Shereen Airth

For more than 17 years, I have had your back, worked tirelessly, and spearheaded the implementation of many reforms that have made life on set better for everyone. I am committed to strengthening our union by empowering members and advocating for strong industry relationships and protections. As a working Actor, Background Performer, Councillor, Advocate, Stand-In, OSLO, Committee Member, and past Caucus Chair, I am aware of the unique challenges of our industry and contracts. I want to continue to be the voice of all members in our rapidly changing industry, and welcome open dialogue. 


I have had eleven  years of working experience in the entertainment industry as an Artists' Road Manager, Production Assistant, and Events & Concert Coordinator with multiple production companies in Metro Manila, Philippines that are mostly responsible for producing large scale events and concerts, particularly International, and Grammy Award Winning Artists who held their concerts in the Philippines.

I've always been in love with music and film since I was a kid, and I am passionate about contributing, and making a difference behind the scene by rendering the best service I could give. It is so gratifying, and overwhelming knowing that I am part of the artists' success, and their production team.

I believe in teaching and touching other lives through motivation and good example by having a lifestyle worth emulating, with the command of a leader but the heart of a servant.

I would like to continue pursuing this passion to make a difference in the entertainment industry by offering my services. Given the chance, I believe that I will be a great asset to any production companies that will take a chance on me.

I am enthusiastic, always full of energy, curious, and always have a passion to learn new things.
