"Live your life to the fullest!"



When did it all start?
Since I was a little girl I always wanted to be an artist, when I came to The US I moved to a small town Lawrence, MA and while I was working as a Bartender in a Lounge the owner told me they will be doing a casting for a movie if I wanted to audition for it so after that day my life changed. I booked my first audition and when I saw myself on set I decided to move to LA since then I have been here making my dreams come true.
