“Without wonder and insight, acting is just a trade. With it, it becomes creation.” ~Bette Davis
After 25 years in the business, my experience has run the casting gamut for every specification you can think of: comedy, drama, subtle, over-the-top, real people, dry, wry, voice-over, spokesperson, unique special skills, languages, every shape, size, age, ethnicity, union and non-union.
I’ve worked on big projects, small projects and everything in between — successfully casting indie films, award-winning documentaries, blockbuster studio pictures, and national spots for the Superbowl.
I also have a knack for cross-casting between films/tv and commercials. I’ve been known to push some creative boundaries and bring fresh — as yet unseen — talent to spot directors.
As a coach, actors are my passion. I work closely with my actors, gently but diligently driving to get to their truth — the “real performances.”
Using my spare time as a playground for learning, I continually seek out new ways to grow and have fun : life-changing improv classes, storytelling, re-discovering my childhood love of archery, traveling the world, and working on new ways to satisfy my iced tea addiction and passion for tennis.
My perfect formula for a successful casting : access to a robust supply of fresh and seasoned talent, abundance of diverse resources, a healthy dose of comedic relief, and a big helping of client support — I’ve always got your back.
