Writer . Producer . Music Executive . A Girl On The Go
I'm a music and entertainment professional, writer, information hound, and people person. I am fortunate to spend my days filling my ears with music and laughter, and my eyes with the written word. I love jazz and funk, classic rock, and guilty pleasures like Jimmy Buffett, that take me back to happy days and sunshine. My top five favorite songs of all time? The Rolling Stones' Angie, Alice Cooper's Is It My Body, Ella Fitzgerald & Louie Armstrong's Summertime, Queen's Fat Bottomed Girls and Beth Hart's version of I'd Rather Go Blind. If I could bring a musician back from the great arena in the sky for one final concert, it would be Freddie Mercury. If I could lunch with an author, it would be Carl Hiaasen. I have my nose buried in everything from the L.A. Times to the the New Yorker to Rolling Stone. I love politics, gossip and books. I was an internationally touring stand-up comic for nearly two decades. I have excellent communication skills. I have extensive audio and video production/post-production experience, including Adobe Audition, Cool Edit, Audacity and Pro Tools. My visual experience is solid, as well. I'm skilled at Adobe Photoshop and website design. I've managed social networking sites for major corporations and legendary entertainers. I type 120 words per minute, thanks to my middle school typing teacher, Miss Golson. My sun sign of Virgo has left me with an extreme urge to organize everything that crosses my path. I love file folders. I wish I could bottle the smell of an office supply store. I'm a PADI certified SCUBA diver. When I'm not working, I am a homebody who loves to spend time with my dogs and husband, perched on the couch in front of my TV. I'm a five-time published author. Check out my latest projects below!
