“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts…”

-William Shakespeare

I have not formally worked as an actor.

As an “omnivert”, I prefer to be alone most of the time or have little contact with others but am able to match my personality to the context and setting around me.

In fact, I discovered in my late 20s that I am actually a “mimic”; which means that I easily and subconsciously adopt the mannerisms, accent, and other characteristics of those who I am speaking with.  For instance, after a couple days of traveling in Brasil, I am speaking English with a Brasilian Portuguese accent, though I do not speak a word of Brasilian Portuguese.

I have always wished for an opportunity to try acting.  I study people.  My entire career is focused around presenting and appearing in front of groups of people.  My only fear has been memorizing lines…  But I think I could be a compelling performer.

Maybe someone will read this and give me a shot.
