About the Artist
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had a passion for being in entertainment and entertaining. It was a place where I could shine, show my talent and “be me”. While my friends were interested in playing with barbies, watching music videos, and going to the beach, I was drawn to doing voiceovers, writing scripts and putting on shows to perform.
My whole childhood was a big winding road doing years of competitive dance, gymnastics, track, cheerleading and in the arts did musical theatre and some regular theatre. Accomplished in all, I had the world at my fingertips and potential athletic scholarships in gymnastics, track and cheerleading.
Nevertheless, at 16 years old, I was in a terrible accident where I almost lost my life. I survived, but the doctors told my parents I was crippled and may have suffered permanent brain damage. My life was turned upside down and I was left lost and depressed for several years. Raised by a middle class family of three children, money would determine where I could go to school. I was able to recover to about 90%, but it was too late for me to be scouted for college scholarships.
Studying at what I thought was my back up school, I ended up an irreplaceable experience, which helped me re-discover who I was and grow as an artist.
I received scholarship to study dance and theatre during the school year from a few donors, as well as full ride “Summer Art’s” scholarships to grow during the summer. I had the opportunity to perform in theatre, dance and local film and television. It was an amazing time in my life, where graduation felt bitter sweet. I was sad to go, but so ready to tackle the real world.
I now live in Los Angeles, work, and pursue work on a daily basis.
