Hayley Daniels spent the first 25 years of her life in Hampton Roads, VA. She grew up in Newport News, earned a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre with a minor in Creative Writing from William and Mary, and then moved to Norfolk where she trained in sketch and improv comedy at the Push Comedy Theater. Over the past 3 years, Hayley has served as a theatre teacher for pre-teens and teens in the public schools, so yes, she is an expert on drama. Hayley is so excited to relocate to Austin with her 1-year-old lionhead rabbit, Daisy. She hopes to use her time at UT capitalizing on her life experience with angsty teens and preteens by developing dark teen dramas for TV, and work-place sitcoms about teaching the modern-day student. For fun, Hayley performs experimental theatre and writes sketch comedy. At home, she live-tweets TV shows while scratching her bunny's ears.
