The Dream of the Burning Boy

March 10, 2018

Our Winter main stage production sold so well that we had to extend another weekend! Check out Normal Ave's website, Instagram, or Facebook for press photos and other fun updates. I was the costume designer, one of two props masters, and a producer of the piece. Working on the other side of the table with Normal Ave has been one of the biggest blessings of my career. I've had to wear many different hats which has been intimidating in the best way possible. Looking forward to all the other theatrical adventures to come with my family Normal Ave!

Two Feature Films

June 03, 2017

I had the pleasure of working on two indie feature films this June! One was a modern day (classical text) version of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. I played Calpurnia. However, set in a frat house, she was more of the drunk-partygirl-comedic relief of this adaptation than the concerned wife of the soon to be fallen leader. The team, Writer in the Dark Productions, is incredibly talented and I can't wait for everyone to see it! Then, I also played a small role in the feature, "No More Lonely People", written & directed by OJ Reyes, who offered me the role of Clara after seeing my reel. It's a futuristic love story that is sure to break your heart. Release dates coming soon!
