Who I Am
Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, I was always aware of stars and celebrities. They lived down the street. You saw them at the grocery store. You parked next to them at the restaurant. I had no jealousy of them. They were just people on a different path from me. I was aware and observed.
I watched old movies with my dad and became addicted to the modern goings on of that which we define as popular culture. Observing and adding commentary to those observations became a way of life.
I am a Southerner...and most of the time I am proud of it. It effects how I see myself and view the world, but I like to think I have risen above the cliche' of "southern thinking." I like to think I kept the best of my southerness and yankeefied the rest.
I have always written and acted. I was a shy child unless I was on stage, and sometimes to get there, I had to write a performance piece. This multi- tasking has served me well.
I have worked in community and professional theatre for over 30 years and at one time, for several years, was a on-air radio personality for both country and adult contemporary radio stations.
I live on the East Coast and cannot imagine living anywhere else at this time. I love the history, variety and mix of people, and the opportunity and thinking of the area.
I blog and I podcast and I encourage you to subscribe and review both!
