I am an actor who has been hired for background work in feature films, television, and short films. In the past 1-2 years, I have had speaking roles in short film, pilots, educational training videos, documentaries, and the Standardized Patient Program. While working full time for the State of California, I have managed to be cast in 14 projects, with no agent representation. In my younger years, I was in theater and became a Certified Professional Model.
My current project is:
First, and foremost, I choose to be a RESPECTED actress who takes my role(s) very seriously. Every project that I work on will be given 150% by me as well as my total, undivided attention. My dream project is one that will allow me the opportunity to showcase the talent that comes from deep within my soul in a caring, sincere, nurturing and intense manner. An added bonus for me would be to have a speaking role in a film that will provide SAG status, thus, opening up more doors for me as a professional actress.
