All that there is to know about the self proclaimed Voice Actor, Actor, Reiki Master, Geek.
Hey! How are you doing?! So good to finally meet you.
I'm Elisa and welcome!
A little bit about myself...I am short.
A lot more about myself: I am from a small town in south central Texas named Seguin and I am local to Dallas-Ft. Worth.
In my previous professional life, I was a union stage manager for regional theater and opera. I still hold my union membership to Actor's Equity Association. I would not trade those experiences for the world because of the many lessons I have learned....and I have some great stories, possibly arriving at a theater near you!
Needless to say, I came to my creative senses and formally affirmed that my creative self cannot be limited to just theater. And so, I jumped the production table to join the film, voice over, and screen writer community.
Currently, I am working with Glenn Moreshower in his Extra Mile Workshop. (He is wonderful, insightful and funny as hell.) Previously, I have studied with Bruce Carey of Voices Carey, Cathrynn Hartt, Brock Allen Casting and Sonny Strait. I am grateful to be represented by Linda McAlister Talent and AB2 Talent.
Making the leap to acting wasn't that big of a surprise to many of my family and friends. I attended Stephen F. Austin State University graduating with a BFA in Theatre with Acting/ Directing Emphasis. The stage management thing - I kinda fell into to that path. More on that at a different time...possibly in a project coming soon!
Since transitioning to film and voice over, I am grateful for a variety of projects, including: Murder Made Me Famous with REELZ Channel, Crypt TV, Southwest Airlines, FUNimation and 26-13 Media.
Little bit of Trivia:
- I volunteer my time to help teachers mentor their students in Technical Theater and Stage Management. Arts in schools have a special place in my heart. I truly believe it is where all students can feel human.
- I watch waaaaay too much Doctor Who....I sing the opening theme All. The. Time.
- I own the Harry Potter Wand that is a TV remote control. I told my husband that it was for him. It totally wasn't.
- I am a Reiki Master, a wonderful healing modality....think Mr Myagi from the Karate Kid.
- My younger brother is a Volunteer Firefighter....and I am So Very Proud.
So...this is me in a nutshell. A rather big nutshell, much like Seguin's Largest Pecan.
