Independent Project at IU

As I’m approaching my last year (!!!) at Indiana University, I have the great fortune of being in the upcoming independent project of 2nd year M.F.A. playwright, Kaela Mei-Shing Garvin. The theatre department provides students with the opportunity to produce their own independent projects. I’m so grateful for Kaela’s artistry at IU, writing roles for women and people of color. Check out our witchy show Nov 9-11!

I Got Married!

The biggest project I've been working on was planning my nuptials. Both my husband and I found that a lot of the planning and aspects of the ceremony/reception were very similar to that of working on a show so we felt comfortable planning our own wedding. We got married this August in California and are now back in Indiana, looking forward to wrapping up our last school year here. Here's to many new adventures, shows and love! #CarJamWedding 8.8.18

University Show

With my focus on completing my undergrad in theatre during our stay in the Midwest, comes my involvement in my first ever college/university show. This December I will be acting in Indiana University (IU) Theatre's main stage production of The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui. We have already started rehearsals this month!

Indiana Theatre Debut

This fall, I will be in Bloomington Playwrights Project production of Beating A Dead Horse. This will be my first show at an Indiana theatre company, which means I'm making my Mid-West theatre debut!

New Representation

 

With the move to the Midwest, I finally got myself a commercial agent. I'm looking forward to being signed on with BMG Talent and their Chicago division. Check out the 'Contact' section of my website for booking inquiries.

I am so thrilled to be returning to the Bay Area, California this spring for Center REP's production of Sisters Matsumoto!

Becoming a Dual-Residency Actor

 

This August I will be re-locating to Indiana. This will mark an exciting shift in my career as I try to start working in theatre nationally, splitting my time between California and Indiana. Why move? Well, for love! My boyfriend got into grad school for directing at Indiana University and I will be joining him. During our time in Bloomington, I will audition for shows in the Mid-West area, as well as find a commercial agent and even finish getting my undergrad at IU. Here's to new adventures!

New Headshots!

 

As part of my Titan grant, a portion of that money has been allocated towards getting new headshots. I am so pleased with the preview headshots that Lisa Keating has sent over for me to review. Lisa is one of the leading headshot photographers not only in the Bay Area, but nationally as well. I highly recommend her!
