Hi there! My name is Shanta and I'm a bicoastal screen, stage, and VO actor originally from the DC area.

I have a B.A. in Theatre/Drama from Indiana University, have trained with Ken Schatz (2014-present), Jamie Castro, Shannon Bills, Matt Newton Studio, and Upright Citizens Brigade.
Happy to give adjustments/suggestions if it's helpful for you. I really love connecting and collaborating with other artists. Let me know what you need!
