Hey, I'm Tori!

Los Angeles, California

Born and raised in Santa Barbara, flamenco is what began Tori’s passion for performing which eventually led to acting. Tori began training with the Strasberg Method under Lorrie Hull and then transitioned into Meisner. She completed the two year Meisner training at the Joanne Baron/D.W. Brown Studio in Santa Monica and is always taking classes at the Lesly Kahn Studio to keep her craft fresh. To avoid getting bored and waiting to be cast in someone else’s production, she wrote, produced and acted in the half hour comedy pilot, "Barely Professional" and the short film, "The Pass", both of which have ran the festival circuit with "The Pass" taking home "Best Drama" at the Female Filmmakers Fuse Festival. You can also see her soon on FX’s "Quarter Life Poetry", which premiered at Sundance this year as well as multiple episodes in Season 4 of the YouTube series, "Total Eclipse". This last year, she has been doing a lot of commercial work while traveling back and forth from LA to Cambodia to direct “Where The Roots Lie”. With an equal passion for traveling/humanitarian work and filmmaking, directing something that has to do with the healing power of art just felt like the perfect way to merge it all!
