IF NOT NOW...WHEN

I am a Feisty, Wonderfully Aged, 98 year old. Every day I sit in a rocking chair on the front porch of my home. People in the neighborhood know me as the wise, old lady they come to for advice. It is a Warm, Summer Afternoon. I take a Nap in my rocking chair. I never wake up.

Based on that Visualization and family genes, the odds are good I will live well into my late 90's. But, even with the numbers stacked in my favor, I still consider life short.

I choose to Live each day based on the answer to this question...

IF YOU KNEW YOU COULD NOT FAIL WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

Carpe Diem!

NORTHEAST->SOUTHWESTWHERE

Born in Hamilton, Canada, I moved to Toronto, Canada when I was 2 months old.

I attended:
E.J. Sand Jr. Public School
Woodland Sr. Public School
and Thornlea Secondary High School.

Throughout high school my Plan was to follow in my father's Footsteps and become a doctor. In my final year I realized becoming a doctor was for my dad instead of for me.

After graduation, I took a year off to figure out what I wanted to do with My Life. My parents were not Thrilled but I didn't want to waste their money going to college just for the sake of going.

I Secretly had dreams of becoming a dancer. On a Whim I auditioned for the American Musical and Dramatic Academy and got accepted! My dad wasn't feeling that career choice but my mom told me to go for it or I'd always Wonder What If...

Off I went to the Big Apple to pursue my Dream. My dad supported me and became my biggest Fan.

I danced in commercials and music videos...

...modeled for Nike...

...and was part of a short lived rap group called FLEXX.

I quickly realized dancing wasn't going to be a long term career and Shifted my focus to acting. I headed west to realize the Hollywood Dream. Two years in, I landed a series regular role on a FOX television drama called Medicine Ball. It was a great experience, but I needed more of an Outlet for the stories I wanted to tell. Back to school I went and studied filmmaking at Los Angeles City College.

My films have played at festivals worldwide and aired on television. I was selected as one of fifty semi-finalists chosen by Steven Spielberg to compete in his reality series "On The Lot" which aired on FOX.

I've spent the last few years Obsessed with the internet; Learning, Discovering, Experimenting...

Now I'm using all my experiences to develop a Huge, Foolish, transmedia Project I am passionate about called CHICK.
