Desha Head is a SAG-AFTRA actress known for Band of Robbers, Office Games, and Superstore. Her love for acting began at a young age when she realized she had the ability to keep the attention of the audience in plays at school and church.

Tenacity combined with respect for fellow artists is what drives Desha’s success. We are honored to help Desha with her financial needs to support her as an artist. Meet Desha in our new Member Stories spotlight.
