I was born just outside of Detroit, Michigan to a French-Moroccan mother and German father. Having been raised in South Africa, France, Germany, and the United States I am fluent in english, french and german (alas I've forgotten my africaans). I have been blessed with a life full of fascinating, interesting and magical experiences that have taken me all over the world. As a result I have a sincere appreciation and respect for it and it's people.
I received my BBA from the University of Michigan's prestigious Business School in 1992. After working in the advertising and fashion industries for 5 years, I gave up a successful advertising career and moved to Los Angeles in September of 1997 in an effort to pursue a more meaningful creative career as an actor.
To date I have starred in 5 feature films, held two significant supporting roles in features, and also played various lead and supporting roles in over 40 projects and television shows. Additionally I have appeared in several commercials and plays.
