ABOUT

I'm a classically trained actress and have studied all the major acting disciplines. Including Meisner, Stanislavski, Strasberg, Adler, Laban/Bartenieff Movement and many other well established techniques.

 

I love investigating human nature and discovering each character's story. Every role is unique. I pull from different techniques to get inside; thriving on making the physical and emotional transformations needed to express each character. Whether it be a role in film, theater or television, a voice-over role in which I get to utilize my arsenal of voices or when I'm hired to work in a creative photo shoot. It's my passion to explore and bring to life the human being that I've been given the opportunity to discover.  It's a gift each time I'm offered a new role.

 

Recently, I voiced the role of Mary in the animated feature film "Arctic Dogs," which had a North American theatrical release November 2019 and is now available on DVD and will stream on Netflix May 4th 2020.

 

Shelly is a comedic supporting character I brought to life in "You Should Meet My Son 2" which screened in many film festivals throughout the world. 

The comedic feature film "Tidy Tim's"  won best comedy in the 2020 HIRFF.  I play Julie a strong, compassionate nurse with a playful side.

 

 I wrote, produced and starred in the film, The Visitors, which won 3rd place in the 2018  Cinespace Film Competition and premiered at The Houston Cinema Arts Festival. 

Please, checkout the animated feature film "Doctor Strange," now streaming on Netflix. I voice a lead role Dr. Gina Atwater!

 

In my spare time I sculpt in stone and paint. I love creating art and am always looking for the next opportunity to do so.

Have a beautiful day and remember we are creating our lives one moment at a time.

 

Peace + Love

"Susan brought a nice package of skills to my project, in particular her strong comic timing and stage fighting skills. But beyond that, she's one of those actors who's just a joy to have on set. She can be laughing and joking and keeping the crew's spirits up one minute, and then focused like a laser the moment you need her to be."
