About me…

I have been blessed to do what I love and love what I do, and given the courage to follow my crazy dreams. My mentality is to never give up. My passion is to know and celebrate mankind through art and exploration of people’s stories, emotions and motives. As an actor, I have a never ending desire to experience, understand and communicate. These instincts have led me into different fields of expressing myself – music (playing piano and guitar and songwriting), modeling, modern dance, as well as learning as much as I can about the world through extensive traveling, constant education and volunteer work. I am happy as long as the communication between myself and the world is flowing.

In cultivating my acting skill in such a manner of living, I have developed my own understanding of acting – it is trusting your instrument. It is following the impulse of inspiration for which a mental and physical relaxation is necessary, so that the body becomes a channel.
