Q: Who are you?
A: I’m a bitch, I’m a lover, I’m a child, I’m a mother, I’m a sinner, I’m a saint, and I do not feel ashamed. I’m your hell, I’m your dream, I’m nothing in between. You know you wouldn’t want it any other way

Q: Tell us about your playlist.
A: I asked you for a theme, you said “sex”, so I put together a mix of songs that I find sexy. I was stoned and might have gotten a bit carried away but hey, here is over 4hours of music for you!

Q: What are you working on right now?
A: I’m currently filming a Netflix mini series about the fashion designer Halston in which I play Elsa Peretti. I also produced a documentary about the maternal health crisis called “Born Free” that we are currently finding a home for so stay tuned.

Q: What are you working on next?
A: I wrote a short film that I’m hoping to direct next year and I am developing a feature as well.

Q: What is the best story from a set or performance?
A: I was dancing in the crowd at a show during a festival, it was summer so it was still light out, and I kept thinking the singer was looking straight at me but thought “nah that’s impossible” but after the show I was getting ice cream with my sister and he walked over to us and said to me “we danced together tonight”.  To this day, this remains the best pick up line anyone has ever said to me.

Q: What is the best sound?
A: The sounds of a storm, heavy rain, thunder, wind, the whole shebang. Also fireworks.

Q: What is your favorite part of your creative process?
A: To be honest all of it. Even when I hate it, I love it because thats what i chose to do. The collaborative aspect, the learning, the part where you’re just in it and it flows, the bursts of ideas… all of that wouldn’t be the same without the doubt, the waiting, the anxiety, the writer’s block or however else you wanna call that, the rejection, etc etc

Q: What was the last thing that made you laugh really hard?
