Hard work makes it all worthwhile. But so does happiness and love.
Being a twin implies two of a kind, yet Mandi never had trouble separating herself from her twin brother, or the crowd. She started acting when she was six years old, auditioning and booking the lead in her second grade musical “Under the Sea.” Mandi’s early performances also included the leads in both “The King and I” and “Little Shop of Horrors.”
What came next was a bit of serendipity. Mandi continued to pursue her dreams, studying film and television at Boston University. There she cut her teeth in front of and behind the camera, as well as met her partner in love and in film, Dan Salem.
Mandi moved to Los Angeles and has since embraced every opportunity, taking her career higher and higher. Mandi has previously studied under director Katt Shea and comedian Marcie Smolin. She currently studies with director Will Wallace. Mandi knows her time is precious. Her victory over cancer gave her the confidence and strength to achieve anything.
