Shot a commercial today for T-shirt brand Doc Shorty! It involved me doing lots of handstands and back walkovers in the streets of Chinatown and I can't wait to post the footage. Celine Held and Logan George of Elo Films were amazing - I couldn't have asked for better people to work with. Fun fact, 10% of Doc Shorty's profits are donated to multiple sclerosis research.

I had a wonderful time on Friday and Saturday shooting a commercial while eating Japanese beef curry and playing with Jack (an up and coming canine actor). Details to come at the end of February when the spot airs!



In other news, my new headshots and comp card shots are finally in and I love them! The unretouched versions are up on the homepage and gallery, so check 'em out!

Big news, my friends. After months of deliberating, I have decided to resign from my position as Associate Account Manager, K-12 at NBC Learn in order to, once and for all, focus on acting. Throughout my time at NBC Learn (and previously NBCUniversal Archives / NBC News Archives as Marketing Coordinator), I learned to design ads, write copy, reconcile finances, edit on Avid, clean up Salesforce, research the archives and oh so much more. 


This period of being a "normal person" has been incredibly informative and I recommend it to everyone. I've been able to rule out every other career I would possibly want and met some truly interesting human beings I never would have met otherwise.


Health insurance is great, but I'm going to be an actor now.
