Happy Halloween, Muffins! (Yes, my costume is Liz Lemon from 30 Rock. What the what? Nerds! Blerg. Hey dummies. I WANT TO GO TO THERE.)
Tomorrow, November 1st, marks my first full month in NYC. It has flown by! Since being here I've managed to snag a bunch of extra work on several TV shows. It's been great fun networking, being on set, and exploring the city. The rest of my time has been filled with researching representation, catching up with local friends, and auditioning. The hustle isn't super glamorous, but it is necessary, and it is paying off. In closing, have fun out there tonight. And eat all the candy! Lemon out.
As many of you know a LOT has happened since my last post in April. Following the closing of ...Forum with SMT I performed in a dance fundraiser at Emerald City Trapeze (which led to me updating my dance reel!). Then in June I played Helena in the new musical "Midsummer Night's Fantasy," at the beautiful Broadway Performance Hall in Capitol Hill. In July I acted for the first time in the 48 Hour Film Project, and the next week I laid down a ton of audition footage with my talented videographer friend John Ulman (one of which can be seen here), and my last artistic venture before leaving Seattle was a sweet, body-positive photo shoot with Mark Laubenheimer (and later I wrote this accompanying essay ICYMI.)
I then got in my little Prius on August 31st and drove off into the sunset. It was the beginning of my cross country adventure! Two weeks - and many experiences later - I was in MA, where I spent two more weeks packing and cleaning and organizing and seeing family. Which brings us all the way to October, where I am now a proud resident of Brooklyn, NY. In fact, I celebrated my one-weekiversary yesterday! I even managed to book my first gig; some background work on the new 1970s pilot The Deuce. I film October 16th, so I'll keep you posted about when it's airing. Cheers to life!
