Something Something Noelle Gizzi

Something Something Noelle Gizzi

Noelle Gizzi links

You wanted to learn more? How sweet! By now you probably know the professional scoop--she's an actress, she's a writer...but what else is there to be known? Who is Noelle Gizzi? 


Noelle grew up in Randolph, New Jersey, where she first got a taste of performing in the Fernbrook Elementary School talent show (a performance of which IS on YouTube, by the way). Noelle also developed her love of literature during elementary school, during which she devoured the Harry Potter series along with many other books. Noelle likes to joke that she "got smart on accident" after her third grade teacher neglected to put her in a reading group and then let her join the coveted "green group." Noelle had big shoes to fill from then on, being in the green group. That was the smart kid group!

Noelle's childhood was largely unhappy due to factors both internal and external. Her home life was unfortunate, and she was diagnosed with depression at an extremely young age (the pictures she drew of coffins cued in the kindergarten teachers). Part of the reason Noelle was so drawn to theatre was because she was so massively unhappy. For a little while, she was able to be somebody else. For a moment, she didn't have to be Noelle Gizzi. Along the way she fell in love with the art, and one of her main goals as a performer is to bring joy to people who need it. If she can make one sad person chuckle, then that will be enough. 

Despite her father's warnings that acting should only be a hobby, Noelle went on to study acting in college and earn her BA in Theatre Arts from Ramapo College of New Jersey. She had stopped seeing her father by age fourteen, so he didn't have much say over her major anyway. Look out world--she's not taking no for an answer!

Noelle is also a big lover of dairy products, cats, cool pens, the color yellow, Harry Styles, and crafting. She thanks you for reading this far, and wishes you health and good cheer!

Something Something about Dr. David Smith

Something Something about Dr. David Smith

David W. Smith MD, ACP, BS (Chemistry), Board Certified (Internal Medicine Specialist), recognized as a visiting scientist for both The Human Performance Laboratory for the Division of Sports Medicine at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the North Shore Division of Neurosurgery and North Shore Neurological Institute, Chicago Illinois. Over his 30-year medical career, he served as Chief of Medicine at Reid Hospital and Healthcare Services. In addition, he founded commercial companies for developing his innovative product concepts XennovateMedical LLC, TBI Innovations LLC, and Delta Chase LLC.

As Chief Science Officer, he has served as lead design and medical education consultant to GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), a $90B+ Pharmaceutical and Healthcare company, GENTEX Corp, the largest manufacturer of USAF helmets, and Materials Modification Inc., nano–materials and coating pioneer to the military complex.

Consistent with his Internal Medicine credentials, Dr. Smith has Intellectual Property and peer-reviewed publications in diverse fields of science, providing him with a unique perspective in overcoming a broad spectrum of significant medical paradigms. Specifically, his solid background in analytical chemistry (with an added emphasis in physics), combined with his medical degree and internal medical career, allowed him to bring a better understanding of energy interactions and impartations to the human body, which has proven particularly useful in the study of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Dr. Smith discovered and then pioneered “SLOSH Theory,” which represents the basis of his Q-Collar invention for humans designed to mitigate SLOSH energy absorption by the soft tissues of the brain, proven to reduce the risk of brain damage from traumatic events (first product authorized by the FDA for this purpose). Further, he co-authored with Julian Bailes MD, a world-renowned neurosurgeon, a presentation on “The Physics of Traumatic Brain Injury-Revisited,” delivered at the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, Annual Meeting, San Diego, CA, Sept 2016. This venue represents the largest gathering of Neurosurgeons and Brain Injury Specialists worldwide. This event provided the backdrop for Dr. Smith’s disclosure of his latest thinking on how “cavitation” explains how the physics of a concussive wave can produce the chemistry of a TBI.

In his scientific role with Xennovate Medical, he presented several novel battlefield dressings to the Department of the Army Research Lab (DARPA) at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Aberdeen, MD. Dr. Smith assisted Gentex Corp, who was successfully awarded a $90M contract in the field of mitigating the forces involved in human ejections from supersonic aircraft. He was the lead scientist in Xennovate’s two-year funding effort with DARPA’s Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JEIDDO).

Something Something about Eric Sande

Something Something about Eric Sande

The Real King Of Miami, Author Tells True Life Counterpart To Films & Shows such as Savages, Scarface, and Snowfall.

Eric befriended Ray during his life imprisonment, and before his death, Ray became a father figure to him. Eric recorded the many colorful, harrowing, glamorous, and bone-chilling stories Ray told him about his life in crime. Eric’s upcoming book recalling his time with Ray, King of Miami, is a factual tale of how gangsters really lived and the fallout from the drug wars, a true real-life counterpart to films and shows such as Blow, Goodfellas, Savages, Scarface, Ozark, Narcos and Snowfall.  Eric is currently available for interviews.Like Ray Liotta’s character in Goodfellas, Eric Curtis Sande grew up idolizing the gangsters and drug dealers who ran his suburban neighborhood outside of Miami.  In the glamorous 1980s in South Florida, cocaine and other drugs were everywhere.  These dealers seemed to have all the yachts, the luxury cars, and the gorgeous women they could want.  Even Eric’s father, who hated drugs so much he told him he would kill him if he ever used, became a drug dealer — that’s how the good money was.  Eric spent much of his childhood with his father incarcerated for dealing. Eric’s biggest neighborhood hero, a local legend, was Ray “Little Ray’ Thompson, a real-life Scarface and drug kingpin, whose luxury yachts, often piloted by decoy seniors, brought in an estimated over 2 million pounds of marijuana into Ft. Lauderdale, one of the largest marijuana smuggling operations ever known to the feds.  Ray was captured by the FBI and imprisoned for life for multiple murders and assassinations.
