Elizabeth Collins was called "eclectic" by her elementary school teacher. She has always had a varied sense of curiosity, leading her to write about many of her eclectic interests and experiences. She moved around a lot, and for half of her childhood she lived with her father and his partner in Dallas, Texas, a unique experience that has given her a different point of view on the world. She studied acting, film, and television, but found her passion in writing for magazines and telling not only her personal story but that of other complicated individuals and groups.


Elizabeth studied acting at KD Studio, the Actor's Conservatory of the Southwest and then went to The University of Houston where she received her degree in Film and Television.
