Destini Huston was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she attended solely art-based schools. Developing a passion for performing at a young age, Destini practiced dance (modern, jazz, ballet, hip hop), and moved on to memorizing plays, rather than the Seinfeld reruns she watched when she was little. Some of her theatre credits include Disney’s High School Musical (Minneapolis Children’s Theatre), Force Continuum (Eclipse), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Stages), Cinderella (Stages Theatre), and Fashion 47 (Minneapolis Children’s Theatre). Most recently, Destini was proud to perform in two of Eclipse Theatre’s Season productions by playwright Kia Corthron (Force Continuum & Breath Boom).
Since graduating with her BA in Film/ Television Writing, and acting minor from Columbia College Chicago, Destini has had the opportunity to perform within various mainstream and independent film and television projects. Working with The Onion, Michael Slovis for Chicago Fire, and a collection of web series, Destini is proud to continually tread the line between screen and stage productions.
Outside of “the biz”, Destini can be found teaching dance/ fitness classes throughout the city, bingeing her horror movies/ shows, reading and snacking. So much snacking.
