I have a passion for teaching and leadership because of some great training experiences coordinating mission trips, cabin leading and directing a horse program teaching 150 kids a week how to communicate with horses along with joining drama activities.
It all started as an extra for the movie End Game with Cuba Gooding Jr. They needed a crowd of people. I responded with my info and was placed in the scene as secret service. I had no idea you could get paid to act in the Northwest. Called back a second day for a different scene I had the time of my life. After compliments from others and prompting from the local Big Fish Agency I decided to take a Commercial acting work shop. I fell in love with the whole experience and was booked for my first big commercial 2 weeks later. A well paying job was the icing on the cake for all this fun! Hooked for good.
After several commercials and months of intense training 12–20 hours per week, I began to teach classes and manage the Actors Academy while the owner shot movies out of state. A year later, Fall of 2005, I decided to open The Acting Center in Post Falls Idaho. Designed to help those people like myself learn to audition for commercials and movies in our local area. The Acting Center expanded shortly after with more instructors coming on board to teach Modeling, Voice, Advanced acting Hip Hop and basic Ballroom, Cha Cha and Salsa lessons.
Since then I have had some amazing opportunities as Past president of film Alliance NW. and AD on film in LA. Cast many local productions, Directing a play and film, but I have never left my passion. Acting is the art of getting to know ourselves first and knowing how to move from neutral.
We will learn about emotions and auditioning. Ill talk about marketing yourself and how to play well. Bring a note book and a smile lets have some fun!
