I began my acting career at around 39 years old working as an extra in many local TV and Movie productions. I enjoyed working on the set and got the "bug" very early on. I have always enjoyed pretending to be someone else and the joy of entertaining someone whether it be laughing, crying, or screaming. After several years, I decided to start auditioning for student and local indie projects. My very first audition for a movie that was never made, I received a speaking role. After that, I went to auditions any chance I could. I landed a role for a video-game web series called "In the Game: Modern Combat". This was a clever little series which we shot on a green screen and later video game backgrounds were inserted. It was quite an experience and I really enjoyed it.
After many years, in several films and TV series, I decided I wanted to take a screenwriting class and write a story that had been in my head since Ghostbusters came out. A paranormal thriller called "Soulcatcher". I took a 2 Day Film School by Dov Simens and started the process of gathering crew and cast to shoot my film. After several months of pre-production, I decided that I would just buy equipment myself and then I wouldn't have to count on anything or anyone to be available when I was, which was weekends. I bought a DSLR camera, a lighting kit, sound equipment and gathered a crew of fellow actors and others in the entertainment industry. We began shooting the film for about a year on weekends. Everything turned out really well and then it was on to post-production. I had a really good editor take the footage and polish it up. I am proud to say it is now available on Amazon.
One of my dreams was to do voice characterizations for animations and video games. Once again I decided to learn all I could about voice acting. I took several classes including one in NYC with Edge Studios. I started submitting to Librivox first and then eventually tried ACX. I have several titles on both now. In the video game arena, I have voiced a fan-made mod/movie for Starcraft II. I really enjoy doing character voices. As far as animation, I have been lucky to do 3 auditions with Funimation here in Dallas but to no avail. I continue submitting for ACX titles and doing whatever narration or commercials I can.
