Cape Town

its not just that i love roald dahl. its that i love pictures. people. especially kids. and how they attack you with a spongy sword or smile for a photo. with little freckles on their nose.

but on a more serious note, i do live my dream. singing and travelling the world. singing for cape town opera moves me into my photography, travelling, french and style hobbies. it is also where i met my Xhosa friend, Buki, and we started a "band"..ok , a duo, but that doesn't sound so cool. A proudly south african vocal duo, Sabela Sisters. we sing at the Waterfornt for extra pennies...yay!!!!

and i just got my first solo role in the new William Kentrdige production, The Refusal of Time. things comes together, slowly but surely.
