"I’m a real Jane of all trades. I’m from Seattle, but grew up all around the world, in Lebanon, Dubai, Germany, and Canada!"

"That whole time I was always writing stories and directing fantastic little shorts with my friends. When I’m not on set for somebody else, I’m directing and producing my own stories and films."

"As someone who grew up with a multicultural background, I have a real fascination with stories about discovering who you are and finding where you belong in the world."

Eimanne El Zein"My whole life I felt like 'I want the adventure and thrill that comes with being an actress and a filmmaker'. I realized very young that I wanted to be an actress after watching Indiana Jones and falling in love with the action and adventure."

"I wanted to be him! I thought that acting would be the best way to maximize thwe adventure in my life. Then growing up around the world, I found myself often isolated and lonely."

"My circle of friends group was always changing - my environment was always something new to adapt to, but films provided a welcome escape and guiding light."

"I started to realize that it was the best medium for reaching people and making a difference and I knew that was what I wanted to do with my life."

"One of my first big roles in Los Angeles was playing Agent Julia in the series 'Project Child: Origins'. Not only was it an incredibly fun project, full of action, demons, and weapons training."

"It really expanded my network to incorporate some amazing producers who I still often collaborate with a today."

Eimanne El Zein"They have since helped me produce numerous other films and they’ve continued to cast me in projects that are challenging and rewarding."

"For me personally, the modeling was all about breath and movement. So I carry that over into acting."

"My background in modeling has allowed me to tap into a subtle relationship with the camera and an attuned awareness of how what I do translates on screen."

"I also love snowboarding, running 100 mile races, firearms training, surfing and other physical activities. I’ve just always been the type of person to have a lot of interests and get excited by a lot of things."

"I want to do as much as possible with my life. That includes doing extreme sports that make me feel like a real life action hero as well as my career that brings all these interests and fantasies to life! I’m able to manage all of these different roles in a couple of ways."

"First is - Lots of lists! I still keep a paper day planner of my schedule. I’m a visual person and so physically writing out the things I need to accomplish each day helps me to prioritize and stay on track."

"I also have a wonderful support network and strive to surround myself with friends who are also always pushing their lives forward."

"We send each other feedback on projects and meet once a week in an accountability work group that gives us all an outlet."

Eimanne El Zein"Finally, I try to maintain a level of trust that things will just happen at the right time."

"If I’m not booking a ton of modeling jobs one month, it’s extra time to get my directing projects off the ground."

"I try to spin everything, including things like not having work, into an opportunity! I’m working on a new series right now that I’m very excited about!"

"It’s the story of your average millennial girl trying to balance school, friends, and life while hiding her new career as a Dominatrix from her muslim immigrant parents."

"Totally basic, right? It’s called “On Your Knees” and the reception has been absolutely amazing so far. I think it’s very timely. Even though it’s such a unique and extreme situation, it deals with very universal themes."

"At its core, it’s about a girl who has grown up caught between two different worlds and cultures. She’s trying to figure out who she is and where she belongs."

It’s about her struggle to remain honest and authentic about all the parts of herself, including the parts that she might think would be easier to just sweep under the rug.

Eimanne El Zein"I grew up in a Muslim household, which is why this story is particularly relevant to me. We didn’t talk about things like sex or sexual health."

"It was such a major taboo and I had to find my own ways to learn about all of these things that were 'forbidden'. "

"Now, there is a major movement in the Middle East and within Arab Women’s culture, a movement to finally talk openly about sex and free female expression."

"I want to use my voice and experience to contribute positively to this movement and expand the conversation. I believe that with more exposure and acceptance comes greater understanding, and that’s something we can never have enough of."

"I still would love to say I have been on the cover of Vogue Magazine. I mean who wouldn’t want to have a Vogue cover?! They’re always stunning and it seems like they work with such talented photographers to really capture peoples’ essence."
