“A Day in the Life” with local actor Tommie-Amber Pirie

Tommie-Amber Pirie says hi to every dog she passes. She can build a deck and also Pinterest your bathroom. She cooks vegan bread that actually tastes amazing. Her acting talent springs from a dark and mysterious well of genius that you can’t describe. She’s smart and funny and sassy and can press 225 pounds with her legs. She did a triple toe as a member of Canada’s figure skating team and will cut you if you hurt those dear to her.  You want her as the friend who will tell you the truth about yourself, and as the explosive and fascinating star of your movie. She ultimately would like to direct.
