My name is Sandy Garza and I am a bilingual actress/model/designer from Houston, Texas. It’s not widely known, but I graduated with honors from the Art Institute of Houston with a BFA. After being laid off twice from two different architectural firms, I felt I needed to explore a different career path.
I started out in the entertainment scene by modeling for national magazines. I had always dreamed of working in TV and film but didn’t know how to get my foot in the door. After accompanying an actor friend to set and seeing the gears of a real production turning and working together, I was hooked.
My first acting roles were for local short films, but it wasn’t long before I was booking commercials, music videos and even TV and film gigs. It was a dream come true, but my tendencies for design concepts kept pulling me towards working in art department.
Whether I’m working in front of the camera or behind the scenes, I believe in putting in the hours and elbow grease to make a project happen.
