Bella is one of the youngest film makers/actors in Hollywood with autism. She had a start in acting at the age of 7, doing an anti bullying PSA. As fate would have it, she returned to acting 4 years later in 2018, to overcome being a victim of severe bullying herself and as a way to learn to socialize and communicate with peers again. She attended The Playground LA Young Actors Conservatory under Gary Spatz, in a few commercials, then landing her first feature film roles in The Infiltrators (2019) and The Vanished (2020). Other credits include Angel Girl (2020), Mama's Ducks (voice and singing for Mama Duck, Otter, Little Duck and others) (2021), and finally, a project she helped develop, Glory & Injustice (2022), to both portray and advocate for the autism community that's incredibly underrepresented, and bring focus to the concept that autism is a wide ranging spectrum, and autistic people are not defined by a perception of their disability . Bella has two older siblings, Alex ,and Kennedy, who are also on the autism spectrum, artists and animators.

Got to dance with Katy Perry livestreamed on YouTube for the Witness Tour. She tore a hole in her pants.
Both of my siblings have autism as well. We also all have green eyes. It's like winning the lottery, except all the money and stuff.
