Fordham University graduate (B.A. - Communications - English, Minor), Hofstra University graduate (M.A. - Creative Arts Therapy). Born in New Orleans, LA, raised in Denver, CO with my parents and four siblings. I'm the mother of Brandon Alexander, a handsome teenager with a golden heart, noble character, and infectious sense of humor. (as well as an awesome skateboarder).
I've lived in New York over ten years and have enjoyed every moment. It's the pace and the diversity of this city that's so addictive: the theatre, the shopping, the restaurants, and the entertainment are second to none!
I enjoy cooking (mostly Creole dishes as well as pasta/Italian). When I'm not cooking, I enjoy reading and I'm an advid lover of music!! Interior decorating (in my home and for others) is also a passion (wallpapering, painting, arranging and/or re-arranging a space is fascinating, not to mention reveling in the end results).
Hosting and being of service to others is my nature. I look forward to meeting you, welcoming you into my home and assisting you create warm memories during your New York experience!
