BioI am a casting director at Binder Casting and a musical theatre addict. Originally from Florida, I graduated from the CAP21 Musical Theatre Conservatory and I am an alumnus of Interlochen Arts Academy. I provide casting for theatre, television and film. I am committed to diversity, inclusion and intelligent casting and have a passion for discovering and fostering new talent. My casting process eliminates artificial boundaries between theatre, television and film.
Fun FactI am a red wine enthusiast and an ice cream fanatic. My favorite movie is The Wizard of Oz (yes, I know all of the words).
BioI have been a casting director for 12 years and I work with hundreds of advertising agencies and production companies worldwide. As a casting director, I handle union and non-union commercials, voice overs, beauty, print and real people casting. Favorite projects include spots for Target, IBM, Apple, Kiehl’s, State Farm, L’Oreal, Chase and additional casting for the Beyonce VMA 2016 Lemonade performance. I have a great love for the casting process and continuously make sure no stone is left unturned when it comes to finding and requesting the best talent possible for your project.

BioAs a casting director, I have provided top-notch talent for commercials for nearly 20 years. I make the process simple for producers so they can focus their attention on other aspects of their project. I get exceptional performances out of talent because of my easy going demeanor during the audition process. As an improviser, I have a deep respect and connection for the improv community. I have deep ties to the dance community, close relationships with kids agents, and a personal love for sports, both watching and performing.
