"Rebel with a Cause"--Chicago Stage and Cinema
I am not afraid to take risks. I hustle because I am passionate about my work. I was born funny. I understand drama is part of being human. Improv is excellent at parties. I always answer with “YES AND”. Tears can be happy or sad. I get along with others.
