Hide and Seek speaks to the societal challenge that women, and especially women of color, endure every day.  To look in the mirror and to hope to see a face other than your own.  One that is closer to what magazines, television and movies define as beautiful or even normal. What face do you see when you look in the mirror?

Hide and Seek is a very personal film to me as I got my start in front of the camera as a model at the age of 15, before honing my craft in film, television and theater.
