Actor & Model
The perfect combo of low-key and eccentric, Tanieka was born in the beachy metropolis of Miami Florida to Ann of Kingston, Jamaica and Roger of Georgetown, Guyana. She grew up deeply rooted in culture, spending weekends on a soccer field with an Uncle and Dad who religiously played soccer, competing mostly against Spanish speaking teams across South and Central Florida. During school years, she inevitably found herself on either the school choir, theater, dance class, modeling or doing the school news. After attending a couple of performance summer camps she became sweetly bitten, in her words, by the acting bug and became heavily involved in short skits and plays. Not initially thinking of a career in acting, she went on to pursue a Bachelors Degree in Business and opened a business of her own. Well that "acting bug"never left and eventually acting took on a much deeper meaning and purpose. Tanieka has since been cast as a Principal in the upcoming Web Series “Perro Why Not”. She is also a part of the production of the award-winning series “Bae Night”, currently in production for season 2 and cast for season 3. She has been selected as a Principal in a recent SAG Sleep Study commercial and knows no limits! An actress who is very aware of her role to play the lives of others on screen, Tanieka is becoming and embodying the change she wishes to see in humanity.
