    About me

    Quite a challenging role for me was when I played an American medical doctor making use of my 10 years acting in New York.

    I'm currently auditioning like a fiend because I really want to improve and build my reel because although I've worked a lot, things change like quality of reel, age and so on...and I'm getting booked for corporate work more and more while still enjoying character work.

    Roles I typically cast for and receive are business people, doctors and professionals as I am very familiar with the corporate world, as well as mothers, wives, friends and more.

    I've been acting for twenty years and like to keep my hand in whether it's small or large budget and love to help out on student projects occasionally, especially when there's the possibility of more reel and putting my skills into practice!

    Although I have acted on stage in NYC, my love is film, it just is.
