'Sound of Settling' - SAG, indie feature. I play the role of Abby, a girl with a really big heart and little self worth. She is no role model, but she eventually discovers that her big heart can be employed to love herself. We're finishing up some ADR and edits for the films release.
National McDonals Commercial! Go grab a Big Mac and fries on me! But not really... my usage ends soon and I am still a working actor so maybe just fires- on me!
'AWAKE and HAPPY'- This short film was shot over three nights, contrary to the title, I was neither fully awake nore happy. But kiddin aside, it is the best feeling to be working. The short ocvers the topic of physician assisted suicide. I play a woman that is suffering with terminal cancer, going through life's transition with her friends. It is a comedy of sorts.
I enjoy volunteer work at a women's shelter called The Harvest Home. After getting settled in LA and spending so much time focusing on myself and career, I noticed that giving back to my new community was something that was missing in my life.
