Left a career in medicine behind to explore my truest passion; film acting, directing, and casting. I eat, sleep, drink and think film all day, every day. I am obsessed, and it makes me happy. Casting is what I love and what I feel that I was born to do. If you tell me to build you a cast of the next best show, I won't be satisfied until I find you the next Oscar winning star.
I bring a lot to the casting process; I'm well-educated, and I'm more committed than you could imagine. I bring improvisation and fun to each audition, and I put in the extra hours to make sure that every actor leaves the audition room feeling like they left it all on the table. Not a single actor has ever left an audition with me without a smile on their face.
