I'm Lauren, nice to meet you!
>> Born and raised in beautiful San Diego, California, I suffered through sunny 75 degree weather year after year. I fell in love with dance, music, and theatre early on and got my start directing American Girl play productions in my parent's living room for neighbors and family pets. After a childhood full of musical theatre, choir, dance, and improv, I continued my studies at Cal State Fullerton and Azusa Pacific University and received my BA in Theatre Arts.
After graduating I moved to the even sunnier Los Angeles and continued to search for winter. I have been lucky enough to appear in dozens of plays, musicals, short films, feature films, TV shows, commercials, and web series. In addition to acting, I love writing, reading plays, and producing quality work on screen and on stage.
Making live music continues to be a passion of mine- no matter the style. I sing and perform as a versatile lead vocalist for live events and studio sessions throughout California. You can catch me singing top 40's and standards to a room full of party people most weekends or traveling the US and overseas performing for high profile special events.
Kindness, family, empathy, and inclusion for everyone in the arts are all very important to me. I will forever love to travel, tap dance, discover new cocktail recipes, and dream of retiring on a tropical island with endless interior design magazines and a pet whale. <<
