Actor, Writer moonlighting as Videographer
Which Queens neighborhood do you live in and for how long?
I’ve been living in Astoria for a little over a year now.
How did you get involved in theater?
My debut into the theater was playing princess Annabelle in “Cinderfellow” in the 5th grade. I haven’t lived up to that performance since.
What do you love most about Queens?
I love a) the diversity of cultures. I grew up in a multi-cultural environment, so I love being able to explore different ethnic pockets especially when it involves food!
b) it’s midpoint between neighborly and cool. Queens and especially Astoria has homey family oriented neighborhoods. But it’s also a draw for artists and entrepreneurs who are contributing to a growing arts, dining and night life culture.
Bars and Restaurants: The Sparrow, Queens Kickshaw, The Bohemian Beer Garden, Sweet Afton, HinoMaru and Taverna Kyclades.
Points of interest: Socrates Park (free yoga and film series in the summer!), Astoria Park, MoMa PS 1 (Warm UP in the summer is da bomb), Museum of the Moving Image.
