A few years after high school, I relocated to North Carolina where I continued my career in Acting and Modeling. I took countless acting classes and seminars to enhance my craft and become a better performer.

From there I have been blessed to partake in other wonderful productions such as Beautifully Insecure by Director Nakia Hamilton, What Would You Do by Producer Rashed Myers, But Deliver Us From Evil by Director Joshua Coates, Ride With a Vamp By Michael Buie, Hurt People Hurt People by Reggie Adams, Blue Crossing by Nick Dalmacy, Lover's Lane by Karlton Clay, The Bridge TV Series by Brandon Bias, Investigation Discovery's Enquiring Minds - The Jodi Aria's Special by Director Rex Short to name a few. There are plenty more productions soon to come so stay tuned for more of Yesse Rodriguez.
