A little about me...
Hello there! My name is Maya Shoham, I’m an Israeli-Aussie actress, writer, producer, baker, and wine enthusiast who currently lives in New York City. The art I aspire to do will be thought-provoking, out-of-the-ordinary, and unique. I want to tell stories that make people feel, or think, or do. Or… all of the above.
I like having existential conversations over a glass of red wine and french fries. I find joy in having people over for dinner in my tiny upper west side apartment. My challah bread is the best you’ll ever try, and you’re welcome to pick me up on this.
