A little bit about me..

 

I am currently living in Los Angeles, pursuing my career in theater, film, and television and leading acting, yoga, and voice workshops across the globe. 

As a member of The SITI Company, I played Grace Kumalo and Mrs. Mkize in Lost in the Stars, directed by Anne Bogart in collaboration with the LA Opera and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra at Royce Hall in January of 2017. I am so excited to reunite with Anne and SITI Co. in 2018 for the theater is a blank page at Royce Hall in April and The Bacchae at the Getty Villa and The Brooklyn Academy of Music in the fall. 

I completed my MFA in Acting at UCLA, my Bachelor of Arts in Drama at Spelman College and the British American Drama Academy, and my Yoga Teacher Training with Modo Yoga International. These trainings, combined with life experience are merging beautifully into a unique and powerful path.

As an instructor and educator, I've taught acting and performance at UCLA, led acting workshops at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa, and coached public speakers who are sharing their passions with the world.

I am so honored to have received awards and fellowships from Jack Nicholson, Mariska Hargitay, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Cirque Du Soleil, and The Black Women Film Network. 

My reps at Kyle Fritz Management and Pakula/King & Associates are the bomb, and my parents, family, tribe, and ancestors are magical. 

Please visit the philanthropy page and donate to a cause, and come practice some yoga with me at one of my upcoming classes!

Peace, love, and namasté,
