Traycee's father introduced her to horror films when she was five years old. She didn't take to them at first because she thought they were boring. When her brother correctly labeled her a "chicken", her father explained that horror was make-believe and no one really got hurt. HBO became one of her closest friends and movies became a language.  ​

Growing up, she discovered a love for storytelling. Though acting was her main goal, she didn't have a solid plan on how to make that happen. After high school, a friend suggested she join the Air Force just to get out of their small town. The military forced her out of her shell and taught her to be self-reliant and a little more confident. 

 

After four years of service, she moved to Southern California to pursue her dream... but tragedy struck on 9/11. ​ She was reactivated and her plans were put on hold. Her father (a Navy veteran) said he'd come out of retirement to take her place. She reminded him that he had done enough and it was her turn to protect him. After serving eight years, she was medically discharged due to "friendly fire". 

Traycee booked a few acting gigs here and there but was greedy for work. While playing the waiting game, she found that her peers were creating their own content online during the early stages of New Media. Curious, she searched for horror online but at the time, that genre was nowhere to be found. It was then that she decided to stop waiting, make her own projects, and create work for herself. It was through this process that she found out how much she loved filmmaking. 

Throughout this journey, she snagged filmmaking gigs with Lionsgate, Legendary, and Nerdist, to name a few. Though filmmaking is a passion, acting will always be her first love.
