I was born in Point Loma, San Diego, California, on August 21st. I spent most of my early years with my brother and parents on a 44' Peterson sailboat. If we weren't sailing we were at my grandfathers mountain house, riding horses and playing outside. When I was nine my family moved to Boulder, Colorado. I learned later that the deciding factor for the move was based on my question, "What's a boulder?"
The memories of my childhood are colored with camping, tubing, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, wake-boarding, caving, canoeing, and any and many other outdoor activities. We never had a Television set, so that forced us to find things to do outside the house.
I am often asked what made me want to become an actress. I'm sure the answer is a combination of my very supportive and musical family, my education in Waldorf schools, and my desire to leave a lasting positive impression on people. I do however remember the first moment when I had the actual thought, that acting was what I wanted to do when I grew up. We had gone to see a family friend in a play when I was about three. He died in the play and I remember being terrified that he had actually died. After the play, it was explained to me he was just acting.....I was so amazed and hooked right then. I too wanted to have that kind of emotional effect on people.
From the age of 6 I was in every school play that I could be a part of. In 7th grade I joined a youth community theatre and performed my first real play, Englebert Humperdink's Hansel and Gretel. I played the part of Gretel.
Upon arriving in LA in 2000, I became a student of a small Meisner Technique School. I landed some gigs in commercials which gave me the financial freedom and time to co-found a theatre company in Santa Monica. The Ruskin Group Theatre. While there, I co-created and produced the critically acclaimed LA Cafe Plays with Mike Myers, Michael Laurie and Markus Flanagan.
In 05’ I acted in my first feature film, "Loving Annabelle",with writer/director Katherine Brooks. I had met Katherine 4 years prior when she walked up to me in the audience of a play and said, "Please tell me you're an actress!" I said yes, and the rest is history.
After Loving Annabelle, I had a part on TV show filmed in Hawaii called “Beyond the Break”, then flew to Colorado to work with a friend of mine, Shad Thompson on a short film titled “The Process”. In ’07 I was in another of Katherine Brook’s films “Waking Madison”, playing the role of a disturbed girl named Grace. Last year, I played Tara in the Hit Web Series “Feed”.
I was incredibly blessed my whole time in LA. I had a flawless support system of friends and family. I am grateful to each and every one of them.
In July of ’09 poor health lead my partner and I to Colorado to seek out alternative medical care.
Through my search for health wellness our production company did not slow down. In October 2009 we started a monthly theatre project called Hitching Post Theater. Hitching Post has become a landmark for local artists to showcase and fine tune their craft. Rock Rose also shot our first short film Lilith which is currently in the festival circuit, as well as shot a documentary on mercury toxicity, called Mercury Arising, which is currently in post production.
