"In truth, I never wanted to be a dancer. My whole ambition was to play shortstop for the Pittsburgh Pirates. However, I did become 14 and I did discover girls. And I did discover that the girls like the fellas who were good dancers... You dance love and you dance joy and you dance dreams. And I know if I can make you smile by jumping over a couple of couches or running through a rain storm, then I'll be very glad to be a song and dance man. And I won't worry that the Pittsburgh Pirates lost a hell of a shortstop."
-Gene Kelly, 1912-1996.

*It's a rainy day in Pittsburgh which made me think of Gene Kelly. I think he was so handsome! He would have been 100-years-old this August.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
