- Your greatest achievement:
Founding The Tig—it was seeing my passion project come to fruition, and being able to share my voice authentically. As an actor, my job is to say other people’s words believably, so to say my own words, to have created a community that people find inspiring and uplifting, and to see the doors The Tig has opened for me (specifically being able to work with UN Women), well it’s bigger than I could have ever dreamed.
- One piece of advice you would give your 18 year old self:
“Be kind to yourself.” I still remind my 33-year-old self that now.
- A secret talent we should know about:
I used to be a calligrapher. It was how I paid the bills when I was an auditioning actress, and would sit at home addressing envelopes for weddings and bar mitzvahs, dinner party place cards, you name it. I would put a white tube sock on my right hand so that natural oils from my hand didn’t get on the paper. I’m sure there was a chicer way to do it, but it certainly worked!
