Amanda is a self-proclaimed "creative nomad" (she can tell you more about that next time she sees you in person) with an affinity for storytelling in  various formats. Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri followed by a 5-year stint in NYC and now residing in LA -- Amanda is an eclectic blend of all the cities that cultivated her. She is particularly fond of making, at the very least, herself laugh with awkward and/or ill-timed bad jokes. Amanda has trained at Scott Sedita Acting Studio with Tony Rago in the Sitcom program as well as studying previously under Donna Morong in the Professional Scene Study class at AquilaMorong Studio. She continues to dance both professionally in LA and unprofessionally publicly on the streets as the best bad dancer. If you would like to view her blog, head to !
