PROFESSIONAL COSPLAYER & MODEL
I am a DFW based, but Houston born and raised, cosplayer and model. I am most widely known for my movie accurate Slave Leia and Rey. I have been involved with cosplay and modeling for the better part of the last 5 years. I was a theater major and have been acting my entire life, so cosplay seemed like a perfect transition from there to the real world :) My love of nerd culture started at a young age when my father introduced me to Star Wars. From there, I was irreversibly hooked. From Spiderman, to Harry Potter, through Lord of the Rings, and back to my first love Star Wars, I have a deep connection to all things nerd.
