By age 16 she was playing the lead role in Caitlin's Way for Nickelodeon. After two seasons, however, it was canceled.

Frustrated with Los Angeles, she recently moved to NYC to try and get her career back on track.
Hometown: San Diego, CA

Since arriving in LA, she's taken several acting classes but still has to work as a hostess to support herself. She is so focused on getting people to judge her based on talent, not looks, that she recently died her blonde hair jet black.
