Tell us a bit about the projects you are working on.

Although I am still shooting the second season of Lethal Weapon, I have a couple of shows in development on the producing side. I am working on directing more TV, working on a Biopic film, and even plan on recording a modern standards album with my husband.

With your busy schedule, what do you like to do with your downtime?

I love to dance, box, hike in nature, and hang at home with my family.

When you go out to eat, where do you like to dine?

I am Gluten-free, so we usually opt for organic restaurants. I love Blue Ribbon sushi too!
