Born and raised in Staten Island, New York. I started acting at a very young age in community theater, as well as commercial and catalog modeling. The “Johnson and Johnson”, baby shampoo spot in the 80’s, helped put me on the radar for many great opportunities in my future.
I worked continuously throughout my childhood as a model and commercial actor, and then ultimately booking a small recurring role on NY soap opera, “All My Children”. After landing several other roles on New York produced shows, I moved to Los Angeles and guest starred on the pilot “Working” for NBC and several network sitcoms. And so the story keeps going. I had since had the opportunity to work and learn from reputable actors and directors such as Alec Baldwin, Fred Savage, Ed Burns, Chad Coleman, John Stamos, Matthew Rhys, James Spader, just to name a few.
One of my most rewarding projects was the independent film “Life Love Soul” opposite Chad Coleman (All American) and Jamie Hector (Bosch). This independent award winning film opened nationwide in AMC theaters and won the NYC Urban World audience award. “Life Love Soul” is an inspiring film and can still be seen on BET~her. Also, playing the real life “Honey” Ginger Blake, in “The Beach Boys, An American Family” is a classic, that can still be seen on VH1.
I live in NYC with my two children. I practice daily yoga and I love to write children's books. As a certified teacher assistant for the NYCDOE, I work with children who need some light in their lives. And ultimately, that's what it's all about.
Light and love.
