Growing up I was acting in church programs and in school but I did not realize until auditioning for a college’s theater program, that I wanted to seriously pursue acting as a career. Coming to Cal as a transfer I got to work from the ground up, getting into the upper division acting classes, being in TDPS productions, an ANTI production, and getting the opportunity to get some screen time in short films with the clubs on campus, I have been able to expand my knowledge of both on stage and on camera acting as well as working on various projects and playing characters that I never in my college career, thought that I could embody and be apart of. While I love the acting aspect of theater, TDPS has a plethora of courses that reach from being on the stage, to creating the scenes, lighting, and directing productions. There are many amazing and hands on classes that have shifted my view of behind the scenes work that I hope many of you will enroll in and get to see the beauty of it all yourself! If you have any questions on the audition process for either shows or classes, questions about the clubs and how to get some screen work for your resume, or any other questions involving the department please feel free to contact me!
