Biography

I applied to graduate school in the performing arts and was accepted into the Masters Degree program in Acting and Directing at Florida Atlantic University.

Meet the Act

I have been performing and singing since childhood, but really started doing it professionally since the mid-1990's. I have worked in cabarets and musical revues in Greenwich Village, performed in a variety of hotels and theaters in South Florida, and performed in gated communities and country clubhouses throughout the Northeast U.S. About ten years ago I began performing as my own piano accompanist and find that to be a very fulfilling way to express myself musically.
