Networking is Essential
People you meet can be a huge influence on your life.
Ok! So, It started with a developmental reading Allison Reeves asked me to sit in on. After the reading while socializing over a bottle of wine, a group of young actors decided to create a think tank. While discussing the mission of said think tank, I was invited to attend the birthday party of Lawrence Evan’s, a well known casting director in the black artist’s community. At this party I come across Mike Jones, a fellow actor who had done a staged reading with me previously. He suggested I audition for a play he was doing in the fall.
I make the call, audition for Lorna Littleway & Bada Bing, very soon after I become the newest cast member of August Wilson’s Women!
What began as a reading turned into booked work…this is effectively how dominoes fall. 🙂
