My name is Felicia.

I'm an NYC actress, model, and vocalist named after my Italian grandmother who immigrated to the United States after surviving WWII. My Nana was radiant, kind, and honest to her core. She was the woman who managed to touch almost everyone's heart in the city of Pittsburgh, the place where she immigrated to and where I'm from.

 

Growing up, after Christmas Eve dinners, Nana would sneak me an extra cookie and I'd get up and sing and dance for my family year after year. It was there, seeing her beam back at me with a smile, where I first learned that art can be love. And love can be the producer of art.

My relationship with my grandmother - with love and bravery - is so much a part of who I am, and the spirit that guides me when I work.
