WHO I AM:
I am reliable, responsible, and responsive. And I really look forward to working with you.
My acting entails 3 V's that will make your next project a success!
VERSATILITY - I am a versatile actor. One who makes each character or intentions of the project shine.
VULNERABILITY- One of my strengths is understanding who my characters are. There is a line of vulnerability that each character must have. The vulnerability pendulum can be one extreme or another, or in between, depending on the needs and vision of the project/character. On that note, I am able to take direction well, which has been a success tool in my acting.
VICTORY- The characters/messages are portrayed in a way that success is the end result.
