In 1995 I performed with the Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre in my first play, The Littlest Angel. I even had a line! I was hooked and knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life in the arts.
I have included some examples of modeling projects I've done with independent designers and artists who developed themed shoots based on stories.
I must admit, having to dedicate myself to just performing made me feel like I was missing out on some of the best parts of theatre. Fortunately, my university required Performing Arts majors to take at least 1 technical production/design course, which opened the door for me to learn, explore, discover, and create in a whole new way. It was also a humbling experience and I make an effort to not only be kind to the technicians/designers I work with, but to always thank them for their hard work.
Being part of an ensemble is cool, but I found myself daydreaming about starring in my own works too often to ignore my calling. Thanks to the the many training opportunities out there I was able to make turn those daydreams into realities!
