    I am of Norwegian decent my mother’s maiden name is svendsen and have family members with the last name svenguard and Koenig. I am in my 30s but would be interested in the opportunity or any caring calls in Minneapolis. I have been featured on national geographic border security wars and have been an extra in Chicago med, Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, Proven Innocent and Empire. I would consider a career in acting and am looking for open casting call opportunities.
