Q: You have been entertaining us on television for over 10 years, where are you from originally and what was your inspiration to want to become an actress?

A: I am originally from San Francisco, CA and on a fluke I entered the “Miss Black California Pageant” while attending California State Hayward. One of the judges who was a producer of a play that was preparing to go on tour asked me if I would be interested in auditioning for one of the parts. I did, had no idea what I was doing, but the director really liked me and they offered me a part. While traveling with the stage play, "Tellin It Like it Tiz," I was introduced to the real world of acting. The director Paul Roach started training me and fellow cast members, telling us what books to read and I was hooked. I never stopped training and learning from that moment on.

Q: Tell us how you come up with the creative idea of The Green Room?

A: I moved to Atlanta 2 years ago. Last year I started teaching acting classes out of Tree Sound Studios in Norcross. I taught using the plays and books I had brought with me from LA. When my students asked where could they go to buy the books, there was no place in Atlanta for them to go - only online. So after some research, I decided it was a must for me to provide the tools and resources these thriving, struggling actors needed, just as I needed them to help me along my journey in this business. So The Green Room became a passion for me to provide a space of nurturing, guidance and tools for those who want to pursue this career path seriously. And I wanted it to be a place where anyone who walks through the doors would feel like they just walked into their favorite Aunt's house and just want to chill out and relax a while. A place like home, away from home, to feed your mind, spirit, and soul with good food and drinks.
