She was part of the first graduating class of the North East School of the Arts, the premier school of its kind in her hometown. She then moved to New York City with only $500 in her pocket and a dream, and paid her own way through college at Fordham University at Lincoln Center, where she graduated with a BA in theatre/acting and a minor in French. She has since relocated to LA and is continuing to pursue her lifelong passion. Credited as a background vocalist on the title track of Beck’s 2007 album, “The Information.” She had the privilege of working alongside Beck and Nigel Godrich, and can be seen in several of the music videos being featured in this double disc CD/DVD.”*

1. How did you get into the industry?
I have been acting & singing since I was a young girl growing up in Texas. I started around 8 doing musicals in the local community theatre, got hooked, & eventually got accepted into the first performing arts highschool in San Antonio, where I studied theatre & voice, & then got a scholarship to Fordham University at Lincoln Center in NYC, where I got my BFA in acting. It’s been a lifelong journey really.
2. What Scream Queen inspired you the most?
I would have to say Sigourney Weaver first & foremost. Aliens is hands down one of the best movies in the genre. And it was such an awesome & powerful female lead role. She was so tough & believable. I get told I look like a young Sigourney Weaver alot – and I take this as a high compliment. Another inspiration of mine is definitely Winona Ryder – her role in Dracula is an all time favorite. And of course Edward Scissorhands -which takes my breath away every time I watch it. I would die to play either of those roles!!!
3. What are the next couple projects you are working on?
I have a few things in the works actually. Shooting this summer is Spencer Grey’s feature “Left Hand Lords” – where it looks like I’ll be playing an evil sidekick to Billy Blair (from Robert Rodriguez’ Sin City) so I couldn’t be more thrilled. I am also slated to play Ophelia in a web series rendering of The Tragedy of Hamlet, being produced by award winning actor & producer Ford Austin, in association with Dreamworks TV. I also play the lead in a paranormal thriller called Foreseen – which we shot the trailer sizzle for a couple months ago. Check it out on our facebook page & please hit like!
