Adrianne Traylor is a native Texan, former massage therapist, lover of classic film, avid theatergoer, social justice advocate, writer and former actress who gave up her dreams of life upon the wicked stage… just in time to move to New York City! A former Broadcast Journalism student at SMU, Adrianne went on to earn a BA in Psychology and Sociology from Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, and a M.S. in Counseling and Development from Texas Woman’s University. She now toils as a college administrator and licensed psychotherapist while soaking up as much of the NYC theatre scene as possible, and writing about it when she can. She has also contributed, under a pseudonym, to several social justice and feminist blogs and websites, including Persephone Magazine, PostBourgie, Racialicious, Afropunk and Bitch Ph.D. She plans to venture back into acting again, through the craft of voice-over and audiobook narration. She hopes to follow in the multi-hyphenated footsteps of her dad, Denver-based director-actor-writer-documentarian donnie l. betts, and is acting as a research assistant on his latest documentary, on African-American historian, religious scholar and civil rights activist Dr. Vincent J. Harding.
