    Hello my name is Serji Martinez and I’m highly interested in being part of the area 51 soldiers scene. Now I don’t live in the area but I’m willing to travel. I’m trying to start my acting career and I’m anxious and eager and willing to work any dates. I am self employed so I can call off when I like. I have a strong passion for film and I would love to start my career on ID2. I think I would meet the qualifications to portray a soldier. I also have experience in fire arms so if you can please contact me back, I will highly appreciate it. Thank you, I’m looking forward on hearing from you … Sincerely,
    Serji Martinez
