So grateful to get to continue to make these awesome videos! Believe it or not, we shot this AND Invisible on the same day, so everyone pulled major double duty, ESPECIALLY Anna! Thank you to everyone involved, and here’s to continuing to create with friends! More to come, soon 🤫
Having absolutely zero fun.
(And yes, I was FUCKING FREEZING in that first photo. The space cadet jacket went right back on, believe me.)

“There is a wide, yawning black infinity. In every direction, the extension is endless; the sensation of depth is overwhelming. And the darkness is immortal. Where light exists, it is pure, blazing, fierce; but light exists almost nowhere, and the blackness itself is also pure and blazing and fierce.”
- Carl Sagan
What a wonderful feeling, to sit in silent awe of something I’ve wanted to see all my life, to feel so infinitesimally small and yet simultaneously so grateful for the fact I am a microscopically tiny witness to this universe at all.
It seems so improbable sometimes, this life. Of all the possibilities, of all the billions of tiny happenings that had to go just so for me to exist, for me to BE at all, and then on top of that to get to be HERE, tonight, beneath a glowing emerald sky...
Whatever the future holds for me, I’ll forever be dumbfounded by the 29 years I’ve gotten to walk in my shoes so far. They have already been on so many shores, walked side by side with truly incredible people, and stood in awe of a world they’ll never fully grasp. I can likely never be grateful enough for this life... but I will damn well continue to try by living it as fully as I can!

Family, chosen or otherwise, is always worth celebrating ♥️ Happy belated turkey day folks!
Second awesome announcement of the day:
The first in a series of videos I directed for @annaclendening is out! Anna, you’ve become a friend I can’t imagine my life without, and I can’t wait to keep telling fun, beautiful, hard stories with you! For this video, I got to reteam with the always incredible @goldenwingedwoodpecker (duh) and @nachoneary, my amazing DP @rasa.partin, my badass wardrobe @therockyd, and a slew of other wonderful friends like our handsomely absent leading man, the bees knees, @carterjenkins!
The other ‘invisibles’ are all people with a special place in my heart: @kevinfonteyne, @lilykershaw, @nicmercado and @heretosaveyouall ♥️
More soooooon!
(Url, not videogame character)
It’s a day full of announcements 😬
(And well placed ads, apparently)
Thanks to every single person who helped make this happen:
To the courageous badasses at @gunpowder_sky for taking this on, to my incredible cast and crew for making something special with me, to my amazing team for being the second people who believed I could, to my mom for being the first, to all my splendiferous friends who showed up and took part, and a special thanks to my wonderful producing other half, @goldenwingedwoodpecker!
This is just the beginning. But what a fun, leatherbound beginning it is!

Angel, Buffy and Spike are here to wish you a very moody 90s Halloween.

#Shrimp has finally arrived (LINK IN BIO)!
So happy to finally put this little latex wrapped gift out into the world, to introduce others to a community I’ve come to deeply respect, understand and love in the time since I was allowed to document it with open arms. Shrimp, to me, is at its core an ode to mutual respect and consent, whether that’s in the relationships of the women who work in it or the clients they cater to, or in the way they interact with the outside world. It’s a show about women who respect themselves and demand respect from others, even in a job that the world may not understand. And it’s a show about women looking out for each other. 
I hope I get to make more of this. Maybe one day. But for now, I’m so proud of everything I got to make with friends I still get to cherish every day.
Thank you. To each and every one of you. You know who you are. And if you don’t, I’ll remind you often.
Song: Violent Dream by The Jezabels
Tired of having society try to tell me I can’t be both a tomboy and fond of heels and cocktail dresses, that I can’t be an ass kicking boss in one breath and a gentle empath the next. I don’t know a single person in my life who slips perfectly into an easily labeled compartment, a box with four simple, flat sides and a tightly fitted lid. We need to stop minimizing the complexity of others for our own comfort when we can rarely even understand or grasp our own for very long. It’s no one else’s job to make themselves simpler or more easily digestible for you, just as it’s not yours to do so for them, so ascribe to as many labels (or as few) as you like, and screw anyone who thinks they ‘can’t’ exist simultaneously!

So @meghanmerkus drew Princess MEnonoke and I’m SO GODDAMN IN LOVE WITH IT 😭
As I get older, I find myself having fewer and fewer firsts, but last night was a particularly special one: it was the first time I’ve ever gotten to premiere something I created from scratch, and it was in a goddamn FESTIVAL! 😍 #SHRIMP made its debut at @tribeca TV fest last night, and having written it, directed it and acted in it, I couldn’t be prouder (or more confused by the fact it’s finally going to be out there, and WHAT IS LIFE)! Thank you to all the friends and family who came to support, and to these fantastic ladies for coming on this crazy adventure with me (@francesfisher, you were so missed!).
I’m so incredibly proud of and grateful for this project and everyone involved in it. And thanks for letting my juicy booty sit in alllllll the chairs 👏🏼
