It all started when a 14 year old submitted a poem from her journal to a teen magazine. The rest is, well, you get the idea.
KaZ was in the entertainment industry for 35+ years.
She began performing in musical comedies and writing in New York at age 14.
Throughout her career KaZ was a singer, dancer, actor, stunt performer, professional water skier, choreographer, casting director, television producer, artistic director, stage director, stage producer, voice-over artist and director, circus artist, and stunt coach.
After her first publication KaZ went on to write for television, published and produced plays and music, in books, for hard copy and online magazines, in journals, anthologies, collections and popular websites.
She began studying meditation in 1991 and went on to certify as a master meditation instructor and Qigong instructor.
KaZ was also co-owner of a television production company, two restaurants, a fitness center, and the owner of a cinema.
Today, she focuses on poetry in several styles, including more obscure genres, and spoken word, all reflecting nature and the human condition. She loves words and is a bit of a “word tyrant”. Regardless she has been sought out to write for many publications.
Currently, KaZ is the “poet in residence” for The Pro-Age Woman Magazine.
KaZ is also a longtime nature and wildlife conservationist.
She will also soon be teaching meditation online for CondorConnect, a new online community for the mind, body and being. Will keep you posted.
