I'm Amani Dorn! This is my website! I hail proudly from Austin, Texas and after getting my MFA in Acting from U.C. Irvine and several years of my career taking me on many journeys across the country and the world, I am settling down (at least for now) in Santa Maria as a Resident Artist at PCPA Theatrefest! I enjoy many things like dancing, singing, acting, shopping and eating many things...but mostly cheese.
