WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST SUCCESS?
So far starting my own theatre company.  The acting business is so tricky, you never quite feel grounded. Now I’m starting to feel like I’m in charge of my artistic life.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST FAILURE?
Expecting Los Angeles to be easy.

WHAT IS THE BIGGEST OBSTACLE YOU HAVE OVERCOME?
Being a woman in this industry period.  The pressure on women to look perfect or to behave a certain way that’s non-threatening. Being an artistic director has helped me find and embrace my true self.

2- IN STARTING YOUR OWN COMPANY?
Surround yourself with friends and remember that its always about the work!
