Creative Artist

Teresa is a multi-talented artist in the fields of music, film, tv, screenwriting, interior decorating, perfume design, wardrobe & image consulting, package design, interface design, culinary arts, menu planning, Feng Shui design, and more. Since being Class Artist in Kindergarten, to being Class Choreographer in High School, Teresa has been filled with creative vision since her earliest years. “I remember developing an aptitude for photographic composition from my family’s on-going love of photography. We would discuss what makes a beautiful image, capturing a moment to savor.

During her college years, Teresa decided to studied Liberal & Expressive Arts, in order to combine the conceptual with the emotional. This felt very innovative for her. “Focusing on Dance allowed me to apply all that I had been learning. ‘Wisdom from the chaos’ was an on-going theme.” Teresa’s college years took her from Baltimore to Sonoma to France to San Rafael to San Francisco. Her love of learning continues to this day.

After college, Teresa followed her artistic vision to produce meditation videos, music videos, dance concerts, interactive theater, and all kinds of musical productions. Today, she is compiling some of her best works for public viewing. Stay tuned for exhibits, books, concerts, and more. Today, more than ever, artists’ voices are helping to educate and unify people. Music, film, tv, and literature are powerful tools to enlighten the masses. But, we must choose this.

Leadership

“When I was in the Girls Scouts, I attended a Leadership Training. Though I was only 9, I was being taught leadership skills. My mom had encouraged me. I love it. We planned a spaghetti dinner, by starting at the finish line and working our way back.

“After that, I hosted fundraisers and got a thrill by feeling my ability to help others. There were so many people in need, and I did something about it.

“Going to study in a foreign country was also a boost for my leadership skills. Thinking carefully about my speech as I learned to speak their language was very insightful. Usually only the children had the patience to listen as I stumbled through things.

“As I moved from job to job, working my way through layers of responsibility, I have had a voracious appetite for both learning group dynamics and managing the many aspects of team building. Developing congruent messages, getting a broader perspective on what’s going on in the world, comparing local and global issues, it has always been fascinating.”

Dance Classes

I started dancing when I was 9. Mom introduced me to ballet, tap, and toe lessons. Miss Arlene was my wonderful teacher. She inspired me so well. I continued with Miss Pat when Miss Arlene stopped teaching.

In high school I seemed to choreograph dances every year for Field Day, an annual event we had. I began college level dance classes while still in high school. Dance was my major when I did go off to college, in California.

Dance Therapy didn’t feel quite right. I preferred spending my energy in choreography, dance history, and performance. New York, San Francisco, Paris, Montpellier, Napa, Baltimore, Santa Cruz, Los Angeles, San Diego, some of the places I’ve danced or performed.

Family Matters

My parents came from two different coasts in the US. Both their families came from Europe — Italy and the United Kingdom. They met in Japan, had two of my elder brothers, and then moved to the SF Bay Area, where they had my other brother and me.

I was only 9 months when dad got transferred to Manhattan, as we wanted to be closer to mom’s parents, since dad’s folks had now passed over. I don’t have any memories from that time, but I know that I feel California is my home. All growing up, from the time I visited again when I was 13, I knew I was going to live there, where people seem so nice. Now, I’ve lived longer in the Bay Area than anywhere else. It still feels like home.
