When I was younger, around age 16 I was discovered walking down the street by a model scout. Although it was a long time ago and I had much success as a model, I put it on the back burner to pursue my career as a journalist and author. From time to time I still get calls asking me to share my story for an editorial spread.
"Give me beauty in the inward soul; may the outward and the inward be at one
Socrates Greek, Fifth century BC
It’s easy to forget the above quote of Socrates in today’s appearance-obsessed, media-driven world.
Welcome to my brand new website! I was born in Buffalo, New York. When I was a little girl I wanted to travel the world. I would sit for hours in front of a map and dream of all the places I would visit one day. I also would dream of joining the Peace Corps because I wanted to help the world and its people from poverty. It was something I dreamed about and knew it was my life's mission. I grew up in a very large happy family. There were 10 of us all together including my parents. My parents were married very young. It wasn’t easy for them but I remember being happy and had lots of siblings to play.
