Hey, I'm Dana!

Bend, Oregon

Dana Fykerud is a writer, director, and actor currently residing in Bend, Oregon. She holds a BFA from Webster University and an MFA from the University of Arizona in modern dance, with an emphasis on choreography, directing, and performance. After earning her master’s, Dana spent a number of years in Salt Lake City, Utah, teaching dance and movement. In the midst of family life, Dana decided to venture into acting...and discovered a new love. Taking acting workshops led her fortuitously into community theater, and her onstage experiences evolved into acting for film classes with Shelly Lipkin, Kristina Haddad, and Michael Flynn. She soon understood that the genre of film captivated her like no other creative form.

In 2014 she relocated to Bend, Oregon with her husband and son. She was privileged to play the role of Amelia Everett in the web-series Twincidents in 2017. Needing a forum through which to express and to realize her artistic visions, she founded her own production company, Wild Sunflower Productions. Dana aspires to promote stories that highlight the trials and achievements of women, beginning with Red Wine Drive—a short film that she will be directing and producing in the fall of 2018. In addition, Dana is represented by Northwest Models & Talent and is consistently working on her original play, Threads, which she intends to adapt into a feature-film.

Dana believes in teaching empathy through non-judgmental understanding. Through her stories, she desires to encourage awareness of the difficult situations that some women face, in the hopes that people learn to develop compassion for what they might have always feared.
