Thank you for your support! In my role as a casting director, I hope to pioneer some change(s) in the way Hollywood casts our community in film, television, theater and dance by allowing me to give them some bona fide Indian people and not someone they've gotta try and turn into an Indian with paint, make-up and wigs.
