Mystery is precisely the quality an artist should have. Regardless- here's a little insight on who I am.
I blame Howard Stern's movie, Private Parts (1997), Headbangers Ball (MTV), and Uranium (Fuse) for my love affair with the profession of the Video Jockey. I started my career in entertainment at the age of 17 when I signed up to write the school's music column during my studies at UNCW at $10 an article. From there, I started working at Fuse, behind the scenes, learning everything I could about music television just before it notoriously crashed and burned. Unsuccessful at becoming a VJ, I pushed on as a full-time actor (with the occasional modeling gig, singing for metal bands, and hosting shows for Fangoria and Comcast). My New York life was rich and full with a variety of entertainment gigs that made me the artist I am today. At my core, I have always tied in my identity with my profession as an entertainer above all else. So here I am. If you want to know more, just ask. I have many, many stories to tell.
