It’s been a GOOD month– booked two projects: a photoshoot and a commercial.
I’ve also been taking a little time to create films and scenes by myself, to keep learning about the camera and practice my talents as a storyteller and an actor.
Here’s a little two-minute film I made recently about fighting through self-doubt to follow your dreams, in the context of a screenwriter:
Changing things up to challenge myself by making a comedy web series: Making It! I decided to launch a crowdfunding campaign on July 16, and the Universe granted that wish in ONE. WEEK. I am beyond grateful that 50+ people believed in me and this idea enough to crush our goal in less than seven days. So… we’re making the series!
Check out our promo video below to get a little taste of what the series will be like!
Jumped into classes with the incredible Alex B Collins, and my self-tape game is getting stronger by the week!
Booked and filmed a commercial for City Bank, check it out below!
Officially represented by Pastorini-Bosby Talent Agency! I’ve been wanting to work with these ladies for a few years now, so I’m extremely happy to become part of the Pastorini-Bosby family.
I’m gearing up to direct Becca Brook’s vulnerable and powerful short film, Insomniac. I’m humbled that Becca chose me to bring her vision to life, and I can’t wait to shoot it in late January. I have the amazing Sheilava by my side, so I know it’s going to turn out fantastic!
Thanks to the lovely Kristine Canterbury, I have some stellar headshots!
In other great news, Positive, a short I collaborated on with Sheilava & Anton Savenko, has been rocking the festival circuit. If you would have told me that a short film I came up with almost on the fly was going to be an official selection at 10+ festivals and earn nominations for Best Director, Best Short, Best Song, Best Actress and Viewer Impact, I would have called you crazy. I’ve now received a “Best Female Director” award! Where’s that head exploding emoji when you need it?
I started up classes at Stella Adler’s LA program: the Art of Acting Studio! Despite a crazy year for everyone, I’m so grateful to take classes online from training programs I may not have had access to normally. I have learned so much in this Scene Study class with J. Claude Deering, where I worked on Diana’s monologue from Network (1976). It feels so refreshing to be constantly working on my craft.
A year passed between the concept and creation of my passion project, DAWN. My goal with this film is to inspire people to live in the moment and disrupt preconceived notions about how life is supposed to be, and make it what you want. NOW.
It was a lot of hard work to produce, direct and act in this one… but it was so worth it. My team was incredible and we are officially submitting it to festivals!
Allergies, a high-concept narrative dealing with issues of racism in the near future, has been making its way through the festival circuit! I was honored beyond belief to take the lead role in this film.
CLEANSE is complete, thanks to an amazing team of women! Off to film festivals!
I’m embarking on a new film adventure of my own–gearing up for directing my second short film by the end of the year!
On August 31 at 12:02 a.m., this little guy came into the world.
And just two days before my due date, I filmed a commercial for Ascension Health System!
I booked and shot a fun YMCA commercial in Dallas, and got to work with the always pleasant Sydney Taleah again!
I also played Amanda in the short film ‘Plan C’ down in Houston and (surprise!) my character and I are both pregnant! You really have to get into these roles, you know?
I worked with an awesome team of women filmmakers on a short film entitled ‘Cleanse’ that deals with the concept of pranic healing, where I played the role of Jessica. It was an honor to play opposite Katy Atkinson. If you’ve never seen her act, you are missing out.
After about a year of work, Brunch is a wrap!
I was honored to film the music video for Stephanie Rice’s first single since appearing on The Voice Season 12, Let Me Go.
I returned to Houston to film a mob-style short film entitled, ‘The Contract’, directed by Zach Salazar.
I played the nerdy antagonist, Melissa Jones, in the short comedy film ‘Shh!’
Along with director Quinton Lowe, I filmed a short entitled, ‘Twelve’, where I played a young girl confused about her own depression.
We began filming Tatted Souls in Dallas! The story centers around a college student, Sarah O’Neill, who learns how to accept herself in the face of adversity.
I continued filming Brunch and the short film, DEREK.
Along with the help of a talented cast and crew, I wrote/directed and acted in Fate.
I began training in martial arts and stunt work and started filming ‘Brunch’ — a short film directed by Stephen Bent.
I’m now represented by Neal Hamil Agency!
I booked a commercial for GSFS and filmed a supporting role in Baytown’s Finest (2016).
