So many careers, so little time! Author Lisa Di Vita was a theatre actress/singer/dancer for 12 years, performing in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Hawaii, Boston, Las Vegas and many other cities; in shows such as "A Chorus Line," "Shenandoah," "The Sound of Music," and "Fiddler on the Roof," but her first and favorite professional credit was performing with the Bolshoi Ballet in San Francisco when she was nine years old.
With very little logic, Di Vita eventually made her way into Los Angeles sports radio as an on air personality, interviewing athletes, delivering editorials and supplying color commentary for a televised boxing show. She served as president of the Southern CA Sports Broadcasters.
Di Vita's quirkier forays include helping train dolphins for a university project in Hawaii, studying Shaolin Kenpo for 13 years and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for four years and singing the national anthem at nearly every sports venue in Southern California.
Having written for much of her life, contributing to the LA Press Club Magazine, Daily News, Los Angeles Dodgers Game Day, and the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, writing full time has seemed like a seamless evolution.
