"Chicago has a sea of talent many of whom I've had an opportunity to work with who are not working now. I worked in theater constantly before being injured in a terrible car accident in 2013. It would have left me out of work and on the couch if not for cabaret. There are many ways to get the outlet you need if you are an artist. I continued my creativity on cruches by sharing myself at Davenport's Piano Bar where many became inspired and sharing themselves too. This is what inspired me to help elevate more off the couch and back on stage."
