Eva grew up in an environment rich with the dramas of socialites, politicians, artists and musicians. At fourteen years old, athletic and strong, Eva’s first job was working for her father. She was the first female to work the job of shack boy, the title was changed to pantry girl.

The position evolved into writer/producer on the project, The Shaping of America, a series of historical spots on American history.

Eva is also an accomplished artist and she’s a bit of a nature freak.
