I spent most of my career as a casting director, most recently casting Redemption, for CBS, The Response, a short film starring Aasaf Mandvi, Kate Mulgrew and Peter Riegert, the feature The Northern Kingdom (Best Acting Ensemble at the Wild Rose Independent Film Festival), and my own short film, The Getaway. I cast independent films, Broadway, off-Broadway, regional theatre, TV pilots, NBC’s Another World and ABC’s One Life to Live, for which I won two Artios Awards for Best Soap Casting.
Early in my casting career, I worked for Joseph Papp at the New York Shakespeare Festival/Public Theater, casting over 25 major productions, including the Broadway premieres of David Hare’s Plenty and The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Rupert Holmes. I’ve cast for most of the major regional theatres in the country, including ACT in San Francisco, ART in Boston, The Goodman Theater, The Guthrie Theatre, Hartford Stage Company, Baltimore Center Stage, Berkeley Rep and many more. Early in their careers,I cast David Strathairn, Anne Heche, Nathan Lane, Nathan Fillion, Ryan Phillippe (when he was 14) and Hayden Panettiere (when she was 4!).
