About Me

CURRENT MISSION

be really good at what I love

ABOUT ME

Originally from NJ. I stayed with folks I met on couchsurfing.org in LA for 3 months back in 2010. Liked it enough to switch my home base from Brooklyn to Hollywood for the beginning of 2014. I'm here to become a big pop star. Duh.

I'm a performer and a video director. Currently working on projects that involve/combine dancing, acting, improv comedy, singing + songwriting. I teach & coach improv movement.

Here are a couple music videos I've directed and edited:

I starred in the Kickstarter-funded viral dance-film "Girl Walk // All Day":

PHILOSOPHY

I like this quote! :
"Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

excerpts from a facebook thread this spring of 2010~

my friend: "i used to be a couchsurfing member but i never planned on actually using it (i guess i was a little worried about being touched in the wrong places in the middle of the night) so i honor your bravado..
i hope only the good kind of touching is going on!"

me: "i've met nothing but awesome, generous, open-minded folks who have touched me in places i've never been touched before, places everyone should experience being touched at some point in their life... the world would be a better place if everyone could be touched as i have been here in los angeles"
