I was a (painfully) shy kid. On the first day of pre-k, I cried so much that my mom had to come back to get me. Then, when I was in the first grade, everyone auditioned for the school musical, and somehow, I was cast in the child chorus of Brigadoon. The director must have been able to sense my untouched potential because he featured me downstage at Harry’s Funeral wiping away a single tear. Undoubtedly my breakout performance, that experience also helped me break out of my shell. That musical started a love affair with the stage. Afterwards, I begged my mom to let me take voice lessons and dance classes. I wanted to be on Broadway.
Over the years, the sensible side of me interfered. I ended up graduating from USC with a degree in Communications and started working in fashion marketing. Luckily, a talent agency I interned for in college (I went through a phase where I thought I wanted to be an agent so I could still be in the “business” but have a “real job”) asked me to audition for them and wanted to sign me! I knew I would always regret it if I didn’t, so I decided to go for it. Since then, I’ve been on TV a few times, and I’m still having a blast, so I’m thinking I made the right choice.
I’ve always had a passion for cooking and baking (probably more baking because I have a huge sweet tooth), and I even started a cooking blog way back when chronicling my adventures in the kitchen. It was called, “Life Above the Clouds.” Many years later, I found myself looking for cannabis cooking resources online and being really disappointed with the results. After complaining to my lovely boyfriend, he simply said, “why don’t you make your own show?” and Life Above the Clouds 2.0 was born. My YouTube channel has since grown to include all kinds of recipes (even healthy ones), and I hope to continue making all of my daydreams a reality.
