Off Off Broadway

Love Creek Productions

I am happy to announce that I am now a company member at an Off Off Broadway theater called Love Creek Productions!

Happy Dance!

I am looking forward to working on new works with new directors here in NYC! This is why I moved here. I am really glad to be getting involved in stage theater again. It is my home after all!

My counselor prescribes 4 hours of rehearsal a day.

Someday soon I will level up to Off Broadway, but for now, I am going to enjoy every minute of the my actor journey.

Close enough.

Happiness is not wanting what you don’t have, it’s enjoying what you got.

Another opening, another show. Cheers!

Summer Audition Reel

I was asked to submit for a project online and recorded a reel to send in. I feel pretty good about this recording and wanted to post it online!

This is a scene from the series Cowboy Bebop, the character is Faye Valentine.

The character called for this hairstyle. Yes it’s a wig! lol

 

Enjoy!

NYC Fringe Festival 2015

I BOOKED IT! NEW YORK CITY STAGE, HERE I COME!!

I am proud to announce my casting in “The Great Forgotten”, a play that takes place in the roaring 1920’s. Full of war, romance, and dancing, this is a show you don’t want to miss!

This new play will perform at NYC’s oldest and biggest theater festival: NYC FRINGE FESTIVAL. Out of thousands of shows, they only pick a select few to perform in the heart of New York City.

I’m very excited to be cast in a show with strong female characters and real grit. The 1920’s was turn of the century for women’s rights and lifestyles. They started to fight for their freedoms to live as they choose. These themes still apply today.

The show will run mid-late August. More details soon!

That moment when I realized I will finally be performing on a NYC stage…

Three Days of Glory Episode 1 Shoot

I had a lot of fun the first weekend of June with half of the cast of the new nerdy webseries, Three Days of Glory! Took a train out to location with my costumes and wigs in tow, excited to film our first episode with our new equipment we got through our Indiegogo campaign. I am so happy with the cast and crew. We get along so well and it’s always a pleasure to work with everyone! Nothing better.

Director, George Daileda setting up a scene.

After filming all morning (and waiting out a short lived bumblebee attack; they were very adamant about being in front of the camera),  I was able to snag a few photos of me and my show’s partner in crime in cosplay!

I can’t wait for us to finish filming and get this awesome series started! It’s gonna be a lot of fun, for sure. Keep a look out for more updates!

I had a blast at the World Premiere of the 1980’s style sci-fi indie cult film, The Protokon, at the Soho International Film Festival. Finally getting to meet the rest of the talented cast and crew and getting to hear the audience’s response to this amazing film made my heart soar!

It’s rare to find other truly talented artists among the millions of people in New York City that have as much heart as this group of people. I am very proud to be a part of this cast and very grateful that I got the chance to work with amazing director/creator, Anthony De Lioncourt.

I’m looking forward to working with any of these amazing people in the future!
