time, you are probably near your god given nature. Joy in what we do is not an added feature; it is a sign deep health" -- Mark Nepo
