The Orange County, California native and actress with a huge social media following can next be seen as a lead opposite Denise Richards in Blackpills’ A Girl Is A Gun, an upcoming feature that follows three women living in Los Angeles who go missing, creating wave of panic in the city.

Q Tell us a little about your career path.

A I began my career in radio. From there I started hosting different events, red carpets, and then I got a cameo in the film Snake and Mongoose. From that moment on I knew I wanted acting as my career.

What are some of your favourite projects that you have worked on? Why?
I’ve had a few, but one of the best experiences hands down was when I got the role in the film called Ay Luv Yu Tuu. The shoot was in Turkey for two months. It was one of the most enriching experiences I’ve ever had. I mean, I got to do what I love (acting), while being able to explore a country I’ve never been to and immerse myself in their culture.

Tell us about your charitable endeavors and why it is important to give back.
I’m a part of the Best Friends Animal Society of Los Angeles, which is an adoption service for animals. I have a dog called Kodi, and am always encouraging adoption!

Favourite city to travel to, why?
Amsterdam. It has so much to offer, and is so laid back and fun. It offers so many teaching opportunities like museums and historical landmarks. Plus, I got to explore the entire city on a bike!

What are you currently day dreaming about?
Getting the opportunity to land another role in a movie filmed in a different country.
