About Joya Mia
Joya Mia grew up in Littleton, Colorado, then got the h-e-double-hockey-sticks outta there upon graduating high school. She studied theater and writing at Sarah Lawrence College, but also took a bunch of classes for funzies, later realizing they would do nothing to pay back the exorbitant loans needed to attend said college (Lookin’ at you, ‘Images of India: Text, Photo, and Film'...). She studied Commedia dell’Arte in Arezzo, Italy, and later lived in peanut shells across New York City performing with her sketch team, STuFF. She relocated to LA to star as “John Connor” in Terminator Too: Judgement Play, and “Tyler” in Point Break Live! You can see Joya as “Meg Ryan” in Tom Gun Live every month at Catch One Nightclub. Joya hosted a short-form news show on The LipTV, and co-created/hosted Oh, That’s a Thing! – a podcast about the real “stuff” in your favorite sci-fi movies.
In short, Joya’s an eccentric dreamer – a real smarty-pants who can DANCE.
