I've been around the entertainment industry my whole life. My family owned a restaurant night club in Milwaukee that was regarded as one of the most romantic dining experiences in the country. We had live musicians, belly dancers, flamenco, and other performances.
I am the hybrid of an artistic European father and an analytical mother. My father was a true renaissance man, spoke 4 languages, sang, played guitar, chef, carpenter, oil painter, and chronic flirt. I have not made time to develop all those skills but I definitely received the genetic gifts with which to do them. I have an artist aesthetic which has shaped my own interests.
My mother's contribution has lead me be quite analytical and the hybridization allows me to stay calm, logical, and rational in intense situations and find creative, sometimes literal out-of-the-box solutions, to problems.
In school, my credits were split between Theatre, Business, and Psychology. I finished my BA in Theatre and would like to take the last two classes I need to finish up my psych major but my current travel schedule won't allow it.
