About Me

I fled the tranquil countryside of Oklahoma to become an urban upstart in Manhattan with a stopover in Austin, Texas. After adventures in the music business and the theater, I got hitched, became a mom (to a pre-school lass and a baby boy) and moved to Brooklyn with the rest of ‘em. We all make our choices.
