Had a great time bringing Wilderness to the Penn State campus. Wonderful engagement with faculty, students, staff and community around issues of mental health and addiction. Next stop University of Illinois!

Successful Week teaching at NYU Grad Acting

I spent a week at NYU’s Graduate Acting Program helping to inaugurate their new Film/TV initiative with my Screen Acting Intensive Had a great time with the second year students discussing film acting, analyzing clips from a variety of filmed content, learning how to identify camera angles, and, most importantly, trying our hand at all sorts of filmed scenes. Our amazing camera crew-Yossera and Federico- shot the students’ scenes all over the 5th Floor of NYU Tisch! The last day was spent watching the work and discussing. Great fun. img_0172

Stacy Cochran’s A+

I shot Stacy Cochran’s newest film A+ this summer with my husband Damian Young. Damian and I play a warring couple at the very end of the film. Great fun shooting and great to reconnect with Stacy who I worked with years ago on her film Drop Back Ten.

Wilderness Workshop in Florida

Just finished a workshop of Wilderness at University of Florida. This play has been in development for over a year by producer Anne Hamburger (artistic director of En Garde Arts) and director Seth Bockley. Wilderness is a multi-media documentary theatre piece weaving video interviews alongside verbatim text, original material, movement, live music, and a strong sound and visual design. This has been a very rewarding developmental process and I am very excited to bring the work to New York city in the fall at the Abrons Arts Center, and to colleges and universities in 2017.
