With Los Angeles as my home base, I am thriving in my career as an artist, and leading acting, yoga, and voice workshops across the globe. I completed my MFA in Acting at UCLA's School of Theater, Film, and Television, my Bachelor of Arts in Drama at Spelman College and the British American Drama Academy, and my Yoga Teacher Training at Modo Yoga International. These trainings, combined with life experience are merging beautifully into a unique and powerful path.
In the midst of Pilot Season auditions, I am currently preparing to perform in the theater is a blank page at Royce Hall in April and May, and The Bacchae at the Getty Villa and The Brooklyn Academy of Music from August through October with the incredible SITI Company, under the direction of Anne Bogart. 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.
As an instructor and educator, I've taught Acting, History of Acting in Film, and History of Theater at UCLA and the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa, and I continue to coach 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 yoga at one of my upcoming classes!
Peace, love, and namasté,
