Daniella Rukin is a Chicago-based actor and pianist.  She has been playing the piano since her mother forced her to at a very young age.  (Thanks Mom!) She also fell in love with the magic of theatre as a kid, fell in love with magic of film as a teenager, and later graduated from University of Illinois at Chicago with a degree in Theatre Performance. Since then, she has worked across the country, from California to New York, acting and playing the piano, on-screen and on-stage. In her free time, she enjoys a typical urban/millennial/hipster lifestyle and can be found biking around Chicago, eating vegan food, practicing yoga, and reading The Onion.
