I grew up in New York City and was a child actor, starting in commercials at age 5. I grew up in this business. Acting gave me a great eye for what works on TV, but I am more of a go-getter than an actress.

Cara Casting began as a conversation with a woman that would become both my business and life mentor. I spent the first few years pounding the pavement looking for real people and building my database one person at a time. I absolutely love the thrill of plucking someone off the street and putting them on TV. It’s like a treasure hunt and constantly finding gold.
