LEAD in short film "The Fort"

An overly idealistic girl and a very logical boy who clash over the concept of true love and whether their debate can be solved with a kiss. And the whole thing takes place in a blanket fort! I play Savannah, a girl who is full of passion, adventure, and spirit, and has nothing but excitement and hopes for her future.  She believes in soulmates and true love.

LEAD role as the antagonist in short film "Man On The Phone"

I got to play the antagonist for a change! Reagan is a college student studying criminal justice-- she is calm, funny sardonic and calculated. Don't underestimate my smile! ;)
