Candice hails from Long Island, New York where she was born from a Jamaican/Cuban Father and a Polish mother. In her late teens she transported to NYC where she discovered the “Artist” lifestyle. This led her to NYU, where she studied Educational Theater while on a scholarship for academics and springboard diving. She started her career dancing in the states and internationally for icons like Michael Jackson, Prince, Biggie Smalls, Ricky Martin and many others. She was a Knicks City Dancer while juggling college and appeared at the WORLD CUP in Seoul Korea. After booking over 20 national commercials and finding her way into the Independent Film world, eventually she made the transition to Los Angeles where she has been successfully working in Film and Television.
Candice has had a career filled with a range of color. She was hand picked by Werner Herzog to work along side of Wilem Dafoe in a David Lynch film, has been a key player in Tyler Perry’s Temptation, has shared the screen with talents such as Sam Elliot, Gary Sinise, and Simon Baker to name a few. You can also see her in the iconic opening scene of the Oscar winning movie La La Land, directed by Damien Chazelle. She was recurring on the hit FOX show Proven Innocent, and is now currently co-starring in Kevin Can F*** Himself with Annie Murphy for AMC.
In her spare time you can find her volunteering at Children’s Hospitals all around the Los Angeles area and giving back to her community as much as possible. She is also an ongoing player with Deborah Aquila in her Masters program.
