Happy holidays to all! After finishing understudying the run of "Chapter Two" at Windy City Playhouse (including a fantastic understudy performance), I am excited to start "Der Rosenkavalier" at the Lyric Opera in the New Year!
Best wishes to all for health and happiness in 2016!
I spent last Friday on set with an amazing crew from DePaul for the MFA short film "There Is No Door". From writer/director Ward Crockett, "There Is No Door" explores themes of depression, suicide, and family secrets through the eyes of Sam. I play Sam as an adult, bringing her daughter to her childhood home for the first time in many years. I got to work with the adorable Sabrina Smith, who played my young daughter Hannah. Thanks to Ward, producer Amy Baker, DP Eric Liberacki, 1st AD Danny Farber, and especially Stedy Cam Op Blaine Baker who expertly chased me up a flight of stairs many times that day!
I am so excited that my McDonald's spot is finally out! What a fun shoot, thanks to Fahlgren Mortine, Mills James Productions, Simon Casting, and Gray Talent Group!

Just got back from a 2-day trip out of town to shoot a commercial - can't wait to share more news when I am able, will definitely be posting the spot here! Got to meet and work with a great Chicago comedian Matty Ryan in another wonderful Midwest city ;-) We had a 6 hour break before our flight home, so we saw the new "Mission Impossible" film. I particularly loved the powerhouse Rebecca Ferguson - and it was pretty awesome to see Tom Cruise doing all of his own stunts!
Thanks always to Gray Talent Group, and Claire Simon Casting for all your hard work!
Congrats to cast and crew of "Moviestar*" on our 8 nominations and 3 wins at the Tenerife International Film Festival!

The final edit for "In Broad Daylight", an MFA thesis project for DePaul, came out! Thanks to director James Sharpe and my co-star Cole Doman. Had a great time filming in downtown Chicago, admist the rain and random pedestrians - always an adventure! Check out the finished short film here:
Excited for some new classes I'm taking at iO Chicago. I started On Camera Comedy Intensive with Marisa Ross last week, and will be starting Level 1 of the Improv training program next week with Nnamdi Ngwe. After seeing "Undressed" at the Mission Theater at iO last week, I am even more excited to start training at iO!
