Born in Wheatridge, CO, and raised nearby in Arvada where her family home still thrives surrounded by unmarked graves of long-lost pets (miss you Teddy!), Keri Blunt was conceived probably as a “whoops” following her two siblings. The last one out of the womb and the last one out of bed on Christmas morning, Keri still loves her sleep more than any grown person should love her sleep.


Throughout her childhood as an aspiring nudist, Keri had a vigor for learning that led to skipping kindergarten and sixth grade. Somewhere in those formative years, she put some damn clothes on and, after graduating high school at age 16, a Valedictorian, she attended University of Colorado at Boulder and graduated four years later with a double degree in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and English Literature.


Now, pursuing a career in acting in Los Angeles, and more thrilled each day that she dropped her false aspiration to become a neuro-surgeon (seriously, what child says that?), Keri looks forward to achieving her true lifelong dream, an invitation to answer the Proust Questionnaire on the last page of Vanity Fair.
