Let’s work together.
I've spent my life doubting dreams, choosing practicality over happiness; in other words, I've spent my life "acting" like someone I wasn't: some sort of responsible corporate business yuppie. But a few years ago, I decided to stop hiding and start dreaming. Acting is the greatest joy in my life. Wearing a new face, taking on a challenging persona, spending days at a time living as someone else it's all fascinating, fulfilling, and what I want to be doing for the rest of my life.
I'm eager to join nearly any production simply because I love being on set, and I love working with other professionals in this Industry. I am incredibly easy to work with, never challenging, only inquiring with an optimistic curiosity, and always loving every minute of it. I can't wait to work with you!
