Good morning! I’m writing to you from New York City where I’ll be staying for the next few days before flying off to London. Since I’m on a bit of a whirlwind trip for the next few weeks (and then back to school, ugh), posts will be pretty infrequent. I also just realized my SD card does not work with the laptop I brought, so any photos will be from my phone. Meaning I’ll (hopefully) have a ton of photos to post once I get back home! Meanwhile, hello low quality selfies…oh the struggle.
Anyway, I got to the city yesterday afternoon. It’s my first time traveling by myself so I was a little out of my element, but everything went fairly smoothly. Yesterday was mostly devoted to traveling but I also got to see Drunk Shakespeare! If you want spoilers just google the show but it is basically what the name suggests. Our drunk actor for the night played Macbeth and it was hilarious! Damn do I love theatre. Today is pretty low key. Going to the Met this afternoon to meet up with some friends. The rest of the week is mainly seeing shows and performing in a Senior Showcase with fellow MT majors. Wish me luck!
Hope 2015 is off to a smashing start for everyone!
I mention my major fairly often but as a reminder I’m studying Musical Theatre, International Business, and Dance at university. My dream is to be a performer. I’m not too picky on whether that means stage or screen, straight plays or musicals, theme parks or dancing. Really I’d like to do it all, but as long as I can make a living performing I will be thrilled. I’ve been pretty lucky so far and hopefully that luck continues through 2015 and beyond!
To give you an idea of some of the stuff I work on, here’s a student film I was part of this semester. I’m still pretty new to film and I have a lot to learn but it was an awesome script to work on with an equally awesome cast and crew!

In 2014 I fell in love with 8tracks. For those of you not familiar, 8tracks is similar to Pandora, Grooveshark, or Spotify where you stream music and can listen to or create playlists. Well, I finally tried my hand at creating a playlist! Below is said playlist and a few recommendations. Enjoy!
Playlists I’ve had on repeat:
