Hello! My name is Mel, and I am an actor, voice over, and writer in NYC. I have studied under several coaches and teachers throughout the years, in addition to countless workshops with casting directors through Actors Connection and One on One NYC. Because I have taken so many workshops, I feel I am particularly helpful with offering insight to what makes a great self tape!
I am an excellent sight reader, and I am particularly good with fast paced material (or increasing the pace, a common note among self tape auditions). I love the creative process and can offer advice if needed (but only if you ask. I never overstep my boundaries)! I have great comedic timing, but I can also be your edgy/dark/sarcastic enemy.
