Hi! My name is Rhana. I feel truly blessed to be the mom of three funny, brilliant teens who light up the autism spectrum. I'm married to a handsome hypnotist. By day I'm the Community Manager (AKA one-woman support team) for AdBlock, the #1 ad blocker for Chrome and Safari, and an award-winning technical writer. By night (and early morning, on weekends, and at other stolen moments) I'm an award-winning actress* and commercial model, a member of Philly sketch team Idaho, Wham!, and an award-winning novelist**. At the most basic level, what I do is I tell stories.
Everybody has a story. Our lives are a comedy-drama in three acts with a surprise ending. Oscar material, every one. We just need the courage to tell our story, and someone to listen.
So what's my story? Well, every story starts with a logline...
With the support of her family, a shy, socially awkward middle-aged mother of three enters an international talent competition. But when she wins, can she overcome a lifetime of self-doubt to make her childhood dream come true?
So far so good. And thanks for listening.
