ABOUT ME

 

Leah grew up in San Francisco, CA.  After years of live theater and musical performances in the Bay Area she accepted a theater scholarship to Chapman University in Orange, CA.

 

After graduating with her BFA, Leah made the move to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams of show biz.

 

In 2010 she was signed to Pop/Hip-Hop record label, Monarch, where she worked with multi-platinum heavyweights Roy Hamilton 3 and R. Kelly.

 

She began touring the LA nightlife, taking the stage at the city's most legendary venues including The Viper Room and the The Troubadour and took a weekly residency as one of the stars of West Hollywood's singing burlesque spectacle "The Peek A Boo Show," opening for pop icons Ciara and Kelly Rowland.

 

After roles in several features, shorts and series, she decided to take matters into her own hands and began writing and producing her own content, beginning -naturally- with music videos.

 

In 2013 she attempted her biggest project yet- Destroy the Alpha Gammas - a musical comedy series about sororities at war which she wrote, produced and starred in.

 

DAG went on to gain international acclaim and win over 20 awards including a Webby honoree for Leah (alongside Will Ferrell and Aubrey Plaza) , two awards from the International Academy of Web Television and a Streamy Award nomination for Best Indie Series.

 

In 2014, Leah formed her own production company, Villainess Productions, aimed at featuring women in dynamic roles in front of the camera as well as behind.

 

2015 will see the premiere of Leah's newest project, "The Girl in the Green Dress" a dance/narrative hybrid drama about two 1950's housewives who fall in love.

 

2016 marks her debut alongside Academy Award winners Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins in the legal thriller, Misconduct, directed by Shin Shimosawa.
