Terrence is a proud New Jersey native who moved to New York shortly after high school. He sort of stumbled his way in front of the camera through various industrial work that supported him while pursuing his passion for writing and music. In the first year in New York he managed to acquire an internship at both Columbia Records and OK!
Magazine. Music journalism was the direction he had set out for himself [or so he thought.] As far as he knew it, acting was no longer in the frame...UNTIL he was referred to Maggie Flanigan, a renowned Meisner coach. Maggie gave acting a whole new meaning to Terrence. She once said to him, that he could not act his way out of a paper bag, and the amount of knowledge he knew about acting couldn't fill a thimble. That was all the straight talking he needed to whole-heartedly pursue the fascinating allure and power of humani through his craft as an actor.
Since graduating the conservatory, Terrence has filmed several short films and was a lead in the feature film April Grace [which is set to come out Fall of 2012.]
Terrence is thrilled to be working with PL Entertainment and the enthusiastic cast and crew of BROOKLYN IS IN LOVE!
When Terrence is not out hustling his actor face... he enjoys martial arts, motorcycles, mixology and Montauk.

Originally from Sierra Leone, West Africa. I arrived in the US at six years old due to the civil war that was tearing apart my native country "Blood Diamond". I started acting in college which eventually led to me dropping out to move to New York where I began my career with the NEC theatre company.
I enjoy acting because it allows me to explore humanity.
Born and raised in Hartford, Connecticut.
Though modeling was not her true love, with being 6ft tall and no desires to try out for the WNBA, she moved to New York in 2003 to chase a career in modeling. It was coming to New York that Keli met a diverse group of truly wonderful people who exposed her to the possibilities of taking advantage of all New York has to offer.
Remembering the time when one of those good friends of hers nonchalantly suggested she put her animated personality to work and look into acting, she got online one day and googled acting classes in New York City. Coming across Bruce Ornstein's acting workshop and giving it a try was the beginning to a love affair with acting. Til this day, performing has become the one thing that brings her the most happiness in life.
