Early life and education
Morgan was raised in Los Angeles by her parents about whom little is known, because she respects their privacy; it’s believed that her father was a doctor, and that her mother was a housewife. Because Morgan hasn’t mentioned having any siblings, most of her fans believe her to be an only child.
She was somewhat thrown into the modeling industry at a very early age, as her parents took her to a couple of auditions, and subsequently she appeared in commercials for Kenner Toys, McDonald’s and Gerber baby food. Morgan wasn’t allowed to watch TV while growing up, so she compensated by playing video games on her father’s Atari console; her favorite game was “Combat”, until the release of “Phantasy Star” and “The Legend of Zelda”.
She was interested in numerous activities while attending a local high school, and played several sports with her peers, while she still spent the majority of her spare time playing video games.

Love life and husband

He’s the founder of the company Listen.com Inc., which has been credited with the launch of the digital music service Rhapsody.
