An Attempt to Fit in a Box
A literal exploration of attempting to conform to social standards.
Tidbits: I take great pride in my multifaceted roles as a mother and a versatile performer, proficient in both singing and dancing for various events. I’ve had the pleasure of captivating audiences at prestigious venues like the Rainbow Room. Furthermore, I’ve had the honor of recording several songs in collaboration with the prolific musician and songwriter Randy Muller, best known for the 1976 hit Movin’ with Brass Construction. In my formative years, I graced the renowned stages of Broadway, and recorded several jingles that aired on the radio. Additionally, I had the unique experience of having Howard Stern play a song I sang, injecting his signature humor into the mix.

The Online Experience
My goal is to fashion a realm that kindles not only the artist’s imagination but also my own. Through the exploration of set and lighting design, magic unfolds itself. Allowing playtime that knows no bounds.
