An up and coming urbanite with a degree from an eastern school,
Lexi just moved to Colorado from New York City. Lexi is the New
Senior Internet Media Producer for Lightspeed, Inc, a Denver-based
streaming media production company. She is driven to succeed,
partly from her upbringing, and partly by her desire to find her
own independence. Lexi grew up in a middle-class family, her father
passed away when she was 10. It was a struggle for her family
Single at age 27, she's dynamic and vulnerable, with a quiet sophistication,
and a history of troubled romantic relationships. She hasn't forgotten
the fairytale, but now she is focusing on trying to make the most
of her scholarship-provided degree and overcoming the obstacles
she faced as a teenager. Lexi leans toward refinement, likes nice
clothes and looking good. She has a contemporary style but is
very feminine and warm.
