PASSPORT

With over 20 years of experience in the entertainment industry, I have established myself as a successful casting director with a proven track record of success.  My strong relationships with my peers, agents, managers, and actors, combined with an extensive talent database, allow me to find the perfect fit for any project.

As a skilled professional, I am well-versed in technology and have the adaptability to meet the changing needs of the industry. My passion, motivation, and organizational skills have contributed to my success, and my diverse portfolio includes film, television, commercials, and animation projects.

Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with major studios such as Sony and have seen my projects featured on platforms such as Netflix, Lifetime, BET, Amazon Prime, and more.

In 2023, two of my films are set to premiere at Sundance, which further demonstrates my commitment to excellence and dedication to bringing together the best talent and vision for compelling and impactful storytelling.
