PERFORMING ARTIST

As a proud member of SAG/AFTRA, I am a dancer, singer and actor with performances in
theatre, movies, TV, print ads, voice-overs and commercials. Acting performances have
included theatre and film with critical acclaim on stages in New York City and Chicago. I
also travel the world as a small ensemble and big band vocalist with performances that
focus on America’s classical music – jazz and blues. My background also includes
decades of dance training and performing; and, I now have the honor and privilege of
appearing before crowds of 20,000+ as a Chicago Bulls Swingin’ Senior Dancer.

MENTORS

DR. BARBARA 

SIZEMORE

Educator · Activist · Author

“The cry of the ghetto is being heard by a nation with its fingers in its ears.”

Dr. Barbara A. Sizemore was a powerhouse educator and activist who believed that regardless of socio-economic background, all children had the ability to learn and grow academically. Early on, she embraced the nexus between the arts and intellectual development, and was a proponent of arts and education initiatives. My third-grade teacher, she anchored me through family struggles, and became a mentor and champion. I learned these values from her and have applied them to my arts integration work with diverse populations.
