Twins. Actors. Filmmakers. Air Force Veterans.

Heidi and Heather grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan - a beautiful and rustic location affectionately known as the “U.P.” It makes them certified Yoopers. They began performing at the age of three in tap dance recitals. Dance led them to theater, and theater led them…into the military? They both joined the Air Force upon graduating High School, where they went to boot camp and tech school together and became Command Post Controllers. Being stationed apart, they traveled the world and had many interesting and wonderful experiences. After active duty, they began training at The Second City in Chicago, which renewed their passion for performance and the creative arts. Now actors and filmmakers, they love the ability to perform and tell stories by creating their own projects.

Heidi and Heather have completed several short films and commercial parodies that premiered at local and international film festivals. Their web series “Brews and Broomsticks” was nominated for Outstanding Ensemble Cast in a Comedy at LA Web Fest. They recently completed filming “The Yooper Project” - a mockumentary film about two Yoopers. They were also in this adorable twin Citi Bank commercial.
