About

Emily Fortuna’s friends have long suspected she’s superhuman. Don’t be fooled by that adorable exterior! Raised by a west Texan pack of wolves that discovered her as an infant, she learned at a very young age to forego sleep for the sake of the hunt. She used this intense drive to double major in Computer Science and Linguistics, perform at Carnegie Hall with her orchestra, and now splits her time dancing between the worlds of acting, producing, programming languages and Machine Learning.

Other hobbies include nerdy joke appreciation, sculpting with polymer clay, gardening, font snobbery, opinionated literary criticism, and baking extremely unhealthy but delicious treats. When her hurried schedule causes longing for the solitude of her youth, Emily can be found camouflaged as a burrito in a Mexican restaurant.

Get in touch: get coaching, advice or share your favorite joke:

Any musician worth her salt studies privately in addition to playing with an orchestra or band. Acting is no different, yet such ongoing individual instruction is often hard to come by. Looking for coaching, advice, a nudge in the right direction, or a scene partner? I’m happy to help!
