Born and raised in Cumming, GA, Skyler got her start in the entertainment industry at age 6. At 10 years old after working in print, commercials and voiceovers she made a deal with her parents that if she were cast as the lead in a film by her 11th birthday they would move to California so she could pursue her acting career. Skyler reached her goal. Since then, she has developed a strong resume in film and TV. Music has also been a driving force in Skyler’s life. At age 10, she wrote her first song, but it was when she took up guitar a few years later that she really discovered her passion for singing and songwriting. Skyler is in the midst of recording her first EP, which will be released later this year.
