A Picture of Dawson White

Dawson is a writer, actor, and knowledge lover. Much to the dismay of friends and baristas alike, she was not named after the ‘90s teen drama, so don’t even ask. She grew up in Missouri where she was reared on The Eagles and Talking Heads, and spent her younger years reciting their lyrics from her highchair theatre. She’s since grown a few feet, broadened her musical horizons, and relocated to the shining metropolis of Los Angeles where she gets paid to pretend she’s other people. You might recognize her from a slew of music videos and commercials. You might not.  She almost passed out when she saw Robert Smith and likes to assume she is, in some way, related to Jack White. She loves Batman and traveling and hopes to lead a movie-worthy life (complete with killer soundtrack) in which she seamlessly melds the two together.
