✩ ABOUT

I always got in trouble for talking. No one could get me to stop then and they can't get me to stop now. It became the basis of every parent-teacher conference -- so much so that I was surprised my mom still went to those things.   
 
In elementary school, I took it upon myself to join the drama club and school-wide speech meets, enjoying every minute of it. I could be as loud as I wanted, with a little drama queen here and creative freedom there; the culmination of my natural-born personality.

At this point, talking had become apart of me and my mother was no stranger to this knowledge. So at the age of 9, my mom enrolled me in a semester at All About Kids Performing Arts Conservatory after already having done a number of school productions. I took a break from performing in middle school, then jumped back into it in high school with roles including: Kaye Hamilton in Stage Door, Muzzy Van Hossmere in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and the lead in Red Noses as  Flote, a French monk (performed both at school and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe). I also trained at Amazing Grace Conservatory in the middle of all that, which was an incredible experience. Oh, I almost forgot to mention I'm from Los Angeles. An aspiring actress from Los Angeles -- original!
 
Realizing that I could use my voice in more ways than one, I was introduced to the world of radio my sophomore year. My friend, Jenny, asked me if I would like to co-host an online radio show with her on Urban Soul Radio and I said "girl, yes"  (I had a more dramatic reaction than that, but I'm trying to maintain a cool tone here). Our show, "Urban Teens Unleashed, The Only Show That Keeps it Real About What Teens Feel!" ran for about two years with 10,000 listeners worldwide. My growing interest in radio then led me to a great internship my junior year with Starlett Quarles on her online radio show, "The Dialogue w/ Starlett Quarles" on LATalkLive!.
 
Now, I attend college in Chicago as a Radio major, am exclusively represented for voiceover and on-camera work in L.A., Chicago, and Atlanta, and with a great outlook on life because ya girl is on her way to talking for a living! *drops mic* *picks it back up 'cause mics are expensive.*
