Hi, I’m glad you found my little corner of the internet!
I’ve been called “feisty and passionate”, and I believe that is an accurate statement.
I travel often, even though I’m afraid of flying.
My favorite words are Compassion, Courage, and Grace.
My perfect day would be spent cozied up in my fuzzy robe, baking scones, and reading a good book.
I take being an actor and filmmaker seriously. The responsibility bestowed upon storytellers is a big one, which is one of the reasons I created my blog. You can read about my creative process and projects there. My hope is that my trials and tribulations can be helpful to those on similar paths.
