At the end of March, I had the good fortune to book a supporting role in the short film 'A Dry September,' based on the William Faulkner short story of the same name. I played the battered wife of the main character, whose appearance at the end of the film provides a moral twist in this 1930s race drama set in Mississippi. The main character, McLendon, was played by James Franco, and we shot our scene together in the wee hours of the morning up at Big Sky Movie Ranch in Simi Valley. It was a great experience, especially working with the director, Arkesh Ajay, and with the wonderful crew.
I was so lucky to work with an amazing cast and crew this summer including Heather Graham and Pedro Gomez Millan on the hilarious comedy "Half Magic." And for the first time ever, I was a blonde. Why, you ask? Well, I was playing the actress who was playing Heather's character in the movie within the movie that Heather herself was directing. Is that meta enough for you?
I'm very proud to have been a part of this digital series. Made with lots of love by Rebecca West, Cameron Oro, and Jason Beaubien (with the help of many others). In this series, I play a misunderstood ex-girlfriend...with perhaps not the greatest set of morals.
I'm really excited to be partnered with Kate and Kris at Synergy Talent. Looking forward to lots of commercial auditions and bookings!
On April 4th, I performed in "To Whom It May Concern," a live monthly show produced by the hilarious Jayne Entwistle where folks read their letters on stage: real letters they’ve written, letters they’ve received, improvised letters based on audience suggestions and letters we wish we could write.
I read a letter I wrote to a fellow driver who taught me a thing or two about road rage.
Too bad I don't have his address.

Equal Pay Day marks the point in the year that it would take a women, in a similar job to a man, to make the same amount of money that he does. I produced and directed a PSA to raise awareness of the wage gap.
We approached the issue with a good sense of humor and imagined a future where women and men are paid equally, but mindsets still haven't changed. Uh oh.
The PSA also stars Cameron J. Oro, Heather Gordon, Jason Beaubien, Faith Imafidon, and Megan Brotherton, all fantastic actors and all fellow ART/Harvard graduates!
