Dear Mr. Johnson —

Acting is more than simply pretending to be something or someone I am not. It is about storytelling. And having the ability to learn how to story-tell in a relatable, emotional way. I want to help create visceral experiences no matter where that is.

During my tenure as a previous Actor I was able to:
Was an actor for an Instagram Live show.
Was a set extra for more than 15 different feature films.
Was a set extra for more than 8 different broadway shows.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
