My Film Story
After spending almost 40 years as a marketing professional (International airlines and large-scale Real Estate developments) I turned my attention back to film after returning from 10 years of living and working in Loreto, Mexico.
I currently serve as President of the Board of the Cinevic Independent Film Society, am Vice President on the Board of the South Island Film Commission and recently retired from the Board of Women in Film and Television Vancouver (WIFTV). I am an active member of the Victoria film community in various capacities.
My first foray into the film community on Vancouver Island began with extensive actor training at the Screen Actors Studio (David Simmonds) in the late-90’s. After some early success, my real estate career took me to Mexico full-time in 2003. Although I returned to Victoria in 2013, family health issues were my focus until 2015 when I re-entered the local film community.
My local film involvement since that time has been extensive and varied. Having a strong business background has allowed me to assist with the independent film community where I frequently consult to and/or am engaged on local productions. As an actor, I am also frequently seen in local commercials for Tourism, Real Estate, Air Travel, Health and others and is represented by Ignite Artists in Vancouver.
