About the Director
Growing up I was surrounded by a loving, and supportive family. I’m a native to the country lifestyle, surrounded by a wildlife refuge and the farm land of New Jersey, where our version of entertainment was watching wildlife in the backyard, playing in the creek, or the time someones cows got loose and wandered through town, and our version of traffic was sitting behind a tractor on a backroad. Throughout elementary school I participated in various sports such as soccer, basketball, and archery, but eventually started dancing and acting. I started with a single acrobatics class, but quickly expanded. Within a few short years I was taking over 7 classes a week in basically every style I could, and joined the after school theater program, being inducted into the national thespian society. Since then my passion for the performing arts has continued to grow. As I moved into high school, at the age of 16, I began to DJ events under the guidance of my uncle. It was my first job and I loved it.
Besides my involvement in the performing arts, I enjoyed volunteering at various fundraising events. At a young age, I hoped to make a difference. I know I can’t change the world, but each day I set out to try and make someone’s day. During my early college years, I discovered one of the best ways to do this was to help children. My mom was the director of a preschool, and I began using the experience I had in dance and as a DJ to create dance parties for the kids. Seeing the joy it brought to their faces only added to my enjoyment of the performing arts. Dancing helps us forget any troubles that we may be facing, and brings joy to our life even if it’s just for a moment. Eventually, I became a dance instructor at a local studio and still teach various forms of dance to this day. I love the idea of making education fun and providing new types of learning experiences.
Besides teaching, I also gained experience on the technical side of the entertainment industry. I have worked across the tri-state area as a theater technician, designer, consultant, stage manager, and production manager for over 300 events ranging in a wide variety of theatrical productions, fashion shows, and concerts.
Over the years, I wanted to find a way to combine my love for teaching with all my behind-the-scenes knowledge. I began working for dance competitions, conventions, and professional dance companies. This next step in my journey meant creating a new production company specializing in dance events.
I created Front Row Talent to enhance the experiences associated with dance and the performing arts. I want to form workshops within dance studios/schools, events, and shows that give people a rush of excitement–the same rush that comes from being in the front row of a show or concert. Performances aren’t just for the performers. Everyone should feel like a rock star. Our workshops will provide a more individualized approach and VIP treatment of the attendees.
On top of our mission to produce great, high-quality events, we are motivated to give back. Each year, we will make contributions to various charities to help those in need.
