Welcome to my new site! My name is Taryn and I'm an actress, writer, new media producer, idea maven and occasional blogger. I began producing in 2007 with the scifi web series After Judgment and am now in the midst of creating and writing numerous web and TV projects. I am passionate about creating story worlds that reflect the paradigm shifting times we are living in. I am proud to be a scifi geek and science nerd who also loves fashion and travel. I've been studying martial arts for the past 10 years and can often be found wielding a weapon and playing the 'badass' on screen. Please check out my two blogs: All Things T is where I write my longer posts dedicated to 'the future of art and storytelling in a digital world'. Operation BABE is about my journey to become the ultimate badass on screen and in life, and has tidbits of inspiration that I've found throughout the web.
