Her mix of strength and vulnerability is beautiful to see in a young woman.”
Open, emotionally free, and honest.”
Fiery. Strong. Unapologetically fierce.”
I'm drawn to wild feminine in all the women I play. I love playing the athlete, the explorer, the fighter, the protector, the spirit-seeker, the leader, the enthusiast; the essential heroine. From Saint Joan to Annie Sullivan, I want to tell the stories of people in ordinary circumstances who do extraordinary things. I want to tell the stories of people who were fighters; who fought for their family, their voice, the freedom of another- for love.
My hope is that I can achieve this with humorous and socially-conscious sensibilities.
Thanks for visiting!
