What do I do best?
Whatever I put my mind to I give 200%. I always see things through to the end. I am also fearless to try anything. I am always willing to learn so there is nothing I am perfect at but I strive to do my best in everything I put my mind to.
What makes me the best version of myself?
Being fearless. If you are not afraid of what could go wrong then you are able to try anything. I try and learn something from each situation Im experiencing and take responsibility for my actions. I also believe anything is possible, why couldn’t it be me. I visualize things and then go for it.
What are my aspirations?
To be the best mom I can be. The best daughter I can be and the best friend I can be. I love mentoring. I want to make a difference in people’s lives and I want to tell stories that change the world.
My Biggest Success?
Definitely having my daughter. She is unbelievably brilliant and kind and happy and dedicated. I’ve had a book published and I’ve directed six feature films. I’ve moved to LA and I’ve come through a trauma. Divorce changed me and I had a choice where it would turn me into a better person.
My Most Challenging Moment?
Whether to move back to the Uk so my ex husband and his new girlfriend could be near our daughter or stay in LA. I chose to stay in LA because I realized my daughter needed a happy mommy as a role model. A mom who could work and build a life for us both. Who knows what the alternative would have been but I know we are both beyond content and happy with our life out here.
Anything is possible and NEVER give up. I also find living by the ocean and walking along the beach each day allows me to stay grounded.
My Favorite People/Role Models?
Audrey Hepburn. Stunning inside and out. Julie Andrews because she is practically perfect in every way. Baz Luhrman as a director, I love his passion and style.
My Favorite Places/Destinations?
Where I live, Hermosa Beach. As well as South of France. I hunk I was born there in a previous life. But I love travelling. Driving across America or Europe.
My Favorite Products/Objects?
My vinyls and record player. My boat, a vintage 1978 Searay. Stripped back to its bare bones. My Maltese. My diary and lists written by pen. My basket where I carry my books. My Kabbalah bracelet. Anything I’ve collected on my travels. Or anything my daughter made for me as a little girl. My photo albums, I have at least 50.
My Current Passions?
I never work a day in my life yet I take action every day to fulfil my passions, creating, telling stories, Writing and film making.
My dog chai and my daughter and her happiness.
