"I was 8 years old when I worked my first professional acting job. From there on performing and training as a performer was my entire professional life. But there were so many times I knew I wanted more, both creatively and intellectually. First in college and then when I was helping lead the actors' unions. But it was a writers' strike in Hollywood and fear of not being able to work that finally drove me to law school.
I knew from the moment I prepared my first opening that this art form was what my entire professional and personal life had been building to. I still serve on the board of a SAG local and I still do a movie now and then, but at my core I am an advocate. My purpose in life is to share that knowledge I spent the first half of my life acquiring. There is no greater high for me than empowering other advocates or empowering people to be their own advocate for justice."
