Welcome to my little corner of the internet! It is a pleasure to have you here and I am so grateful that you have chosen to spend some time getting to know more about me. I am a Philadelphia-based drag performer, a classically trained vocalist, a songwriter, an activist, a husband, mama to the cutest little Yorkshire Terrier ever, a music teacher and lover of all things sparkly.
Whether you are here to check my performance schedule, see what projects I’m currently working on or read my latest blog post, I hope you enjoy my internet home and find what you are looking for. Make sure you go to the “Follow Me” section at the bottom of the page to subscribe to my Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Youtube channels.
