All of my leggings are at least 5 years old and have holes in them. Thank you @glitteractive for sending me some awesome new ones, along with a super soft & comfy sparkly top to go with them!

Another still from a short I did recently. Had a lot of fun working on this one. Eric (@hucklebear__e) gave a beautiful heartfelt performance as my brother. Our director, Sibi (@sibi.naayagam) is incredibly talented and I can’t wait to see where his career takes him! 🎬

It’s been a crazy couple of days but here is a photo of me from 2 months ago taken by my sister when we were hanging out at Runyon Canton 🤗

So excited to be able to share the first image from a shoot I did in Zurich, Switzerland. So much time, effort, and love went into this shoot. We decided to do a futuristic look and my team really knocked it out of the park! I am now officially available for any and all cyborg roles 😅🤖🎬

10 years ago I was sitting in my acting class at @strasberginstituteny in New York City when I saw I had a voicemail from a number I didn’t recognize. I went outside on my break to check who it was, and found out I had booked my first real acting job. I still remember that exact feeling. I started shaking and crying, and could barely say thank you to the casting director. I didn’t have an agent at the time, and had gone through two rounds of auditions after finding a casting call online. This was huge for me. I had a couple hundred dollars in my bank account, I was waitressing 40 hours a week, while in drama school, and working as an extra on any free days I had just to try to get my foot in the door. In any door. A week later I was flying first class to Mexico to shoot this commercial for Sony Ericsson. Thanks to @paladinocasting and our director, @fredclapp for opening that first door for me. Swipe ➡️ to see some fun behind the scenes photos from that weekend!
(but I did have a double for ONE shot in the commercial - who can guess where 😅👀)
New year, new headshots! I’ve been back in the country for 10 days, and I’ve had 11 auditions. I don’t talk about the day to day hustle of the business too much, mostly because I don’t want to bore you guys, but I want to inspire even just one person to live their dreams. If I had let all the “Nos” get to my head, I wouldn’t have worked on a single movie in my life. Being an actor seemed like an impossible thing and was the farthest thing from reality in my life. Once I made the decision to be an actress, it took 4 years to book my first speaking role in a real feature film and another 2 years to book my first co-starring role on a TV show. But a lot of people don’t realize that when you’re starting out, it’s a struggle to even get auditions. It took YEARS to get to a place of getting auditions consistently. I’m excited and thankful for the opportunities I am getting these days and I can’t wait to see what’s in store. Keep going no matter how hard it seems, and don’t put a time limit on it! ♥️💪🏻
