Early life and education[edit]

Boyd was born to a Navy family and thus spent much of her life traveling. She lived all over the United States as well as Italy and Japan before going to high school in San Diego. She was involved in school musicals from a very early age up through high school, performing in everything from The King and I to Cats.

After receiving her bachelor’s degree, Boyd modeled in New York City before moving to Los Angeles and quickly landing roles on the television shows Sons of Anarchy, The Young and the Restless, and How I Met Your Mother.[1] She utilized her science background cohosting the show Machines of Malice as a neuroscience consultant for the Discovery Channel. Boyd is also a Nickelodeon show favorite, guest starring on the shows iCarly, True Jackson, VP and Big Time Rush.

In 2009, Boyd appeared on 14 episodes of the popular web series The Guild. In 2010, Boyd co-created the geek girl group Team Unicorn.

Boyd’s gaming background has played a large part in her career. She cohosted the series Game Changers, a Top Gear-influenced show testing out video game tropes such as jet packs, parkour and lockpicking in the real world.[4] She has also modeled for the J!NX gamers clothing line and was named one of GeekWeek.com’s “10 Hottest Geek Girls”.[5] Boyd was also referenced in Diablo III from Blizzard Entertainment as a rare unicorn character named “Miss Hell” alongside other Team Unicorn members. She starred in Geek Cred, an office comedy set in a comic book store.[6]

Her feature film Bar America, directed by Matthew Jacobs, premiered at the Santa Catalina Film Festival in 2014.
