First Co-Star Booking!
After spending a year at The Green Room Studio, January of 2019 proved it was well worth the investment. I was called in for my first TV show reading at Karge & Ross. This was also my first audition for them as well. I booked the small role and filmed it on January 22nd. What a wonderful way to start the new year and I couldn't be more grateful for my teachers at Green Room who prepared me for this moment. This made me SAG/AFTRA eligible now and I feel I've taken a big step forward in my career. Keep a look out for me on Chicago Med Ep. #415. I'm the "Animal Control Officer".
ANOTHER STRONG FEMALE LEAD
August 11th and 12th, 2018
Katrina Reschke is an up and coming film director. She is currently a DePaul University film student and will soon be on her way to L.A. I've been so fortunate to work with her on several projects. The latest is a short film called World's Greatest. I played the lead, a farmer who was dealing with empty nest syndrome since her son left home for college. We shot for two days in hot and humid weather on a farm west of Chicago. It was one of the hardest shoots I've ever done but I really learned a lot being in every scene. Katrina and her partner Rio Fernandez have a promising future in the filmmaking industry, keep a look out for them.

They make you work hard at Green Room which is why I like it so much. Every week, we have a different teacher which makes us learn different styles and techniques. I love the intimate environment and I highly recommend this school to everyone in the industry.
