AS A CASTING PROFESSIONAL, I HAVE A PASSION FOR WORKING ON PROJECTS THAT OFFER UNDISCOVERED TALENT THE ABILITY TO SHINE.  MY MOST RECENT CASTING WORK INVOLVES PROJECTS THAT PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES TO ACTORS BEGINNING THEIR CAREERS AS WELL AS PROJECTS THAT REQUIRE DIGGING INTO DIVERSE COMMUNITIES AND ASKING BOTH ACTORS AND NON-ACTORS TO AUDITION FOR NICHE ROLES. 

MOST NOTABLY, I WORKED AS THE CASTING ASSISTANT ON HOUSE OF CARDS: SEASON 2 .  I WAS PART OF THE CASTING DEPARTMENTS FOR THE AWARD-WINNING, INDEPENDENT FILM THREE BACKYARDS, STARRING EDIE FALCO AND EMBETH DAVITZ; THE FOX SEARCHLIGHT FEATURE FILM BLACK NATIVITYSTARRING FOREST WHITAKER, ANGELA BASSETT, AND JENNIFER HUDSON; AND THE INDIE FEATURE FILM GOOD FUNK, AS THE CASTING DIRECTOR.  

CURRENTLY, I DO A LOT OF FREELANCE CASTING WORK AND OFTEN SERVE AS A LIAISON BETWEEN UNREPRESENTED AND/OR NEW TALENT AND CASTING DIRECTORS WORKING ON PROJECTS BOTH HIGH PROFILE AND MORE INDIE IN NATURE.  THIS UNCONVENTIONAL CASTING TRACK HAS TAKEN ME IN MANY DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS: FROM SEARCHING FOR DRAG QUEENS FOR AN HBO PILOT, TO HOLDING AUDITIONS FOR 12-YEAR-OLDS FOR A HIGH PROFILE PILOT, TO REACHING OUT INTO THE WORLD OF FURRY FANDOM FOR THE INDIE FILM POTTERSVILLE, TO ADDITIONAL CASTING ON MADE WITH SASS PRODUCTIONS' INDIE SHORT FILM SIBS, TO CALLING NEARLY EVERY MUSICAL THEATRE DEPARTMENT IN AMERICA LOOKING FOR A YOUNG ELVIS TO AUDITION FOR THE LEAD IN A HUGE FEATURE FILM.  

I HAVE ALSO DONE CASTING, IN DIFFERENT CAPACITIES, FOR REGIONAL THEATRE, LOCAL THEATRE FESTIVALS, COMMERCIALS, AND SEVERAL NETWORK TELEVISION PILOTS.
