Eva is a veteran actress from New York who recently moved to Richmond and took up makeup artistry as a means to pay the bills between gigs. She soon discovered a new passion: helping women look and feel their best. Lately she has focused on bringing makeup artistry and acting together by documenting the diverse stories of the women who sit in her makeup chair and then bringing them to life on stage. Her mission is to convince every woman that she is beautiful — with or without makeup. Eva’s acting credits include Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Saturday Night Live, and All My Children. She holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from The New School University in NYC.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
