LUCKY! I had the unique opportunity to be a kid again for 10 years while working as a casting director and manager of talent for Nickelodeon and The N Networks. While at Nick, I cast some of your favorite pre-school programming including "Dora The Explorer" and "Little Bill", oversaw casting initiatives for our teen programming block with shows like "Beyond the Break" and "South of Nowhere" and booked celebrities for shows and events, including Miracle's Boys, O'Grady, Kid's Choice Awards, and Nickelodeon's "Let Just Play" initiative to name a few.
After leaving Nick in 2006, my luck continued when I opened StarCatcher Acting Studio. With a focus on teaching for Film and TV, my students excel in an environment where they are fostered, nurtured, and challenged. In addition to teaching, my most recent casting credits include feature films, "Letters to God" and "Renee".
It's my job to help actors find the truth in the story and deliver an organic performance. As an actor, it's your job to tell someone's story truthfully, I help my students get there with a lot of understanding of who they are and helping them to approach each project with imagination, empathy and vulnerability. The best message I can leave my students with is to always remember, "while you're busy pretending, someone else is living the truth" and "if you don't see it, why should we believe it?"
My students can be seen on a variety of commercials, film, and TV shows including Lifetime's hit TV show "Army Wives", "The Glades", "The Originals", "Dolphin Tale 2", and many more!
