Personal Quote:

Growing up in Hollywood was such fun. My kindergarten teacher got me started acting, and once I got the feel of being someone else, I couldn't stop. I acted in everything I could all through grammar school, junior high, and then Hollywood High. I received good feedback from everyone, and being a sensitive and shy person, I found it extremely fulfilling.
