Ashton Swinford began her professional acting career in Minneapolis, MN when she was cast in the country's first hip hop theater company, The Hip Hop Committee, as a spoken word artist and actor. Her roles with the company evolved to include many critically acclaimed performances and multiple sold out shows, drawing in crowds of people not normally interested in the medium of theater. Because of the company's success and her infatuation with theater's ability to stir up public emotions she decidedly returned to her hometown of NYC to further her career. After enjoying some minor successes in various film and theatrical projects, she dedicated herself to the art of acting with the Stella Adler Studio where she met her mentor and now co-founder of the IN THE MOMENT acting company, professor Robyn Lee. She has starred in many award winning films and shows, including Tribeca & Athens Internationals Film Festivals winning projects, and enjoys continuing to push the bounds of performance and inter human connection with experimental work involving energy, light, and the relationship between mind, body, & spirit. Ashton also recently published a book on her and Robyn Lee's work entitled IN THE MOMENT: The Art of Being, available on Amazon.com.
