Top Indie Film Awards
So honored to have won the Best Actress award at Top Indie Film Awards for my role as Kate Easton in Or So the Story Goes: Golden Rule!
Comic Con Girl
For anyone that knows me, it's no big secret that I'm a giant geek! I wear the title proudly. That being the case, you can imagine how excited I was to find the web series I created "Or So the Story Goes," would be going on an appearance tour with panels/screening and more at various Comic Cons across the East Coast & MidWest! With Tampa Bay, Chicago, Dover & CT under our belts, we are still looking forward to many to come, including Pittsburgh in a couple of weeks! Not only have we had a blast traveling, but we have made some fantastic contacts and gotten a chance to meet & create new fans in more places than we would have dreamed! Also... I get to geek out on almost a weekly basis- how cool is that?! Check out some of the photos from our trips and see if we are making an appearance near you by clicking here. We also made the top of the Buzzfeed list for geeky web series! Check it out here.
I'm pretty sure there's nothing more satisfying than sitting in a room full of the people that made a project possible and screening the project on a big screen! What a fun night!!! It couldn't have been more fantastic. :) Nothing like hard work paying off! Check out some photos below and more at our FB page here.
This weekend has been full of long work days, full of fun! I've been on the set of Strong Island Films pilot production for Discovery ID and am thrilled to be a part of the project! Not only have I gotten to meet some fantastic cast & crew members, but it has also given me the chance to go back to highschool for a day for many of the flashback scenes. Nothing like giggling and gossiping by your locker... I can't wait to share the episode with you soon!

I couldn't be MORE thrilled to have joined the main cast of the upcoming webseries, "The Watch". I'll be playing the role of Detective Clarissa Shaw. The series revolves around a serial killer that has targeted multiple students on a college campus. It's being directed by Daquan Saxton and written by Deon Frank. There are 14 episodes planned for the first season and I can't wait to see how the story unfolds!
We shot the pilot this past weekend- and I've never had more fun on set! What an incredibly talented cast and crew!! I honestly think this project is going to be something to watch out for (no pun intended)! I'll be sure to update as the project continues and am excited to continue shooting over the summer. Check out the link below for an article by the amazing cinematographer Melissa Murray! I've included a couple of the photos below.
