Hi! I'm Ava. Thanks for clicking on my bio. I would love to read with you. I went to NYU and studied for two years with Bill Esper at the William Esper Studio. I've been a reader for multiple casting offices in NYC (including Brette Goldstein, Sig De Miquel, and Barden/Schnee). I also run a self-taping studio called WV4 Productions. My clients include newbies and series regulars.
I am an excellent listener and in the session I will take your lead. If you want feedback, direction, or script analysis - I will be more than happy to give guidance. My goal is to get you booked!
If I'm not on here, send me an email email@example.com or on IG @apaloma.
