You are relatively new to the Lower Depth community. What inspired you to take on the awesome job of being on the board of the rapidly growing Lower Depth Theatre Ensemble?
I am inspired by Jason and Yvonne’s commitment to building a legacy not only for their family, but for the arts community at large. Jason and Yvonne have demonstrated a strong commitment to providing opportunities to those in the creative space, to continue the process of telling stories that matter.
How were you introduced to the arts? What is your favorite memory?
I was first introduced to the arts through music, and later dance, both by participating as a performer and by having the blessing of growing up in the entertainment industry. I have now made it my career. I have been fortunate to have spent a lifetime surrounded by beauty and uniqueness. There was no other path for me to follow.
Why do you think the work that Lower Depth is doing is important to the Los Angeles Community?
Legacy matters to me. It is important to provide a forum for the continued creation of material that has meaning, not only to the artists who bring it to life, but to the audience who will remain edified by the effort.
