I grew up in a small town in WI in the woods. I knew I wanted to be an actress when I got cast as Goldlielocks alongside the three bears in kindergarten. After that I was in all the plays, was the class clown, the prom queen and also the class president two years in a row with all the confidence from being in the spotlight. I grew up in the middle of two boys so being the only girl didn't hurt. I read a lot of books growing up and was always inspired to travel. My parents got divorced when I was a teenager and I knew I had a bunch of soul searching to do so I left home as soon as I turned 18. I lived, went to college and got my heart more broken in Chicago, Florida, New York, Spain, San Diego and eventually landed in L.A. where I started acting in more short films and getting tired of the Kardashian like roles I was auditioning for at the time, and decided to write/direct and star in my own. I shot "Six Girls One Cup" a political satire with no budget a $500 canon that someone sold me cheaper than they got it and a crew of 20 and cast of 25. I had a blast making it, a boost of confidence and apart from that started auditioning and scoring small roles in better projects since I was no longer going to act for others......I then had a strange and terrifying dream in which I met myself as a baby. The baby told me I was screwing up my life and not listening......I was so horrified at how real this felt so I vowed to listen to baby in my waking life no matter what and it told me I needed to move back to WI. I was devastated but when I got home, I found out my Momma's breast cancer was back and my dearest Grandma needed me too. This was going to be my last chance to be with them. I got a job at a mushroom farm, a job bartending and another job teaching preschool at a church. I started playing guitar and singing to exercise my creativity , started oil painting again and writing two feature scripts in the last 8 years I have been home. I cared for Mother and Grandmother tree for 8 years and then helped them transition to the angelic side within a month of each other. I was then with their guidance and strength in my heart was able to focus on my dream which was to make a feature. During this last year some amazing Women and Men came together to film Meat Raffle. I trained a bunch of people how to make a movie as best as I knew how and we successfully turned our small town into "Hollywoods"....Right before my premiere I discovered that I too have the breast cancer gene and am currently fighting it off...So I can make more movies!!!!!! The next one will involve our local tribe and will be another political satire.
