Lexi discovered her love for performing at a young age when she got to be on stage for dance recitals and travel with a hip hop troupe for competitions. She grew up in Bend, Oregon climbing trees and producing events like “Circus Mania” with her neighborhood buddies. Any chance she got to put on a show, she did.
After moving with her family to Anthem, Arizona Lexi landed her first role in a musical, starring as Sandy in Grease. She went on to dance and act in many high school productions as well as community theatre. During her free time she’d make movies and do photoshoots with her friends in the desert. Lexi was also head choreographer for her high school dance team and she started Fashion Club, producing annual fashion shows.
After high school Lexi attended Arizona State University on a Presidential Scholarship. She majored in beer pong for a semester and then dropped out to pursue acting. She taught dance classes in Arizona to save up and then moved to LA for about 6 months before deciding to try a summer acting class in New York. She bought a one way ticket and never looked back. Sleeping on a cot in her friend’s hallway, waitressing, and studying Meisner, Lexi was the happiest she’d ever been. She fell in love with New York City and the craft of acting. Her studies began at New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, taking class with Jay Goldenberg and Steve Perlmutter. She took on-camera classes with Bob Krakower, Ted Sluberski and Darlene Violette. Then she began studying with Anthony Abeson (who made her not only a better actor but a better human), Sarah Baskin and Clyde Baldo. She studied improv at UCB and began building relationships with casting directors. Lexi started booking roles in commercials and indie films. Her favorite so far was playing the quintessential nanny in Mother of the Week.
Then she met a boy. And traveled the world, which became her classroom for the next couple years. She swam with whale sharks in the Philippines, went on an 8 hour hike in Norway, rode snowmobiles on a glacier in Iceland, learned how to kite board in Dakhla, and trekked thru the rainforest in Costa Rica. In Donsol she rode down the river at night and watched thousands of fireflies light up the trees. They danced to the evening moonlight and she fell in love for the first time.
She also did a bit of traveling by herself. Exploring Vietnam, volunteering at an orphanage in Cambodia, meeting the kindest souls in Siem Reap and wandering Angkor Wat. She traveled all around Israel where she scuba dived in the Red Sea and felt like the little mermaid on LSD because of how vibrant the colors were.
Her travels have filled her and now she hopes to take what’s inside and translate it into art. She’ll be documenting a lot of these adventures in the dark comedic TV series she’s writing called Misguided, about a sugar baby who becomes best friends with an ultra orthodox Hasidic Jew who has just left the community and is seeking guidance on how to live in the real world. Lexi’s also currently writing a film about a mermaid and a human girl who fall in love.
