I RECENTLY WENT TO GET NEW HEADSHOTS. MY FRIEND ELIZABETH HAD GONE TO JEREMY FOLMER PHOTOGRAPHY AND I LOVED THE FEEL AND LOOK OF HER SHOTS, SO MUCH SO, THAT I WENT AND GOT MY OWN!
THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF MY PERSONAL FAVORITES!
ONE THING I HAVE BEEN LEARNING AS I CONTINUE ON MY ACTING JOURNEY, IS WHERE I FIT IN THE WORLD OF TV AND FILM.
IN THEATER, I PLAY THE HARLOT WITH A HEART OF GOLD. THE ROCKER CHICK WHO WILL PROTEST FOR HER RIGHT TO PARTY AND BE FREE.
LATELY, I HAVE FOUND, THAT ITS NOT MUCH DIFFERENT FROM MY TV/FILM FEEL.
BLUE COLLAR, DETECTIVE, ROCK N ROLL CHICK WITH A HEART OF GOLD, PLAYS HARD AND LOVES HARD, POSSIBLY AN EX ADDICT, ROUGH PAST, TYPES.
I WENT TO JEREMY WITH THESE IDEAS IN MIND, AND HE HELPED ENHANCE THOSE EVEN MORE! BRINGING THE IDEA OF A "ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK" TYPE TO ADD. AND THE "GOTHAM" FEEL!
I ONLY WENT IN FEBRUARY BUT ALREADY THESE SHOTS ARE HELPING ME REALLY PIN POINT AND TARGET THE ROLES I FIT INTO.
IF YOU GET A CHANCE TO WORK WITH JEREMY AND HIS WIFE ANNA(MUA) I PROMISE, IT WILL BE WORTH IT!
Very Excited to Announce that I have booked a Principal Role on People Magazine Investigates "Cults" on the ID Channel!
Will be on set next week and I couldn't be happier.
I'm very thankful for the ID Channel and the opportunities they give to actors to be apart of real life stories, stretch their acting muscles and to get on-set training. It's truly invaluable and has taught me a lot about what could happen, the quick turn around of memorizing lines, techniques that the Director and their DP's will be using to tell the story and how to help them bring that vision to life as the actor.
This will be my 10th show with ID, my 2nd with the Casting Director and very much looking forward to rocking it out and bringing another story to life!
I AM SO THRILLED TO BE APART OF THIS PILOT "DORNALAI CAILIN". WE ARE CURRENTLY CROWD FUNDING FOR THE FILM, AND SO FAR THE OUTCRY OF SUPPORT HAS BEEN WONDERFUL!
CURRENTLY, WE HAVE REACHED 37% OF THE GOAL AND STILL GROWING!
I AM ALSO APART OF THE PERKS SECTION, WHERE IF YOU DONATE TO THE PRODUCTION, I'LL EDIT 1 SHORT FILM, REELS, WHATEVER YOU HAVE UP TO 15 MINUTES!
NOT ONLY ARE THE PERKS GREAT BUT THE TALENT IS SPECTACULAR TOO!
I CANNOT BELIEVE I GET TO WORK WITH THIS CRAZY COOL GROUP, MOST OF WHICH ARE ON TV, OR IN FILMS SUCH AS: THE BLACK LIST, VEEP, BLUE BLOODS, TERMINATOR: GENYSIS, ISN'T IT ROMANTIC, POWER, GIRLS, SEX IN THE CITY, EVIL LIVES HERE AND MORE!
FEEL FREE TO CHECK OUT SOME OF THE LINKS BELOW, AND SOME AWARDS THE PILOT HAS ALREADY WON FOR THE SCRIPT WRITING.

WELL, WE FINISHED OUR FINAL RUN THROUGH OF "ROCKQUIEM: A WRESTLING MUSICAL" TODAY!!!! AND IT WAS, NEEDLESS TO SAY, ROCKING THE HOUSE!
THIS IS A ONE DAY EVENT FOR NOW, BUT THERE WILL BE A COOL PROMO OF ME SINGING AND DANCING.
STAY TUNED FOR FUTURE READINGS AND PHOTO'S!
I have my own set up for Self Tapes and doing Slate shots in my home, and what better companion to do all this with than, Lady!!!! lol
She was so sweet! She made sure my feet were warm by sitting on them, stared out the window at all the loud people, (She's got a pretty solid stare that would make anyone hush!) and she even gave me a pep talk & some notes...lol
I'm very lucky fur baby Mama to have this little girl in my life.
My husband and I adopted her almost 7 years ago from the SPCASF. She's traveled with us from San Fransisco to Seattle across country, to New York, all while exploring the world on our laps.
I kind of think she's the bees-nees!
And if you are wondering who I'm talking to in the video, it's her!

I’ve never been a mom per say, but I have been a nanny, and am the oldest of 6 kids. So I guess it helps me know how to play a mom!!! Loved doing this simple scene but beautifully written self tape. And to contrast, the comedy after was super fun and very Femme!
Loving my new headshots from Jeremy Folmer Photography and discovering my love for this Dark Raspberry color! I never thought to wear it until I found this incredible "Cruelty free" jacket!
Hey West Coast! I’m looking at you!!!
So freaking excited to announce that “Trap Door”, a psychological crime drama, I wrote, co-directed & starred in with Raymond Lopez & Meghan O’Malley, is now an Official Coronet Selection of the “Queen Palm International Film Festival” in California!
This is the second festival we’ve been in! It’s crazy to think that we did this based on a small scene one fateful day, and decided to make a whole 20 minute short film.
This movie has a special place in my heart, due to some events based on my life. So it is overwhelming to see it selected!!!
HOW COOL IS THIS? I WAS LOOKING FOR THE EPISODE I AM GOING TO BE IN THIS MONTH AND I FOUND THE POSTER FOR THIS SEASON!
AND MY FRIEND ERIC AND I JUST HAPPENED TO BE ON THE COVER!!!
I'VE BEEN REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS EPISODE CAUSE I AM PLAYING A DETECTIVE AND I GOT TO WORK WITH SUCH AN INCREDIBLE CAST AND CREW, INCLUDING DIRECTOR JEREMIAH KIPP.
STAY TUNED! I WILL POST MORE DETAILS WHEN I KNOW WHEN THIS WILL BE AIRING!
VERY GOOD WAY TO START FEBRUARY 2019
