My name is Emily. I'm 21 years old and currently based out of Orange County, but I didn't start out that way. I actually grew up in a very small town in the Bay Area called Hollister. Now, I know when most people think of the Bay Area they usually think of really cool places like San Francisco or even San Jose or Monterey, well I'm here to tell you that's absolutely not where I came from. San Francisco has the ocean and a really diverse culture, Hollister had a bunch of farms..and an annual biker rally. So for 18 years I lived in the same house on the same street in the same tiny snow globe of a town where the popular teen hangout was loitering around Target and literally everything was at least half an hour away, knowing I wanted to be anywhere else. That's where I found my love for traveling. From little things like camping or day trips to the city to bigger trips to the Caribbean or Italy, these trips have always given me a break from reality and helped me clear my head in a way nothing else can. 


When I'm not traveling, you can usually find me hanging out with my cat, at the beach, or at Disneyland with my friends. There isn't much in the world that means more to me than my family, blood and chosen alike. Connecting with and getting to know people is something that has always been extremely important to me. Learning about people from all different walks of life, and realizing deep down none of us are all that different, but at the same time no two people are exactly the same. That right there is the thing I have always loved most about acting. When I'm struggling with a character at first I always remind myself of something my mom once said to me. I was getting frustrated because I was in the process of creating a character but the details just wouldn't come to me. I am extremely close with my mom and I tell her just about everything, so I went to her for advice and when I told her what was going on she said; "Well of course you don't know everything about her yet, you just met her! Why would she tell you everything about herself the first time you meet? Give her some time. Get to know her first. Let her tell you when she's ready." That has stuck with me for years, and it has helped me in my everyday life more than I think she will ever realize.
