An Okie who made it to La La Land...


No doubt about it, I took a long and winding road to get here, and I currently have the windows down and the music up. I’m a Native American (Choctaw) from Clayton Oklahoma, population: 700. With little entertainment but our cows and an active imagination, I fell head over heels with bringing compelling characters to life through storytelling.


Life took an unexpected turn when I was scouted by a modeling agency and flown to Milan, Italy, where I made a living being tall and hungry. My modeling days provided me with a boatload of experiences, many of which inspire my TV pilots and characters.

Along the way, I snagged a bachelor’s degree in drama at the University of Oklahoma (go Sooners!). I went on to hone my acting skills in Los Angeles and have appeared in Criminal Minds, Days of Our Lives, and Road Hard, starring Adam Carolla to name a few. I merged writing and acting and created a web series called, Recovering Model, wrote for Disney’s Tangled TV show, performed on the improv stages at Groundlings and UCB, then toured with Wayne Brady doing both standup and improv.


I’m excited to announce that I was one of four writers chosen to be in the Native American Showrunner Program for 2020 and I’m currently a staff writer on Spirit Rangers, a new NETFLIX animation series.
