I’m reading at the European Literature Night!

I can’t believe it’s already summer!

I hope you had a great spring filled with new experiences and discoveries. I was lucky enough to travel quite a bit – San Francisco with its beautiful coastline, the birthplace of Jazz in New Orleans, flashy Las Vegas and peaceful Finland. Without a doubt, New Orleans stole my heart with its endless jazz bars, delicious food, Hurricane Katrina’s exhibit, Mississippi River and good vibes. I could just sit on a street all day long and listen to the exceptionally talented street musicians sharing their gifts…

If you would like to experience the spirit of European café culture, enjoy books, European food and drinks, please join me this Friday at the Czech Center, which hosts its first European Literature Night. I will be reading Estonian author Rein Raud’s novel “The Brother” in the main room from 8-9pm. In between readings, you can listen to authentic Estonian music and taste famous Estonian black bread. The event is FREE and open to the public! Click here to read more!

And here’s a link to the street musicians Wael and Anna who blew me away with their talent in New Orleans!

Happy Summer!

Web Series, Comedy And Being Me!

I hope this year has started off well for you with lots of inspiration and goals to achieve! If I could make a wish for you, it would be to live this year from a place of curiosity as it makes life adventurous, exciting and enhances new discoveries.

2017 has started off well for me with lots of camera time almost every week as I’ve been lucky to be part of several film projects. I’m currently part of a new web series “Find A Way” (see pic above!) which will be shooting first three episodes in upcoming months. But before the dramatic web series, I also got to be funny 🙂 in a comedy about background actors. And in between being funny and dramatic, I got to be me and perform Estonian composers music at the The New York Times Travel Show, which is a three day cultural extravaganza.

I’d like to share something with you that means the world to me:  Estonian Cultural Days is a multi-day festival in New York with concerts (I will be performing on April 7 at the Scandinavia House!), theater performances, lectures, and other events featuring Estonians from both the local diaspora and abroad. It’s a four day affair running from April 5th to April 9th! Click here to read more about it!

Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and I hope that your life is full of love not just on that special day but every day!

Thank You and have a fun New Year’s Eve!
