Hello hello friends! I'm so sorry for the hiatus that's been on this website, so many things have happened since graduation and it's only now that things have settled down a bit. If you could use a giggle, click on the video above and then keep on reading.
So, since my last post, I've graduated from USC (you're looking at a degree-holding human!) with a B.A in theatre and a double minor in film and business. Graduation was an amazing flurry of anxiety and excitement that ultimately boiled over and I am so so so grateful to my family for being there to help me out. I was able to find an apartment and move the day right after I graduated with their help.
Since then, I've undergone a change with representation and am now very happy to say that I'm represented across the board (that means both commercially and theatrically) by Green and Green Talent. They've been really great so far and I'm very excited to see what happens with this new relationship!
I currently reside in Culver City, and I've spent a lot of time trying to become a Culver City local. If you ever need restaurant or hiking recommendations, I'm your girl! Or if you're ever in town, shoot me a message and I'd be happy to show you around!
Acting wise, I've been polishing and refining myself so I'm at my peak for audition season. I got new headshots done (some of them are over at the photos page!) and I had the opportunity to work with the lovely Tiffany Stevens again on a short little ditty called Blue Milk. I also got together with long-time bff and wonderful human Bailey Heinonen to film a short that should be out soon, and I've been auditioning all around LA and doing self-tapes. I'm also currently taking a sitcom acting class at the Scott Sedita Acting Studios in Larchmont, and I love this class so much.
I always leave feeling better and with a belly full of laughs. Seriously. If you're an actor and thinking about taking an acting class, I highly recommend this one.
If there's anything I've learned in the abyss of post-graduation that we call "real life" it's really to not take yourself too seriously. Don't get me wrong, it's important to hustle and grind, but don't forget to recognize the joy in your life. Do a few things a day that make you happy, whether it's listening to your favorite song, treating yourself to another piece of chocolate cake, or chatting with a friend (or your mom. Definitely call your mom more often.) And especially for actors, find a way to create and keep that spark of your artistry alive.
So, here's to the future!
