I was born and raised in an Italian-Canadian family in Montreal to Italian parents, both born in Italy. When they came to Canada, my father opened a business and worked as a mechanic. My mother worked as a teacher for the English Montreal School Board.
I lived a very controlled life by my mother from childhood through to my early twenties. I was instructed to maintain a sense of obedience within a traditional Italian family and instructed by my mother to follow in her footsteps and become a teacher.
However, my intention was to pursue a milieu that could demonstrate my essence of being unique, energetic, and bring about a sense of self-awareness. Consequently, I learned how to express myself through art and writing, whereby my emotions could be salvaged through a piece of art that was familiar to me and I could frequently invent myself with new ideas.
This realization spiraled much ambition, especially in my twenties when I learned that acting was a creative way to outwardly display my qualities and personality. This inspired my desire to innovate and challenge myself. Therefore, I attended private acting classes and monologue and scene studies, which elevated my understanding about what motivates and drives an individual to act and think certain ways. The challenge intrigues me still, whereby acting is my mode of self-expression.
I participated in various films and model gigs which introduced me to diversity and observation of the world around me. This awareness continues to allow me to put my personal skills at the service of a creative process. My inspiration is further supported by a loving husband and our beautiful daughter.
