All of my life, I have been a fan of movies, television, plays, music and other performances. Many times I wished to tell a story of some grand adventure or to be a part of one. As a child, my parents have taken me to the movies where I have seen a man fly (Superman), humans in space (The Black Hole, Star Wars, Star Trek), and a host of other different movies and animations. From that point on, my imagination shined like a beacon in the dark! My schoolmates and teachers all said the same thing, "You need to be a writer!" I love telling stories as well as seeing and experiencing them.
At age 40, I am achieving the lifelong dream of storytelling. I feel if anyone should tell a story, you should connect not only with the characters but with the readers as well. Stories can entertain, teach a lesson or inspire you to follow your dreams. Being a lifelong New Yorker, I have been through many different situations and survived. Every day when a person can get up and do something, it is not only a blessing but an adventure of some sort worth of a story to tell. Another lifelong ambition is to travel the world, meet people and experience different cultures. When I come home I will have another story to tell or two.
Even though I work full-time, I enjoy many extra-circular activities: mentoring/teaching, watching movies, reading, listening to music (Jazz, Chill-Out and R&B being the favorite genres), doing graphic designs and spending time with friends and family. Every day I get up (being very thankful for that) to do the best I can and keep moving forward. Where will my path lead? To a brighter future of life experiences! And in so doing, I will have more stories to share.
Thank you for your support and stay tuned for more upcoming stories!
