I'm excited to share that I'm now writing and performing on the house sketch comedy team at Sacramento Comedy Spot, Secret Handshake Society! Love that I get to create original content with some seriously funny like-minded people. Check out my performer page too!

Fun Fact: The Sacramento Comedy Spot is the largest comedy school in Northern California. Owner, Brian Crall, tells all about it in this YouTube video. (Yes, I'm in there somewhere too.)
Yay! Another New Year's resolution checked off the list. Thanks to the talented team at Studio 24, I have a new voiceover demo. Check it out!
On-camera work is great. Direct book work is extra great. Direct book work with a pal?! Well, that's just extra super great! Had the chance to do just that last week in Mill Valley with my pal (and talented artist), Kyle Lawson. Here's a peak behind the scenes.
I don't mean to brag, but our picnic skills are on point. Excuse me now while I update my resume. Haha!
Dude, it's out! This is definitely written and shot like a sit-com, a dream job of mine. So thankful to have been cast on this wild ride.
It's a four video series. Check 'em out on Aruba Networks' YouTube Channel.
LinkedIn has a new video series on making your profile stand out. Thankfully, they don't take themselves too seriously. ;)
Lucky me to have landed roles for two comedic projects lately! Final media is coming soon. Until then, I can share this sneak peak from behind the scenes of my latest on-camera booking. This girl thinks it's going to be a like, totally radical week.
I like plans. I relish New Year's Resolutions. I always set a few primary goals to keep my focus in the acting world. Quite honestly, it keeps my sanity. I mean, with most of the industry being out of my control, I'm thankful for a couple crumbs of my own.
This year, long form improvisation was one of my big metaphorical crumbs. I've always had fun with improv and certainly used it to fill a void on stage or in an audition, but long form is definitely a beast of it's own! It's the dichotomy of comedy; if it had a sign, it would be a Gemini. (That's why we get along so well I think. We Gemini kids have to stick together!) Here's what I mean:
See what I mean?! I'm loving it though. It gets me out of my head (where I tend to get stuck) and there's a satisfaction in the doing, even if it means bombing now and then.
Improv Cage Match Team "Midnight Munchies"
We took this photo right before an Improv Cage Match show at Sacramento Comedy Spot. Sadly, we didn't move on to the next round that night, but I did get to be a dust bunny for a few moments so I'd say it's about even where winning is concerned.
Possibly the best part of all this is that it has made a really big difference in my audition performances for quirky characters. I just booked another in July!! More on that later...
Have you studied improv? I'd love to hear about it. I'm looking to make some plans for 2016!
Flipping, tossing and twirling. So much fun with the hair on this one! Love that the two co-founders of this product launch are women striving to create a product with fewer chemicals and lots of natural goodness for healthy hair.
Working on comedic scenes is my absolute favorite. So thankful I was booked on this funny industrial produced by Project Film & TV. Great people involved all around.
