Experience - brief overview of your professional skills

My passion for film began at a young age, where my friends and I would make short films and put them into film festivals. Since then, I have been nominated for ten awards at the MyState film festival, coming home with five wins including most engaging talent and most promising filmmaker. One short film was selected as a finalist in the YIPS international film festival based in Toronto in 2016. I have stared in much unpaid, independent work, which I believe proves my passion and love for performing on screen. I have also had the opportunity to take the lead role in a professional web series and commercial which both aired in 2019. My most recent work includes being an extra for Stan's Television series, The Gloaming.
