Breaking Out

Writing can be such a solitary job, but thankfully, the weather was perfect recently for a last minute shoot with my buddy Joe Gunawan. My brain needed a little decompressing.

Goodbye 2017. Hello, Today.

2018-01-02

This new year is a welcome change.  Last year showed a bit of progress, but was emotionally taxing.  This year got started on the right foot, and I take that as a sign.  I have been working on a pitch deck for my script, and will be pushing that forward with as much force as I can provide it.  I’ve booked a little part in a feature that shoots this Friday, and am looking wide-eyed into the year ahead.

Wherever you are, send me your good vibes, as they are needed and appreciated.  XO.

Filming has just wrapped on our indie thriller, 50K, directed by the amazing Marc Martinez, and produced by the awesome Patrick Thomas.  Here’s a Behind-The-Scenes shot as we rehearsed and blocked material.

I play one of the ensemble leads, Reiko.  I have been so blessed to have been offered the opportunity to be part of this experience.  It has been hands down one of the best of my life, and I look forward to more good times.

It Hurts So Good.

I just finished WRITING a feature film.  And I’m very proud of it, which I hesitate to say about many of the things in my life.  Not because I suck, but because I hold high standards.  In an industry where I being Female, Ethnic, and petite-  all things I have no power over- can often work against me, I will not let them lose sight of me that easily.  Whatever it takes, I’ll work for it, and if it means 4 or 5 o’clock nights… Fuck. Count me in.

This picture is of a reading with 6 actors (and Me) of my feature script.  It’s a dark comedy, that will make you laugh, make you feel like shit for about 5 minutes, and then make you feel awesome again.  But it’s like a “good shit” feeling… like it’ll hurt so good.

The Freezing Desert.

I think it’s funny how the desert is typically associated with the beating hot sun, and on this particular day it was f*king freezing.  Expect the unexpected.  The quiet ones roar the loudest.  I look effortlessly relaxed, but that took effort.

Choose BOLD.

I was in Nashville last week, having some spicy chicken at “Hattie B’s”, where the seating is hot and scarce.  As I scoped a group with napkins in their chicken baskets, I approached and asked if I could join them until they left and I scooped up their table.  One of the guys said to me “Fortune favors the bold!”  I took it to heart, and he doesn’t even know.  Bold.  BOLD.  BOLD.  New MO.

But not obnoxiously bold, because fuck obnoxious people.
