Putting the imp back in imperious...

Because my life is a performance art work in progress, and dignity is overrated. Local to DC? Come out and join in the shenanigans!

Burlesque Performer, Chanteuse. Force of Nature.

The perfect storm of high femme and lowbrow, I’m the velvet-voiced vamp with the dangerous curves who’s hell on heels. As Diva Darling, I perform in the DC-Baltimore variety scene with neo-burlesque acts and cabaret vocals.

Femme de Plume

Wordy, nerdy, dirty, full of useful information and useless trivia, and just a little bit gonzo– as a freelance writer, I like to have my way with words.
