New & Exciting!
2016 is turning out to be a pretty rad year! Travel, Love, Acting, Cats...my heart is so full. I recently filmed a very fun commercial with a group of lovely funny actors that I can't wait to share and this week I signed on with Church-Hugger Management and couldn't be more excited to start this new adventure with them. Keep it coming 2016!
I just spent nearly three weeks traveling around England, Scotland, and France and aside from the terrifying experience of learning to drive a large rental car on the opposite side of the road, the trip was incredibly inspiring and magical. Getting outside of the daily comfort zones is so good for artists and I feel a much needed resurgence especially in terms of writing. I'm excited to bring this energy into new scripts and stories and make something fun with other creative souls. Watch out for a couple short films coming soon.... !!!
Things I Currently Love (besides cat videos)
I was at the premiere of a badass horror film, 21 Days, Friday night. Check out http://www.21daysthefilm.com/ to watch the trailer and like the Facebook page for updates.
Also check out Armagayddon at Second City in Hollywood. So much fun!
Lots of good things have happened this year. Let's see, I got to play with swords and defeat evils from an alternate universe, got bloodied up for Women in Horror month, filmed a wonderful short for the 168 Film Festival, and just signed with the Robertson/Taylor Agency. I'm so happy I get to continue to play make believe with people I love and admire. Looking forward to more projects and maybe, some day, improving my guitar skills. What I've learned so far about guitar playing is I'm definitely not a natural. Maybe in 2015!
Happy New Year!!
Guitar lessons, web series, & choregraphy. Happy 2014, everyone!
Sunday & Skype with Space Jockey Reviews!
I had the pleasure of recently sitting down for a Skype session with Chris Rennirt of Space Jockey Reviews. We laughed, we talked about oranges, it was wonderful! You can check it out here and be sure to check out all the great interviews & reviews from SJR!
I just had the pleasure of being a part of BLOSSOMING a new play reading series presented by The Vagrancy in Los Angeles. Five new plays by wonderful emerging artists and such an amazing amount of talent and dedication in this theatre company. Keep an eye out for furture productions from them.
New Review for A Loving Memory
A Loving Memory was the first film I worked on with Herbivore Productions in Chicago and is one of my favorite acting experiences. It's true indie filmmaking at it's best and most collaborative. Space Jockey Reviews just published this piece on the film - thank you, thank you SJR! Also, for a fun behind the scenes, check out Herbivore Productions website.
I'm performing as part of a two-man improv team called Two Boot Soup! We're on Facebook and Twitter and perform around Los Angeles, including a monthly show at the Neon Venus theater. Our next show is Sept. 21st!
Thank you (again!) Space Jockey Reviews!
