“The most difficult thing in the world is to reveal yourself. As an artist, I feel that we must try many things – but above all we must dare to fail. You must be willing to risk everything to really express it all.” — John Cassavetes


Having cast over 75 Features and television series, including “Spartacus”, “Legally Blondes”,”The Outer Limits”, “Dead Like Me”, the “Stargate” trilogy series, and many more, I have been privileged to work with a number of truly gifted and creative  artists, spanning genres from family films to fantasy, comedy to science fiction.


Not unlike many casting directors, I started my professional life in the industry as an actor, first on stage, professionally, and then in Television and Film. Those experiences have informed how I approach my work as a casting director, teacher, and audition coach.


Having taught the Art of the Audition throughout the U.S, Canada, England, Australia and South Africa, my goal is to inspire the actor to take the next step in their careers with confidence, commitment and passion.


Auditioning can be a daunting experience no matter how long you’ve been doing it. There may be no one “secret” to winning a role, but there are effective tools to bring with you into “the room”  that can help create the best audition possible.
