Tiffani Barbour was born in Baltimore, MD and raised by a single mother who quickly recognized that her only child needed more than just herself, grandparents and an aunt for an audience. She placed her in a variety of programs, classes and lessons but, the first one to really stick was the Youth theater camp at the Arena Players Inc. when she was 9 years old. There she began to fall in love with performing and decided to spend her life doing so.
Tiff, as she is more commonly known as, went on to study Musical Theater at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia before moving to New York. She soon landed the role of Mabel in the European tour of "Fame-the Musical" and upon her return worked in various regional theaters around the US. Tiff moved to Los Angeles in 1999 to try her hand at TV and film. The mercurial nature of show business, after settling in California, she returned shortly to New York for a role in the CBS show “The Education of Max Bickford." Tiff was lead singer in a successful NYC band and was a partner in a small entertainment company, before her breakout lead role as Campbell in “Rabbit,” an independent short film that premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Prior to that, she played Ali in the National Tour of “Mamma Mia!” had small roles in two "Law and Order" series, co-wrote, produced and distributed her own solo album and performed Off-Broadway in "Hit the Wall" a play about the Stonewall Riots. In 2014, she turned what was to be a one-day-of-filming role in HBO’s acclaimed “The Leftovers” into a three-episode character arc.
After graduating from the Connecticut School of Broadcasting in 2010, she was introduced to The New York Sharks Women's tackle football team, serving as a reporter for the Organization. Other positions held during her varied career consist of office manager, social media director and talent recruiter for several companies. As a seasoned musician and writer, Tiff is excited to embark on a variety of projects from Jingles to Pop songs, a TV pilot and several musical theater pieces. A brand new musical animation called "Ziggy Francis and Her Amazing Adventures" and independent short film "The Cycle" (2017) both co-written with longtime collaborator Stephanie St.James are in the works. Tiffani splits her time between Portland, Oregon and New York City.
