I’m so looking forward to being on set later this week in the short film, Pointing Fingers. It’s a dramatic morality tale about grey areas and tough circumstances. I play a supernatural professional, whose job just happens to be judging and ushering people into the afterlife. No pressure there, right!? LOL. Follow me on Instagram and check out my stories to peek behind the scenes!
I had the pleasure of playing a high and mighty, highly ridiculous mom in the new digital series Maternity Leave. Created by Angel Laketa Moore (That Chick Angel TV), it’s a hilarious look at a new mom trying to get back into her acting career. (Yeah. I can relate.) In episode 2, I play one of the over-the-top mothers in her lactation support group, The Milky Moms. Check it out!
Make sure you don’t miss the bonus material from the episode as well, where all of us Milky Moms got to improvise. Watch the crazy come out! Look, if you leave the camera on me long enough, I’m gonna start singing!
I’m currently being interviewed by a blog about strong women (more on that later!) and was asked how I found myself wearing so many hats (actor, writer, singer, sometimes director and producer). Aside from my creative family upbringing, upon moving to LA I discovered that everyone here was making things! I had ideas… and I had inspirational go-getters to shadow. So I dove in!
I’ve been looking at the amazing and amazingly large catalog from my sketch group onewordnocaps. We’re a bunch of actor/writer/director/producers who are constantly stretching our creative muscles and wearing multiple hats to make it all happen. Check out a few of my favorites (so far) that I’ve been involved in!
I was very excited when WhoHaHa decided to feature a sketch I wrote and starred in for my sketch group onewordnocaps. Not familiar with WhoHaHa? “Cofounded by Elizabeth Banks, WhoHaha is a digital platform whose goal is to shine a spotlight on funny women.” I’m so glad WhoHaHa exists and so proud to be included!
Easter fell on April Fool’s Day this year and the moms in this sketch took the opportunity to celebrate in that spirit. Check it out if you haven’t seen it and keep your eyes peeled for the littlest actor making her cameo, my 2 year old daughter.
I’ve updated my headshots for the new year. You can see them throughout the site and in the gallery. (Theatrical shots taken by Dana Patrick. Commercial and comedy shots are by Karin Schneider.) Happy 2018!
This Wednesday October 18th at 7:30/8:30c, I’m back again on ABC’s Speechless as the English Teacher who is… um, not so good at her job. I’m excited and grateful to be recurring on this sweet, poignant and funny show.
For this episode, I had to do some physical comedy, a minor stunt, and learn a new skill! I can’t wait to see how it all turns out in the edit.
Check it out! And thank you for your continuing support!
I’m thrilled to be joining the cast of ABC’s hit show Speechless (starring Minnie Driver) in a recurring role. It’s an amazing group of people to work with and really great writing. What more could a girl ask for?!
I’ll share an air date once I have it, but in the meantime, if you missed my first appearance last season (or just want a quick chuckle), check out the video below!
Save the date! Catch me April 5th as an inept English Teacher on Speechless on ABC! I had a fantastic time on set and am so excited to see how it turns out. If you haven’t seen it, its a very funny and sweet show about a family with a special needs son. Please check it out!
