Interviewed for WIRED Magazine!

By August 19, 2023No Comments
I am honored to have been interviewed for this WIRED article by Grant Stoner about accessibility for actors.
This is one of my quotes that was featured:
“The power of storytelling is what I’m most passionate about in life, and it’s an incredible tool to help us as humans connect and empathize with each other and hear from voices that have often been silenced.”
There is a slight misrepresentation in the article that I ONLY can work remotely. I am able and willing to work in studios and travel to do so. However, there have been times in the past, like during COVID and bad health periods, that going into a studio would have been difficult or risky for me.
While I’ve had my share of health issues and obstacles to contend with, I never say I have a “disability.” I believe I am capable of doing anything I set my mind to, but I just have to make certain adjustments or allowances sometimes to accommodate my needs. I like to think of life like a game, and I’m just playing it on “Hard” mode.
All I ask is for the world to see the incredible pool of talented and hardworking individuals available, that would be untapped without accessibility and the availability of remote work. For more on this topic, please read the WIRED article linked below:
