Cool Things About Cynthia

I grew up on Long Island, New York where I spent the first 19 years of my life.  My father is an accountant, comedian, and playwrite who goes by Stevie GB.  My mom is an animal lover.  My grandparents owned and operated a Carvel Ice Cream Shop.

I was in the National Honors Society and graduated in the top 3% of over 1100 students.  I enjoyed my classes in Science (especially Biology), English (creative writing), and any arts (interior design, textiles, and media arts).

As a kid, I took lessons for Singing, Piano, Banjo, Clarinet, Irish Step Dancing, Jazz, Acting, and Horseback Riding.

I volunteered for four years fostering and taking care of kittens and cats for adoption.  I've also raised mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, rats, chickens, birds, fish, and cats of my own as well as owned and trained dogs.

I sewed wool, leather, and shearling coats sold all over the east coast for a former professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC.

I worked in a garage doing oil changes, flushes, and tire rotations.

I've costumed and managed sets and props for two Off-Broadway productions of Vampires Suck and Death Here in New York CIty as well as a short film called The Tome.

I was married for 11 years.

I drove the truck at Kilimanjaro Safari at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Florida while performing and teaching guests about the wildlife, nature, and conservation efforts in Africa.

I've sewn and created well over 500 projects which have been sold all over the US, Canada, Europe, and even Australia.

When I sold my house, I bought a truck and a 26 foot travel trailer.  I lived in the trailer full time for a year and a half and took it from Florida to Maine to Kentucky (for the solar eclipse in 2017), and back to Florida over the course of 9 months.  I also spent a year staying in AirBnBs in Colorado and Florida.

I've worked Renaissance Faires and played Amtgard since 2003. (I always play a Druid in any game that allows me to)

I picked up a ukulele in 2005 and have performed live on stage in New York and busked all over America.  I now have 3 ukuleles - My first one (a concert ukulele named Captain Kidd), my favorite one (a vintage 1920's ukulele named Admiral Snow (ask me about the story of this one!)), and my Emergency Car Ukulele For Ukulele Emergencies (it's a real thing).  

I've performed improv professionally as a Hostess, Hidden Actor, as well as the Detective in the Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Show.

And I've helped to build and manage operations of multiple start-ups including a lead generating business, a trading company, a music event app, a language learning app called Rype, and a book-video app called Pulsing.
