all of my heart: inn love

A waitress again! Haha! Aaaaaand for those of you paying close attention, YES that’s the same vest I wore as a waitress in The Romeo Section. And for those of you who frequent Black+Blue, YES that’s the vest I wear as a part of my uniform when I’m researching my waitress roles (aka working to […]

supergirl

Another opportunity to play on a CW show this year! This time I’ve moved from Cop to Alien Paramedic. Best part? My lovely friend Patrick Rinehart played my teammate! The two of us had a great time on set for the day. The scene is intensely dramatic and they actually used 4 different cameras to shoot! […]

white spot: nat’s triple diners

Now this is a first! For this fun White Spot campaign, they gave me a mic, a camera man and sent me out on the streets to chat with real people! NO SCRIPT! Of course, I didn’t come up with everything on my own, the awesome team gave me helpful suggestions on what to talk […]

betting on the bride

Yay! My first ever Lifetime movie is here! I was so stoked to get the opportunity to dive into the world of Movies of the Week. After several commercial and episodic tv shoots, switching gears to the MOW format was a really great learning experience. Director Martia Grabiak lead a wonderfully efficient and creative set, […]

london drugs: back to school

  I was so stoked to get a chance to work on this new ad for London Drugs. Not only did I have a great time, but I got to meet Kallie Hu and Amy Lopes! Two awesome local actresses who I’m so pumped to have in my community. Check out some shots from the […]

new ventures

Who would’ve guessed in less then two years, I’d go from zero acting jobs to offering a commercial acting workshop? You gotta love how life works. The idea of offering a workshop is exciting and nerve racking all at the same time. I know I’ve got a lot to share with new actors who are […]

reinstating proactivity

It’s time to get back to basics. I’ve gotten comfortable and maybe even a bit complacent. While the progression of my career feels great, the way I approach my daily life has fallen back into some old habits. I’ve become reactive instead of proactive. Step 1: Forgive myself. It makes sense that after several months […]
