I am a trained visual and performing artist and model. I grew up very involved in the fine and performing arts and have performed as a dancer, singer/songwriter, actor, musician,and model. I was a Music Theater Dance Major at the University at Buffalo, and trained at both Steps On Broadway and Alvin Ailey Studios in NYC. I am a strong, athletic, and independent woman. I have many interests and passions, and hope that this page will give me the chance to share them! I am an artist, a writer, and a composer, and a strong advocate and supporter of the arts and arts programming. I am also involved in community development and outreach focused on the arts, environment, and healthy living. I believe it is important to take care of ourselves and each other, exercising our bodies and our minds, to live the most fulfilling and happy life possible. I have also struggled with asthma and chronic lung disease my whole life and would love to be an advocate for lung disease awareness and support.
