Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m fire-y. In a warm, generous, passionate way (not a burn your
house down kind of way). My grandmother used to whisper to me,
"Mamehlah, you are an old soul with a young spirit." She was right.
I am unabashedly outgoing and friendly without reserve. But I also
find moments of quiet and thoughtful introversion nourishing.
Balance is my dear friend and I respect the journey to finding
I love throwing parties, coconut ice cream, Lillet Blanc, and
Jameson on the rocks. I love going to foodie meccas for intricate
nibbles in strange decorative arrangements as much as grabbing an
awesomely messy burger.
I take care with the little things. My way of practicing Tikun Olam
is to truly listen and be present for not only those I love, but
strangers as well.
I’m a great keeper of secrets. I’m wild about animals (woo hoo
dogs!) and equally wild about vintage clothing
(ahhhh...shoes!). I have really little feet and a squeaky
I seek the things in a conversation that others miss. Laughter is
my favorite kind of music, especially if it is from the belly and
accompanied by dancing. I enjoy getting to know people. This
includes my adorable parents, my magical friends, and the lovely
staff at the drycleaners.
I stand up for the elderly on the train. Or anyone who looks like
they've had a bad day. I stop to listen to jazz musicians in the
park, even when I’m in a hurry.
I read a lot. Just finished Rilke’s Letters to a Young Poet. I
can’t stop thinking about it.
I’ve reached the point in my life where understanding myself and
others comes before proving a point. I'm looking for an infinitely
kind, solid rock to my fire, who is still ridiculously fun,
positive and excited about each day as its own treasure.
Performing in the theater feels like home. I adore salsa dancing,
and once upon a time, I did demonstrations at a salsa club in
Florida. Along with being a professional dancer (musical theater,
modern) I’m a published arts journalist. I’m fortunate to have
interviewed living legends in my industry.
I take risks, random photos, and dance class every day. I believe
in our infinite potential for change and that kindess is never
inappropriate. Most importantly, I’m a big fan of Love.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Loving each day as a dancer/singer/actor (refuse to use the term
triple threat!) and arts journalist, writing for magazines like
Time Out NY, Dance Magazine and TDF.org. Otherwise, tons of
wandering, reading, looking at where and how sunlight lives in
dappled trees, and watching my favorite pups in the dog park.
Trying to add positive creativity and insight into the world. Phew.
And maybe enjoy a Jameson after all that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Laughing really loudly.
Encouraging those around me to feel safe expressing themselves
Dancing, onstage, in clubs or in my room alone.
Giggling at myself and silly things around me in our ridiculous
