Summary

I am currently a Senior at Middle Tennessee State University and will be graduating in May 2010. I plan on auditioning for summerstock theatres, Disney and Universal, cruise ships, and movies, among other things that I'm interested in. I'm also pursuing a career in Make-Up design in hopes of becoming a Make-Up artist for both glamour and stage/special effects. Ultimately, my dream is to work for MAC makeup, and any other cosmetic company that works in the commercial and entertainment industry. I also have beginning experience as a set designer, so I'm looking for any opportunities whether it's volunteer, non-pay, or a paying job. I will take anything to gain experience in this field.

I am also hearing-impaired and I am extremely experienced in lip reading communication skills.
