I’m not dead, I swear.

WOW it’s been awhile since I updated the blog. I’m sorry readers, let me bring you up to speed on what I’ve been doing.

In May, I was a part of the successful New Visions festival. My Mentor, Susie McKenna was a really treat to work with and helped me navigate the waters of producer/ director as I made my directorial debut! You can check out an article about the festival here.

After the event was over, a bid adieu to my new family and friends in london, and headed back to texas where I…… *drumroll*….GRADUATED!

BAM, Look at that gorgeous grad.

After graduation, my younger sister Emma had an invasive surgery on her ankle, which for many wouldn’t mean much other than a few weeks off their feet, but Emma is a dancer. She was off her feet for over 2 months, which just about killed her. I stayed home in Texas for the summer to help with her recovery and help my other sister Zoe prepare for her first year at the Texas Academy of Bio-medical Sciences, also known as TABS. Yeah, my sisters are both pretty talented, and it’s been amazing to help and watch them grow!

After a week vacation that included a road trip to Austin Texas, Ghost Ranch in Abiququ, NM and ending with a viewing of TEXAS THE MUSICAL in the panhandle, I returned to the family home to finish packing up my life and moving to NEW YORK CITY!

This is my entire life in one car. Literally NO LOOKING BACK.

After 3 days in the car that felt like 3 months, we rolled into Bed-Stuy (Stuy? Stuey? Sty? I’ll figure it out eventually) and I moved into my new apartment 1 day after viewing the first apartment I found (I may or may not have been desperate). It’s in a really sweet area with tons of stuff around and a tube subway stop nearby.

SO WHAT NOW?

Now, I am close to closing the deal on a few day jobs. Most likely Chipotle and being a tour guide at Madison Square Park. I am also in talks about doing a design gig for an indie film.

Other than that, I’m stuck in a vicious cycle. I wake up, look for jobs, find perfect theatre producer-ey jobs that are just outside my reach because I either have too much experience for an entry level job or I don’t have enough experience for a more advanced job.

THERE IS NO WINNING.

Rinse, Repeat.

But yeah, if anyone is interested in hiring a perfectly funny, sweet, hardworking artist who wants to produce/direct, YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND ME! Until then, I’ll be here, living that broke artist life. I’ll get back to writing reviews of films soon as well, I promise.

I'll also be counting down the days until I get a real mattress. That's a huge semi comfortable, but actually uncomfortable air mattress.
