Biography
  • * Dorisa was born in the City of Angeles. She lived in Iran from ages 5 to 14 when she returned to the United States. After completing her undergraduate education at UC Berkeley, and graduate studies at Harvard University, she studied acting and theatre arts and lived in Spain and Italy. She has now moved back to Los Angeles where she has been enjoying the California sunshine, and taking acting classes at Playhouse West.
    Dorisa lived in Iran during perhaps one of the most difficult times of its history when the country was and still is undergoing a political turmoil. Her background inspired a new artistic goal for her: "to live out the emotional aspect of a story by truthfully heightening our awareness, by understanding ourselves as how we are as opposed to how we wish to be in order to experience this magical emotional journey." To achieve this goal, she continues to study acting intensely.
