Grew up in a musical family where she learned to play the piano, accoustic guitar, and accoridan. She is also trained in several genres of dance since age 3: Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Lyrical, and Hip Hop. She began private classical voice lessons at age 12 and went on to be in many musical productions including The King and I and Fiddler on the Roof. She also was in a few operas including The Crucible and The Magic Flute. She segued into film (horror) in college and with only one or two horror films under her belt and no nudity, she began to be referred to as a 'scream queen' within the horror community. While appreciative of the support, she wasn't crazy about the categorization. Reason being, her background is mainly in theatre and music. Her debut album "Poet" was released in February 2008 and features a blend of rock, metal, classical, opera, new age, celtic, and goth. She still is involved to an extent in the horror genre doing an occasional cameo or supporting role and appearing at and performing her music at conventions.
