PERSONAL

Casting a profession that brings together all of the disciplines I'm interested in. I like that it's such a heavily intuitive process. My strength is the ability to see possibilities. I'm good at what I do because I'm eager to learn and I do so quickly.

KNOWS & LOVES ACTORS

I really enjoy mining for new talent. I used to want to be a performer myself, so I really understand the other side of the room. My empathy for actors makes it incredibly rewarding to align deserving actors with the right project.

SENSE OF HUMOR

The skills essential to comedy align with casting, because both involve imagining hypotheticals and picking up on the nuances of people. After years in the trenches of stand-up comedy clubs, I've cultivated a pretty solid sense of what's funny to different audiences. I'm very in touch with a wide range of comedy and acting communities. I also try to stay plugged into online platforms, like YouTube.
