Kaitlin Bellamy

Kaitlin Bellamy has always been a storyteller. She grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina, where she discovered a passion for stage, and spent her youth performing in a church community theatre ensemble. From there, she moved to Buena Vista, Virginia, to study Shakespeare and Musical Theatre at Southern Virginia University. Through a series of life-changing events, Kaitlin then found herself in Orlando, Florida, where she now enjoys an eclectic and vibrant life as an actor and freelance writer. She has continued her education at a snail-like pace that would make molasses jealous, choosing to add Anthropology and English majors to her scholastic wishlist. She doubts whether she will ever actually finish any one of her degrees, but recently making her first book deadline gives her a small glimmer of hope. In the meantime, you can find her performing in local theme parks, narrating audiobooks from her home studio, and playing Dungeons and Dragons with her closest friends.To keep up with her adventures, feel free to join Kaitlin on any one of her social media platforms or her website.

The Kitchen Sink Challenge at Universal Orlando

Food. It’s not only necessary for us to survive, but we as humans have turned sustenance into an art form. And then, in an obvious leap from there, we turned it into a sport. It started off simple: a hot dog- or pie-eating contest here, a milk-chugging challenge there. It took a strange turn at […]
