FORMER BOARD MEMBER of the PHILADELPHIA LOCAL of SAG-AFTRA


 

As an elected SAG-AFTRA board member, I advocated forcefully for more work for our membership. I founded the Philadelphia Local's Business Relations Committee and testified on our union's behalf before City Council, helping put them on record in favor of expanding Pennsylvania’s Film Tax Credit program and also creating local incentives to increase regional production. I also created the Instruction Manual and Online Video Guide for our new Self-Taping Studio to assist our members with the submission of video auditions for jobs they cannot physically attend due to scheduling or geographic constraints. I also proudly represented Philadelphia twice at National Committee meetings in Los Angeles and believe that even though we are individual artists - sometimes competing against each other - we are always stronger together.
