Whadda Know…

  • I rode the NYC subway by myself from the age of 8. I was a latch-key kid and in charge of caring for my kid brother until Mom got home from work.
  • I am from the Boogie Down (BX) stand up, a New York City Girl through and through. I don’t have a Nu Yawk accent unless saying certain words.
  • I can rarely have a conversation without including food somehow, someway.
  • I am HIP HOP (old skool puleez), I live for House music and yes, I still roller skate.
  • I use slang vernacular interchangeably with the Queen’s English(ish) purely, because it is fun.
  • I cuss like a sailor and all of his/her friends. (shrugs)
  • My birthday month is March.
  • I am a true fashionista, I was a fashion forecaster, colorist, and merchandiser in the fashion industry in NYC.
  • I am a whole body laugher and sometimes incorporate snorting.
  • I thoroughly enjoy food…mostly all of it.
  • I have sold Kirby vacuum cleaners door to door for exactly one week.
  • I met my husband in Jamaica while we were both on vacation. Stella, who? (How Stella Got Her Groove Back) At the time, he lived in the Bronx and I lived in Harlem. We now live in the Atlanta area with houseplants and an earthbox.
