I was born in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands and currently a long time resident of Bronx, New York. I hold an MPA from John Jay College of Criminal Justice and have 24 credits towards my Ph.d. I once walked/modeled for Gloria Vanderbilt, but due to my diminutive height, my modeling career was never fully realized. I'm also a former singer, dancer and actress/extra. As a certified producer and director with a small entertainment company, from time to time, I direct and produce short digital films for my local cable tv station BRONXNET, ch 68. I'm also a writer and self-publisher, I submit articles monthly for BROWNSISTA online magazine and Writer's World, a monthly newsletter based in Queens, New York. I'm also working on my second novel to be completed soon.
