To say I am just an entertainer is misleading when I am also a Writer-Editor-and have been a Publisher. Was the Staff Writer for International Assn of Corporate Entertainment Producers & am a Contributing Writer-Editor for Prevue Magazine. I owned the leading (and much awarded) Middle Eastern Dance & Culture Magazine in the world for 14 years, and also have co-owned an entertainment industry newsletter since 1986. Have written and edited professionally since the age of 12. As for entertainment, it was a Talent Agent from Disney who recognized my abilities and comic flare (ok, and outrageous costuming that began accumulating from many years of gypsy belly dancing). Even though I'd been raised among family who read, I didn't understand until then that this was a gift that not everyone recognized and utilized. That was when the Natasha stage alias was born and since then, took on a life of its own. I have read thousands upon thousands, been written about and write about my experience(s). Now I do speeches, workshops, trade shows, and many, many parties. Love what I do, and want to leave the guests wanting more of my positive, enthusiastic energy along with my insights into their personalities.
