Tell us a little more about how you first got into acting!

I came to LA at 21 not knowing a single soul.

I actually lived in the Days Inn for two weeks in Sherman Oaks when I first arrived and watched Halle Berry win the Oscar there.

I didn't know anything about LA but hit the ground running.

My first job was as an original Pussycat Doll in the burlesque show before to became a worldwide phenomenon and girl group.

I was doing music videos to pay the bills but I really wanted to act.

I was in an independent film not long after I arrived and there I met my partner who I would go on to make three features and an award winning doc.

My first film was titled "IOWA" and I was starring in it and producing it.

I didn't know anything about producing but worked every day finding out how to do it.

At that time, bookstores were still the number one place to go to get information and the library.

I read as much as I could about making a film and the things I would need to do to produce it.
