I am an "Artist in Residence." I have been performing for 40 years. I am a child of the theatre. I graduated from the Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts and continued my education in Musical Theatre at SUNY Fredonia and finally receiving the Certificate in Dance Composition from SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Dance. I am the owner of Virtue Dance Collective which is a Freelance Dance co. which operates solely off grant funding. Former Artistic Director of African American Cultural Center's Dance & Drum Performance Co. and am currently a consultant for the Kakilambe' African Dance co.

I currently sing in community choirs and continue to perform in community theatre. I have worked for the colleges in WNY as well the Buffalo Public School system and Arts in Education Institute.
