Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Since growing up in Post Soviet Russia, I was looking for my voice , ways to express and authentically connect with others . After the end of communism and new era in Russia , there weren’t many avenues for creative expression or free speech. I knew that to find an authentic voice , I’d have to travel , that’s why modeling was very appealing as means to discover different cultures and ways of living . After having kids I felt it was time to grow and dig deeper . Acting provides me with an opportunity to learn more about human nature and since the roles for Russians are still quiet limited I felt that live comedy stage is an incredible place to connect and share life experiences ….
