About Your Reader: After completing my college education with a degree in Electronic Media, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia. There, I had the privilege of working on popular TV shows such as The Walking Dead, Halt and Catch Fire, and Atlanta, specializing in the camera department. However, my passion for acting eventually led me to Los Angeles. I began working with a self-tape company, and gained valuable experience filming and editing actors’ auditions. I have personally observed an improvement in the quality of my own self-tapes when produced in a professional studio environment, complete with a seasoned reader and top-notch equipment. This realization reinforced my belief that every actor should step out of the comfort of their own home and invest in their future. There’s an undeniable difference in the impact and effectiveness of auditions when facilitated in a studio setting, and I am passionate about encouraging fellow actors to make this worthwhile investment in their craft.
