I love acting. I've been acting for most of my life. I suppose I didn't have a choice after my mom started bringing me to auditions for shows she wanted to be a part of. I started with community theater in 1996 with Oliver, followed by Oklahoma, The Glass Slipper and more. In junior high and high school I never missed a chance to be a part of the spring plays including Get Smart, Sound of Music, Wizard of Oz and The Music Man. After high school I spent three years as costumer for Troy Christian High School. I also returned to community theater with the West Milton Players and acted with Mayhem and Mystery professional dinner theater for four years in Dayton and Columbus, OH, a company that performed interactive murder mysteries. Now located in Florida, I didn't waste time snagging the lead role in Catch Me if You Can at The Barn community theater. I have also performed professionally for Bonnybrook Farms in Ohio during their annual historical wagon rides as a reenactor and recently in a commercial for life jacket and boat safety in Stuart, Florida.
As a photographer, I have owned my own studio, Studio 509 Photography, formerly A. McDaniel Photgraphy, since 2005. I specialize in creating stunning portraiture for families, high school seniors, weddings, and events as well as acting headshots. I also have over 6 years of experience in photojournalism working as a freelance photographer for several local newspapers and magazines.
