Sandy Smith-Distel: Hippie Woman
I am what you call a Southern Illinois girl, considering I was born there. I am related to the Prince of Monaco and I am titled with Lady Sandy. I've been married for 13 years to a wonderful man. I have two grown children and four stepsons, and 17 grandchildren. I've been a successful bridal shop owner, I've served in the United States Army, and honourably discharged. I moved to Ft. Worth, Texas and lived and worked there for 10 years and then moved to Tucson, Arizona.
I was gainfully employed for 38 years, and so in the year of 2000 I retired. So after retiring I loved sewing, playing tennis, softball, but I wanted to do something different. So I decided to get involved in acting. Far from being a Paralegal. I started this venture in 2007. My first film was a Pima Community College Media film for the Film Arts Class. It was called “THE ADVENTURES OF ACE PROTON”, while filming “THE ADVENTURES OF ACE PROTON” in the day I would leave this set and go to my second film I was working on which was "Last Man" AIA Productions. My next film was“COMET IMPACT” with Darlow Smithson Production, and followed by these various film productions:
“INGENIOUS” Pacific Productions
Jeff Balsmeyer - Director
With this next film I worked with the crew:
“THE 13TH HOUR” Memphis-Wardrobe
Pearry Teo/Stephanie Joyce
“THE 13TH HOUR” Necromentia-Wardrobe/Props
Teo Ward Productions
In this film I was used as an extra of which I used to doing. Except it was for an MTV video for Russian. It was an interesting film though and I enjoyed working with the Russians.

May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
