Happy Almost-2016!What an incredible year it’s been. I’ve learned a lot about myself as an actor and person and I feel… really freakin’ proud of all this growth! Thank you for your support this year- in person, on the phone, online- it makes my heart happy to feel your encouragement and energy 🙂 Get ready to *squee* in glee with me because I’ll be able to announce my next project… SOON.

Have a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year <3

2015: My Top 5 “Firsts”

First SAG-AFTRA Card

In January it finally happened: I booked a job that pushed me from “eligible” to “must join.” Now I have this shiny, new SAG-AFTRA member card, and all the union protections that come with it. WHEE!

First Network Pilot Test

Pilot season. When new TV shows are cast and actors like me vie for series regular roles. Well, in March, I made it to the final round of casting for a CBS pilot! My Bloc NYC Super Agent Man (aka the inimitable Jim Daly) and I were stoked. MILESTONE!

First Scene with an Actor Idol

One of my actor-crushes is Kathryn Hahn. She’s just FREAKISHLY TALENTED and I love everything she does. It was REALLY hard not to go full on fangirl when I worked with her on Showtime’s Happyish. But I’m a professional. And PS: she’s awesome.

First Fringe Festival

The NY Fringe Festival has been on my actor bucket list since college. When I read the script for Jacob Marx Rice’s dark comedy Coping, I felt a strong pull to be a part of it. Lucky for me- it premiered at the Fringe! Working on this show was…emotionally challenging. Also I loved every minute. Especially the infamous snot scene with the brilliant Scott Thomas. Audiences must have loved it too because we got extended. TWICE!

First Marathon

I know it’s not actor-news, but I’m SUPER proud of this one: on November 1, after 18 weeks of training (and spending last year trying to qualify), I ran the TCS New York City Marathon. 26.2 miles through the streets of my city. This pic (taken by my friend Jill Sapenoff!) is from the halfway mark. Trust me- I was smiling like a maniac the rest of the race too! I could talk about it for hours but to sum up: it was one of the best days of my life 🙂
