Broadway Baby Back in the Burg.
After a long and really rewarding career in the Performing Arts on both sides of the country and overseas, I have finally decided to return home.
St. Pete is the city where I was raised and is now one of my favorite cities EVER. I was born in the D (Detroit) but moved here in '83 with my Jamaican born dad, Southern Belle mom, and my talented little brother.
As a young person I was always involved in the performing arts. Singing, dancing, acting. The whole bit! From dance competitions to the Nutcracker, you name it I did it. I proudly rep Thespian Troupe 4637 from Canterbury School of Florida and credit the theatre program there for enriching my life is such an amazing way. Being involved in the performing arts my whole life gave me a sense of purpose, a sense of belonging, and a sense of community. It has been life-changing to experience the world through the eyes of an artist on the stage.
Now that I am back in the burg, I couldn't be more thrilled. It's a hip, vibrant, dynamic, little town that I am proud to call home. #downtownstpete
