  1. Swimming - the repetitive motion and meditative breathing help me calm any "voices" that may want to discourage me from pursuing my passions. I try to lap swim 4 days out of the week, and I taught myself very late in my life. You can ALWAYS start something new.

  2. Drag Race - and all spinoff podcasts, shows and brunches. Drag is a great reminder to not take oneself too seriously. I also think it's where the funniest comedians who dont perform "stand up" are hiding out, beneath a mountain of wigs and lashes. Laughter is the BEST everything.

  3. Julia Bianco Schoeffling's book The Art And Business of Acting For Games - Shameless friend plug, but honestly I love gifting this book to people and having it as a go to whenever I'm asked about how our industry works. (link here)

  4. FRIENDSHIP - All of my best connections and opportunities have come from bonds that I made through genuine interest in someone. I dont make friends to further my career, I make friends who love the same things I do and want to collaborate on making things we believe in. Luckily, the people who inspire me have gone on to do really cool things, as have I and we think about ways we can support each other. I love my friends.

  5. My Dog Charly - If you know you know.
