Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, went to school at University of Colorado-Boulder, currently live in Los Angeles, CA. I love all things food and travel. And beer.
24 Days spent traversing the western United States. Over 3,600 miles exploring this beautiful country – living out of Jeep Wrangler – alone. It’s one of the most incredible experiences I have had, and a true adventure. Including the part where I got stuck in the mountains – off a side road embankment – in 4 feet of snow – 40 miles from the nearest human – no cell service – in 12 degree weather… for 2 days. Alone. Scariest moment of my life. You can hear about that here. <<<
A couple months back I saw a posting about a comedic proof of concept short. They were casting the 4 leads – and I knew I was perfect for one of the roles. I emailed casting (maybe more than once) and my persistence paid off. They sent my materials to the directors (one of whom is the writer of Van Wilder, and Girl Next Door) and they loved my reel. They skipped the audition and gave me a straight to chemistry read with a few actresses – and I booked the part. It was a highlight of my career – and a moment where it shows – in this business – you have to do everything you can to try and fight for what you want – and should the opportunity arise – knock it out of the fucking park. So grateful for this experience and hoping it can turn into something in 2022.
The main cast is myself, Soleil Moon Frye, Josh Banday, and Ayden Skye.

A little log line: I discovered acting at an all boys summer camp when I was 12 years old because the camp play got to travel across the lake to the girls camp AND get McDonald’s on their way back. You spend 4 weeks in the woods and trust me, you’ll do just about anything for nuggets. Even sign up to be in a musical with zero singing ability and no acting experience… #NuggLife
It also talks about my love of adventure, and with 2020 being what it is, I’ve spent more time on my couch than I would like to admit… however, I did have a breaking moment and packed up my Jeep for a 2 week road trip through Utah and Colorado. A few weeks later I camped for a week in Mammoth Lakes (highly recommend!), and with fall arriving the other day, I’m thinking it may be time for round two (just have to decide where) to see the changing of the leaves. Here’s some photos from the trips I took back in April/May and July along with a 3 week stint back in St. Louis and a trip to the Ozarks.
Well that’s all for now… hope everyone is staying safe, mentally and physically. It’s been a lot of ups and downs, a year of internal review and really understanding to find peace in the stillness… it’s a work in progress.
