Michele Carlo is a native New Yorker, a Nuyorican, a natural redhead, and remembers when a slice of pizza (and the NYC subway) cost 75 cents. As a storyteller, she has performed across the U.S., including Joe’s Pub, RISK! live shows and podcast, and the MOTH’s Mainstage in NYC; and has appeared on NPR (Latino USA) and PBS (Latino Americans of NY & NJ, Stories from the Stage). She is also the author of the NYC-set memoir Fish Out of Agua: My life on neither side of the (subway) tracks.
