Anything less than mad, passionate, extraodinary love is a waste of your time. There are too many ordinary things in life, love shouldn't be one of them.
Dream For An Insomniac
"Don't be distracted by criticism. Remember the only taste of success some people have is when they take a bite out of you."
- Zig Ziglar
"Don't let the world outside cheapen your gift."
- Being Julia
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: The unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
- George Bernard Shaw
Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.
"I don't mind being held to a higher standard. I mind being held to a lower one."
The West Wing
"Envy is ignorance. Imitation is suicide."
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
Obedient women rarely make history.
I am a living film noir vixen. I am the half told tale of big dreams and heartbreak seduced by the dark side. I haunt Hollywood by day chasing down my fantasies and by night I lurk the shadows in vintage attire, alternative couture, stockings, heels, feathers and more Swarovski crystals than a chorus of showgirls.
I can't be neatly packaged save as a creative. I was born to be a storyteller, be that through the written word or the artistry of a moment marked out on a stage or, perhaps, captured on film. And I'm blonde. Hitchcock blonde.
My interest and professional accomplishments cross over frenetically and include film, stage, TV, acting, modeling, singing and dancing. I've also written, edited publications, and been a freelance critic. I'm a lover of film noir, fetish, burlesque, female power, and Shakespeare. It may be eclectic but it is what makes me who I am and touches every one of my artistic endeavors. I own a production company named Hollywood Babylon Productions.
