sundance / music video / peggy lee (november update)

Happy November! This year has just flown. Here are some exciting bits of news:

1.) SUNDANCE

In 2017, I appeared as a principal dayplayer in Adam, a feature film about an awkward teen who gets catapulted into NYC’s gay and trans activist scene. The feature will now be premiering at Sundance Film Festival! (This is particularly exciting because this was my first principal film credit ever, and I’m so excited to see this project do so well!)

2.) MUSIC VIDEO

And if you’ve known me since 2017, you’ve seen my pop/EDM cover of Mama Who Bore Me from Spring Awakening. This year, with the help of Jeff Daye and Lloyd Kikoler (because who else?), I’m releasing another pop/EDM cover of a showtune (it’s a surprise!), with a video directed by Bobby Godas, shot by Luke Norton, choreographed by Gene Biscontini and featuring Danny Marin and eight fierce AF dancers. My excitement for this project is honestly unparalleled. 

3.) AN EVENING WITH PEGGY LEE @ Green Room 42

I’ll be singing in a Peggy Lee tribute concert on December 15th at The Green Room 42 alongside Tony-Nominee Alison Fraser and Grammy winner Tim Young. I am thrilled to be working on a project so out of my comfort zone—thanks Blake Allen! (If you don’t know her, Peggy Lee was an actress and jazz singer most prolific in the 40’s and 50’s. She even covered the 1921 song “Ain’t We Got Fun” on her 1959 album, which my Great Grandma Pearl used to sing to me all the time.) 


I have a few more (writing, acting, singing, video!) projects coming down the pipeline soon that I don’t want to jinx—but wow, this year (in general) has been so creatively fulfilling, and I can’t believe it’s coming to a close in less than a month.

Oh hey internet!

Here’s the new section of my website where I tell you all about what I’m currently up to—and in the interest of catching you up to speed, here’s a play-by-play of 2018’s highlights so far: 

This year has been nothin’ but new adventures. After taking the last few months of 2017 to completely re-brand (new headshots, new website, new videos, new materials, new goals!), I signed with GREGG BAKER MANAGEMENT within the first few weeks of the new year. Gregg is fabulous and we have been working together ever since. I love having this man on my team. 

In April, I became SAG-AFTRA-eligible and snagged my first on-camera principal credit from a new feature film called ADAM, directed by Rhys Ernst (Transparent). Since then, I played a leading role in a comedy short, AUDITION ANTICS, produced by the NYC Indie Film Collective and Kisha Peart. I’m beginning to like this on-camera stuff! 

I’ve also been doing plenty of studio vocals this year—in addition to singing on 3 different new musical demos for two different composers, I’ve also created two different video content clips for Instagram and Facebook (with the help of Lloyd Kikoler). Together, the videos have upwards of 7,000 views! [Stay on the lookout for an actual music video, coming this fall. I’m so stoked for this one—this project has been in the works for a while.]

Aaaand, I got to sing in Riley Thomas’ NYMF concert, Defy Your Expectations. Riley’s music is incredible, and I was beyond honored to be a part of the festival.

The hustle has been real this year—between public and private readings of new works, concerts at The Green Room 42, self-tapes, auditions, class, and everything in between, I’m feelin’ extremely fulfilled. And I’ve got a few projects coming up on the pipeline that I can’t wait to share. 

Keep chuggin’.
