About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Entertainer/writer/director
Location Off the beaten path & all over the map!, including Las Vegas, NYC, L.A., Toronto, Chicago, etc., United States
Introduction I am a singer/dancer/entertainer who also writes, directs and produces shows for conventions, retirement communities & now TV! I grew up in Colorado Springs, went to school in Chicago (Northwestern), and spent 9 years in New York City before I moved to Las Vegas. I adore traveling—I co-starred in the national tour of No, No Nanette, sang on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean, rode a camel to the pyramids in Egypt, sat in with a band in Budapest, and even checked out Bulgaria, Istanbul, Athens and more! I spent a month in Europe (from Amsterdam and Paris, to Frankfurt and London) and I’ve been in nearly every U.S. state (just Alaska & North Dakota to go). I’ve worked as a newspaper reporter in Georgia, a toll-free telephone operator in Colorado, sang on a harbor cruise ship for 6 months in Virginia Beach, Virginia, took a magazine desktop (as the computer guru’s liaison) in NYC and more! I tap danced at the Cotton Club in Harlem with the American Tap Dance Orchestra and sang at the Moulin Rouge in Vegas, opening for Sweet Louie & The Treniers! Spiritually, I’m a mystic, politically, I’m a libertarian and philosophically, I’m deep!

As an energy being, what are you "feeding" your energies (as in what you're listening to, what you're watching and what you're dancing to)?
