Booked!Thank you to Jamie Castro and Lowy/Brace Casting. I just shot a role on the final season of Scandal. YES!! This office has been so good to me over the years. I couldn't be more grateful.

Wrapped! Shot my third thesis film at American Film Institute. Stray wrapped just at the end of 2016. I had the pleasure of attending it's premiere this October and am looking forward to sharing the film's success as it makes the festival rounds.
Wrapped! Shot my second thesis for a graduating fellow at AFI in the summer of 2016. The film Flesh & Blood is finally out of post and screened April 8th. It's expected to do the film fest circuit and I fully enjoyed working with Jorge A. Jimenez who plays Poison on Narcos.
Cast! Being a part of Hollywood Fringe Fest 2016 was truly inspiring. My play Politically Challenged wrapped on the 26th of June and was offered an extension run. What a great cast and a phenomenal talent in our writer/director Matthew S. Robinson.
Training! Advanced Comedy at L.A On-Camera with Jackie Geary and continuing to study How to Stand Out On-Camera with Jamison Haase. I'm laughing and crying every week. Acting is fun! :)
Training! Improv at iO west. Currently level 5B. Waaaaayyyy back in the day, I went through the Second City program in Detroit. Twenty years later, I'm playing again. I am finding the improv community to be the most kind, supportive and nurturing folks around.
A festival near you! The short film Whittier Boulevard, a rock'n roll fable about acceptance, family and coming-of-age. This little beauty of a film is showing at festivals all over the world, including all major US cities.
Booked! Shot a Co-Star role on Season 11 of Grey's Anatomy in April 2015, directed by Kevin McKidd (Owen). A huge thank you to Jaime Castro and Linda Lowy Casting.
