About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I love traveling and spending time with people all over the world, learning about their lives and and what matters most to them :)

ABOUT ME

PRESENT: I have sold a few screenplays and now working on my first documentary feature. It's called The Quiet Genocide and is about the last 80 years of ethnic purging in the Dominican Republic. I will be in NY and need a place to stay while we try and get donors for our film!

PAST: Part time blogger. Full time hippie. ;) I'm a singer/songwriter/screenwriter :) I like simple things, like sleeping in and sunsets. I love people and smiley faces! :) I think the greatest gift you can give another person is your ear. I love movies, laughter, art and Dr. Seuss too! I am currently writing a screenplay, a book and starting a glamour blog! I believe all things are possible and want to make a positive impact on society through my art and life.

There is a time for departure even when there i€™s no certain place to go- Tennessee Williams.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

In Paris it was watching the Tour D'Eiffel every night sparkle just before it shuts off for the night at 1am.

In Vieques, Puerto Rico it's every night watching the stars sparkle and never shutting off. Pure Bliss.

Vieques, Puerto Rico everyday is a phenomenon of surprises and joy. To be there is to be one with nature and people. Perfect Paradise.

I am passionate about youth and Childrens' Rights worldwide; I am in the process of working with Cross Cultural Solutions, a program in consultation with the U.N., to go volunteer for orphanages around the world.
