Music came in this week for the film I’ve been quietly working on. Music is soooooo important, and as I put the scenes and the music together, I’ve been overwhelmed with a feeling of honor and gratitude that I could have such amazingly talented friends who could take the emotions that I wrote out on paper and transform them into music that so perfectly represents my intentions. I am walking on clouds, swimming in a sea of love, and dancing on in a field of blessing. It’s been such a long road for this passion project, but I couldn’t beg for anything more than what it has become.
I had the honor of Auditioning for the now infamous viral video “First Kiss.” I guess my audition didn’t go as well as they expected. Check it out, on the YouTube page for Yes Please! Comedy. It was a fun project to be a part of, and I definitely enjoyed making it!
I’ve got some new work up! I co-wrote and shot this comedy short with my good friend Lawrence Kao and it was an amazing time. When Sam’s friend, Kelly, tells her that Andre is about to die, Sam has to decide whether she will be true to herself, or let a good friend die lonely. Hilariously funny, I hope you enjoy!

Shooting Day 1 was a success for a new project I’ve been working on!! It was a long and glorious night, and I felt so inspired and alive on that set. Can’t wait for more on this project. Amazing cast and crew to work with! This behind-the-scenes shot was taken by William Wang Photography, you can see more of his work @ www.wiwafoto.com.
This industry is definitely a journey, and a lonely one at that. It’s very difficult to find people with the passion to match my own. I’m definitely choosing my allies carefully and so far, it seems that I am taking good steps forward. I have a ton of ideas tucked up my sleeve, and I’m almost ready to pull them out and blow your mind. Plans are being made. This is going to be so much fun. Who’s with me?!
I’ve been keeping busy as of late with work, practice and studying. Progress comes with practice and perseverance. Went to class at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade theater for Improv training tonight. Walking out of class having learned something is refreshing, kind of like iced fruit punch on a summer day. Life is good.
Moral of the story: If you don’t know what you’re doing, improvise. 🙂
I know my updates have been scarce this month, but there has definitely been a reason. I wouldn’t present you with anything less than my best, hence I’ve been working really hard on putting together a quality reel. With a good bit of help, I’ve finally put together a set that I’m proud of. Looking forward to making this bad-boy even badder.
