I'm a creative person, working in various aspects of film and publishing. I'm a SAG eligible, non-union actress; a screenwriter and editor; a still and video photographer; a amateur film editor; an assistant special make-up f/x artist; and a production/director assistant. I do these things, and anything else that may come my way, because I truly enjoy working in the film industry. My background in publishing and all that entails has made the transition to film easier for me than for most. I give everything I do my all, and I'm not afraid to research the work. I take direction well and go beyond what is asked of me, if needed.
