No doubt about it, I took a long and winding road to get here, and I currently have the windows down and the music up. I’m a Choctaw from Clayton Oklahoma, population: 700. With little entertainment but our cows and an active imagination, I fell head over heels with bringing compelling characters to life through storytelling.
You did what?
Life took an unexpected turn when I was scouted by a modeling agency and flown to Milan, Italy, where I made a living being tall and hungry. My modeling days provided me with a boatload of experiences, many of which inspire my TV pilots and characters.
Along the way, I snagged a bachelor’s degree in drama and a minor in writing at the University of Oklahoma (go Sooners!). I went on to hone my acting skills in Los Angeles and have appeared in Criminal Minds, Days of Our Lives, and Road Hard, starring Adam Carolla to name a few. I merged writing and acting and created a web series called, Recovering Model, wrote for Disney’s Tangled TV show, performed on the improv stages at Groundlings and UCB, then toured with Wayne Brady doing both standup and improv.
On the acting side I have three films coming out this year and next, and am currently writing and directing a romantic comedy for AMAZEVR. Offline, I’m a Big Sister to an amazing ten-year-old girl in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, constantly visiting my family in Southeastern Oklahoma and Texas, and am still advocating that a ‘pot of beans’ is a proper meal to my city friends. My soul did the Boot Scootin’ Boogie when the one and only Julia Fowler asked me to join the Southern Women family – thanks for welcoming me with a warm hug and a cool glass of ice tea!
