    About me

    A little bit about me:

    Thank you for taking the time to view my profile here on Mandy.

    I am attracted to strong female characters with a bit of a twist to their personality and some kind of challenge to overcome--whether it be a treacherous business colleague, aliens in the house or a tragic, hidden secret. That being said, I am always open to the possibility of being cast in a role that I might never have considered, if only for the love of my craft and the joy it gives me to bring a character to life. I want to make films that are socially relevant and inspire conversation.

    I took my first dive into film production in 2015 with "Jimbo", the story of an Iraqi war veteran with serious PTSD issues, a film that is now available on Amazon Prime. Knowing that this industry is built on relationship and trust, because I have worked on the other side of the camera, I will treat your project with respect for your hard work and preparation.

    I look forward to hearing from you!
