I live for adventure! I've been in rock bands, movies, plays and on TV. I adore animals, motorcycles get my heart racing and I also have a passion for sushi and ice cream (not at the same time). I was the Queen of the 31st Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade. I am also a professional belly dancer (swords are my speciality), a Polynesian/Tahitian dance student and a full-time journalist. Here, I'll share some of my life- who I meet and where I go in the music scene, as well as music news, and any other intriguing people, places and things I come across. **PLEASE NOTE: Here I will also post excerpts from press releases I receive with information on upcoming entertainment events and news.** Welcome and keep on rockin'!
