i play savion glover's understudy in the westchester broadway
theatre version of 'bring in da noise, bring in da funk'. i do the
voice over for stephen hawking in most of his east coast public
appearances. i like to spell most words britishly, with the
unnecessary 'u'. and i also co-wrote the lyrics to the second verse
of the 'golden girls' theme song.

[7/4/2009: i created this profile about 5 years ago and i'm not really sure what still accurately represents me and what doesn't... i'm currently in the midst of a drastic career change doing an accelerated 2nd degree BS in nursing in lower westchester until 2010, then hopefully a year of nyc hospital experience, and straight into an NP grad program... so, i'm always looking for more excuses to spend time in the city as i plan on living and working in manhattan after graduation... also, i still hate using capital letters and hope a recently deceased bea arthur isn't upset that i've been using her name in this profile irreverently since 2004.]
[9/30/2014: i've been living in nyc for a few months now, but am still working at a hospital in CT; reverse commuting is not as fun as they make it out to be on tv. in the middle of an nyc hospital search then NP grad program next year. it's all been worth it to be able to wear pajamas to work. however, the night shift schedule has unfortunately forced me to miss some amazingly gorgeous days. sleep, i hate you, but i love you... rest in peace, bea arthur.]
[1/1/2015: working stepdown in brooklyn, living in manhattan, grad schooling this fall. currently in the market for a good coffee table. bea arthur, just because.]
[4/13/2015: found a coffee table.]
[8/31/2015: working MICU in manhattan, living in manhattan. searching for pretty stuff to hang on my barren walls. oh, and a sturdy book shelf.]
