Born in Adelaide, South Australia.
Moved to the USA in 1981.
Divorced, 1 daughter.
Began dancing at the age of 3, at which time I could read well.
Began acting at age 10, by staging plays in the school assembly room, for the students to see at lunch break.
At age 13 began modeling, although, I had no real interest in it. I later became a professional model after high school.
In late 1981, I was shot in the thigh during a home invasion in Los Angeles. Doctors predicted I would not recover full use of my leg. Being stubborn, this pushed me to make a full recovery 7 months later, and even open and perform in a new dance show LEILANI'S POLYNESIAN REVUE.
I have lived and worked in Australia, Hawaii, San Francisco, Japan, New York and Key West. Currently living in Las Vegas, Nevada.
