Wow, it has been a long time since I've update this blog section, but I have a lot of great things to share!
In the past year (and a half) I have been involved in SEVERAL projects and a few commercials. I'll start with the most recent and go backward and will include links to more info and finished products.
August 2017 - Most recently, this past week actually I filmed my SECOND National Commercial for KISQALI, a medication for women with breast cancer.
Here is a link to their website for more information.
I'm not sure when it will air, but I'm super excited and will post here when it does.
May 2017 - Got cast in and filmed the feature 'Maybe Shower' as Wendy
Description: Ash, Shannon, and Wendy are all late. You know... LATE. As their collective anxiety grows, they band together to face their fears, confront the potential fathers, and egg a car or two. All part of the world's first MAYBE SHOWER

Wingmates (Lucky Lad Productions)
I got to work on this with several friends from college and my boyfriend Tyler Mann, and it was a blast!
Also July 2016 - Filmed a short film called A Gift for Ma for AFS Film contest, Water, Texas (did Whiskey and a water for Water, Texas the previous year)
It is extremely cheesy, but its supposed to be. This cast and crew are amazing and some of my very good friends, including my boyfriend...again lol. We enjoy working together.
May 2016 - I mentioned this project in my previous post over a year ago. It officially became named 'Beyond the Night'.
It was the first official feature length VR film. It has its issues, but we were working with a fairly new media, so there were new types of problems we had to figure out on our own. It was a tiring and intense process, but I made great friends, learned how to work with VR 360 cameras, got to do a horror film and deal with blood and guns and zombies and technical issues. So while its not the most spectacular piece of film-making the experience sure was and I wouldn't change it for anything.
The Hideout Theatre (Improv)- I started taking classes here at the beginning of April and am currently on level 3.
I've been having so much fun in these classes. They are the highlight of my week and I strongly recommend this theatre.
In the Moment Acting (Meisner/Scene work)- The instructor, Laurel Vouvray, was taught directly by Sanford Meisner and is one of the highest recommended teachers in the Austin area. She requires an interview to even be accepted to take her class and has a waitlist. I waited for 3 months and joined her class at the beginning of June. She can be brutal, but she knows what she is doing and I'm stoked to learn from her. Again, I recommend her to anyone who want s to be a better actor and a stronger, more confident individual!
I've also had callbacks for an upcoming Rooster teeth feature leading role, Stella in a Streetcar Named Desire at Sam Bass Community theatre, etc.
I was cast in a webseries, shot the pilot and realized I wasn't a great fit so I, respectfully, stepped down from the role.
I was cast in series that is supposed to be on Amazon Prime, but they ran into some issues and it has been pushed back so I'm waiting to see what happens with that.
I've auditioned for more commercials and short films than I can even count in this past year.
All in all, I'm constantly auditioning and working to do what I love most. it is very hard sometimes and I've had countless moments when I feel like quitting, but I can't. I love acting and will keep fighting. To those who actually read through this very long post, thank you for your love and support.
