pros of an office job

So, guess what? I got an office job. And not as a sign of defeat with my acting career. But here’s the story: My husband’s office was without an administrative assistant for a week or two. As the staff is growing, and the office is preparing for a move, hiring someone new fell to the wayside. […]

25 for my 25th : progress

Admittedly, I have not crossed off as many things on this list as I would’ve liked to by now, but I do have some plans in motion. I have exactly three months left until my birthday. A little update on my 25 for 25th list: 1. Visit Portland, Oregon √ 3. Make my own sandwich bread […]

balance

I struggle with finding balance. To me, it’s usually an all or nothing thing. I either have to binge watch Netflix all day or cross off my to-dos like a maniac. I go from attending casting director workshops and submitting for projects and emailing industry contacts and reading Backstage articles to taking a step back and relaxing and […]

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about what makes me happy and actively adding more of those things into my life. I’m a serial list maker, so you bet I even made a list. Here are some things that never fail to add a little light into my day (sometimes literally), which is why I’m […]

a day in the life

Yesterday I decided to document a day in my life – a photo or several every hour. I did this for two reasons: 1) to have documentation of this point in my life and 2) I’m endlessly fascinated with people’s everyday routines, their daily life, and “behind the scenes”. My days do not have a […]

my favorite film photos from 2014

It has been a while since I used my film camera. In 2014, I shot almost exclusively with it, but when the holidays rolled around I picked my DSLR back up (since I would be taking so many more photos and having the digital files were much easier to share). It’s great to mix things up, and I’m glad […]

a change!

Last week I chopped my hair off! It was a big decision, but I needed a change for a variety of reasons (my hair hasn’t been short for almost 10 years). And with a hair change comes new headshots (welcome to an actor’s life!). I’m waiting to hear back from my representatives which headshots they […]

self love

I don’t know if this is news or not, but I’m a pretty very self-conscious person. Always have been. And self-consciousness and insecurity breeds shyness – something I’ve been affected by my whole life. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to get a little bit of a hold on it: forcing myself to speak up […]
