When I first got into acting, I didn’t know a thing - where to start, who to talk to, where to go, what to do, how to find casting calls. I was determined to figure it out and win big. And I did…both! I then grew a passion to help other artists do the same. Those with jobs, like me. Those with a family, like me. Those in school, like me. Thise who have a passion for this that won’t go away…like me.
