My family bounced me between Europe and America through my formative years. I started out in France as part of a brilliant bunch of eccentrics that includes all manner of amazing careers: ballerina, opera singer, portrait artist, director, business leader, politician, physician… there’s a lot to live up to.
Travel and theater were our way of life. We gathered colorful stories as souvenirs. I’ve been to nearly every state in America and even had the privilege of living in five of them; from sea to shining sea. In New York, I distinguished myself in theatrical productions and I’ve come to consider NYC my hometown. I’ve lived on four continents and both hemispheres.
My passion for storytelling won me merit scholarships to boarding school and university. I majored in film studies in an attempt to incorporate all of my interests into one medium. My business as a professional organizer paid the bills and allowed me to help fellow creatives when I couldn’t find steady film work. I’m the unusual creative who is also highly practical.
I was incredibly fortunate during my time in Los Angeles to assist A-list talent. Working with the best in the field, I learned a lot. There was glamour, but there is also a lot of hard work. Creativity is nothing without hard work.
At the moment, I’m in Canada with my partner and our daughters. I’m writing a memoir and a novel. And in my spare time I indulge the family curse of the opera voice.
I’m good at chatting and I like to hear your stories so I look forward to your comments and emails. I believe that everyone has common ground if you look hard enough. I am lucky that I can relate to anyone. My life saw to that.
