I grew up in a small town in ND and as a kid would envision myself in the movies. I saw myself in scene after scene but problem was, I was never speaking! And this explains my initial start as an extra many years ago. I started out hosting and producing public access and local origination programs. Had a great time doing that. I was cast a lot in many shorts when I started out. Loved it. Cast as actor in a couple independent films - Running 4 President and Redherringmovie.com. Been in commercials. My only national commercial was in Phoenix in Winter '95 and that was Century 21. I was the bride! It was great fun. While in Phoenix I volunteered in craft services for a few indep movies. It was fun of course, I love being on the set. And it was a good way to meet people. I also worked as a costumer on an independent movie in Phoenix I've been in a few commercials here in Vegas most recently for Lexus cars which is (Jan 2014) currently running. Best gig was working as an intern on Invasion MOW in Phx '96 because I was still pretty new to the industry and I was introduced to all the departments so it was a great learning experience plus people were really nice. I really liked working in the office and being on that set! Hard to believe that was so long ago! 2013 was a great year as I got back on the stage and performed in the Spring for Fringe Festival at LVLT and had two great roles playing Madame Yasmina and Reverend Hargrove; and in October I played Peter Quince in Midsummer Night's Dream at the Summerlin Park. I continue to take acting classes. Lately I've been doing infomercials, corporate videos and stand in work. And I'm getting a few lines here and there. Planning on making 2014 a very productive year. I love this industry and am so grateful to be part of it!
