a•bout me

I appreciate you! Yes, you… no, I’m talking to you. It’s me Vanessa… my friends call me “V”, and because I respect your time, like I respect mine… I’ll keep this short. Born and raised in Albany, NY. I’ve lived in Boston, JP, Cambridge, Las Vegas, Henderson, Beverly Hills, North Hollywood, Santa Monica, Valley Village, BX, BK, NYC, New Ro and Mt.Vernon… I could say? I get around…but someone may take that in a different light.

I went to school (Northeastern University) for electrical engineering, yup…hated it. I’ve learned just because you’re good at something, doesn’t mean that’s what you should do.So, I changed my major, graduated and followed my heart to NYC and landed at Circle In the Square Theatre School (two grueling yet exhilarating years of immersion.)

Now… armed with a great emotional range and an equally self-deprecating sense of humor; I look forward to my next role, that would include my love of dancing, cooking, cycling, country music and NASCAR. What?  

I ACT. I LOVE. I WRITE. I LAUGH. I CRY. I WRITE. I ACT. I LIVE.
