What inspires you?
My family! My husband Louis and my 2 kids, Gabriella and Alexander makes me want to be a better person and to keep growing. Music and paintings also inspire me to be creative.
Born and raised on a farm in Sweden, I always had a love for performing and writing. I Came to the US on a dance scholarship after graduating from “The Ballet Academy" I met my husband Luis Garcia in ballet class and ditched a dance job in Greece to stay with him. I learned to "trick jumprope" from Louis and other "Circus Type skills" from other people I met. Me and Louis toured and performed for years as "The Rebel Ropers". We also shot a lot of commercials and I decided to add acting training and studied at "The Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in LA and NY. This led me into pursuing acting and that has been my main focus for the past 15 years. I also write since I love to tell stories and focus on female driven stories. I still perform as a Circus / Variety Artist, mainly with my daughter Gabriella as "CaliStilts Entertainment. We also bring other performers in for events and shows.
I feel very blessed that I get to do what I love for a living and that I have a great family and amazing friends.
Where can we find you?
