Acting has always been Cara’s greatest passion. Though she studied the craft for years, it wasn’t until this past year that she was able to devote herself completely to it.

Cara's artistic journey began as a singer/songwriter and recording artist when she signed with Sony Music Entertainment to release her debut album. She has graced the stages of Johnny Depp’s Iconic Viper Room in Los Angeles on the Sunset Strip, Ultra Music Festival Miami, Singapore, and South Africa in 2016, and Coachella in 2016 and 2017. She has also collaborated with the globally renowned DJ Black Coffee.

Beyond art, Cara was an Elite Athlete. On three occasions, she competed at the highest level in the equestrian sport at the World Equestrian Games. This life experience instilled in her a profound work ethic, resilience, and the ability to maintain physical and mental health to excel in high-pressure environments.

Academically, Cara proudly holds a Master’s in science health psychology degree, a testament to her unyielding pursuit of deeper human understanding. This life experience afforded Cara unique insights into human behaviour and emotions, allowing her to delve into the complexities of her characters and bring depth and nuance to her performances.

Her dedication to acting was honed at prestigious institutions such as the Howard Fine Institute in Los Angeles and the Professional Actors Lab with David Rotenberg. She is currently enrolled online with Ivanna Chubbuck. Cara's commitment to the industry is evident in her creation of original works; she is in the process of writing two film scripts and a series and is shooting her first short film, which she wrote and will co-produce.

For Cara, acting is cathartic. It allows her to confront and process unresolved emotions and to revisit and resolve past interactions and experiences. Her deep love for people drives her to bring important stories to life. She has already shared this gift through her music, and she is thrilled to expand this expression through acting. Cara's life is a testament to her pursuit of excellence in all endeavours. Her journey as an actor promises to be no different, as she continues to aim for nothing less than the extraordinary.
