Born in Cincinnati, Ohio and raised in the Bay Area of Northern California, Erin grew up with an innate love for dance, theatre and the written word.


A graduate of Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelor's Degree in Dance and Theatre, Erin began her career in entertainment as a dancer at the age of five, and as a professional choreographer at the ripe old age of thirteen. She went on to choreograph pieces for feature films, music videos and numerous stage productions. As an actress Erin has landed guest-starring roles on a slew of popular network shows as well as leading roles in indie films. Most notably she has been cast in critically acclaimed shows like “NCIS” and “Southland” as well as popular sitcoms like TV One’s, “Love That Girl”. She is often recognized for her very memorable role in New Line Cinema's old school cult classic, “Menace II Society”.


Erin has since expanded her creative base by creating and producing content for film and new media. Erin is the co-writer and co-producer of an indie film entitled “STEM”, that will be released in the spring of 2017. STEM is a faith-based film that tells the story of three women’s courageous journey from tragedy to triumph. Erin is currently in pre-production with a comedic film that she co-wrote and will star in, entitled, Crazy About Erin, set to begin filming in the fall of 2017. Crazy About Erin will be executive produced by Erin’s film company, Wiley Film and Entertainment. “I am overjoyed at the aspect of not only bringing quality storytelling and diversity into the market place but partnering with others to produce projects that entertain as well as provide healing to the soul”.


Erin is using her gifts and talents to make her mark in both the entertainment industry and the world. She is the creator of The Relevant Post an online thought leaders forum featuring blogs and panel discussions on emerging political and social issues. She is the author of The Dunes, an inspirational faith-based book for personal growth. After witnessing readers experience life changing results from reading The Dunes Erin partnered with Cynthia Jackson of My Breakthrough Body to create The Awakening. The Awakening is a one-of-a-kind online course for weight-loss and inner healing. The course equips people with the tools they need to live a fearless fulfilling life, abundant in health and wellness.
