A New Yorker by birth, she combined a Comparative Literature Major at Columbia University's School of General Studies with acting studies at Herbert Berghof Studio. Later she moved to Paris where took voice lessons, sang Blues, and worked as film editor of documentaries. In 1991 she entered the professional Flamenco world in Spain by founding Pureza, the production company whose first creation was a recording of prestigious singer Calixto Sánchez, followed, in 1992, by a recording by another well-known artist José el de la Tomasa. The show "El Flamenco Es Vida" followed, in 1993, and travelled to Córdoba, Seville, Mont-de-Marsan, Bordeaux, and Miami. At this moment the idea of the creation of a foundation dedicated to the conservation and to the propagation of Flamenco as an art form started to come to life.
