Born in 1978 in Norwalk, CT I am Michelle Santagate. I am proud of who I am. I’ve fought for every inch of it. Everyday I wake up I endeavor to be better then the day before. My earliest memories of myself are linked with the knowledge that I am an actress, I am a writer and I don’t separate any of my identity from those realities. In fact my identity relies on them. In 2000 my son was born and thus my rebirth began. Performance was my first love. My son is the love of my life. Thank God my heart is big enough for both.
