who am i?

I am an actor, producer, writer, singer, founder of Ms. In The Biz.  I’ve been a writer since I was young and my favorite form of the written word is poetry.


20th century poets have always been my favorite. T.S. Eliot, e.e. cummings… and in this era I’ve always been in love with Leonard Cohen. His collection “Stranger Music” is one of the most amazing books ever put together; a true collection of heart wrenching beautiful emotions.  Hence, the name of this site. “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”  from Leonard Cohen’s “Anthem” is one of my favorite lines ever written.

This is a small collection of some of my work over the years. From time to time I’ll be updating this page with new poems. If you’re interested in getting updates, please “follow my musings” by clicking the “follow” button above my photo in the top right corner of this site.  And if you are interested to learn more about me, head on over to my official site and follow me on twitter and instagram.

Much love  xoxoxox hels
