Casting Directors. Teachers. Coaches.

We met through the casting community and immediately bonded over our love of actors. We quickly realized that as teachers we both are driven by the desire to humanize the casting process and share what we have learned from being in the room. The Village was born out of our greatest desire to create a community of diverse and supportive artists seeking a place to connect, grow and explore.


We work hard to make The Village a safe and supportive space and we don’t do it alone. We have a team of experts who offer fresh perspectives on how to grow with the ever-changing industry. Our Advisory Board knows our work as Casting Directors and as humans who care deeply about actors, as they do.
