I was born in Chicago, Illinois into an educated family that was not exactly artistically inclined. My Dad’s career kept us moving around so we ended up in Middleton, Wisconsin where most of my musical likes and dislikes were formed. The local radio stations catered to Hard Rock, Classic Rock, or Country. Little did I know that this would eventually shape my entire future.
I would practice in my basement with my Sisters and Brother and try to imitate Celebrities singing and dancing on stage. After a while I started landing lead singing roles with many different groups in School. I learned about many different styles of music from opera to music from other countries in foreign languages.
From High School I moved to Mt. Holly, New Jersey and enjoyed music there, and dabbled a little bit in acting and singing, but never really seriously pursued anything. I did some modeling, but in the back of my mind I knew that I would eventually move to California and go after my life-long desire to be an Entertainer.
Finally I decided to drive across the United States in a beat-up old Toyota Station Wagon. I had about $250.00 left in my pocket when I reached the big sign that said “Welcome to California”! With a tear in my eye, I pulled over, got out of the car and kissed the ground. I had made it! This was it! That same day I was hired at Circuit City fulltime. That’s when I knew it was meant to be!
It took years to acclimate myself to California. What a hick I was! It seemed as if everyone was beautiful and thin here. There was so much competition for everything. I made a living in the fields of Kitchen Design and Appliance Sales for a while. I also acted on the side in Films, Television, and Commercials for years. All of these experiences finally brought me here, where I am today.
