I currently study at Joshua Lebar studios and
received my B.A. at UCLA's school of Theater, Film and
Television, and trained at BADA (the British American
Academy of Dramatic Arts), Academia Dell'Arte in Italy,
and South Coast Repertory.
Read my Voyage LA Article here!
Victoria (like the queen) Rafael (like
the artist but with an f). *Queen and artist reference
to hopefully differentiate from Veronica Sawyer, a
fair badass comparison but that's not my name...
Winona & Alison Bri are fair comparisons though if
we need them. I'm told comparisons are easy for the
business people but I'm also told to be yourself,
everyone else is already taken. What a conundrum.
I asked my best friend if I should write all this and
she said no one reads it. They just look at the pictures...
I'm currently working on a short trilogy for a proof
of concept to pitch to studios as a feature. I dream
of Shakespeare and foreign films in my spare time. I adore acting and film techniques stemming from Stanislavski,
Alexander Technique, French New Wave, Italian Neo-Realism, and The Twilight Zone. Yes to tap dancing, pugs, tango, red lipstick, french and the Charleston.
