I got super lucky in January in terms of roles. I managed to worm my way into four short films, two as the lead, one bit part and one background. But apparently that wasn't enough for me, because I wanted to make a short film. If you've been around very long, you may remember SIV, … Continue reading A Secret Project
A Good Kind of Busy?
I was going to quit acting in November. Well, I was supposed to quit this time last year. If you remember, in 2017 I quit my job for unrelated reasons and decided that, while I was young and free of much responsibility, I would go after my dream of being an actress...for one year. After … Continue reading A Good Kind of Busy?
Last week Monday, I went to a theatre audition. I'll spare you the suspense—I didn't get it. But I ran into a few people I'd gotten to know since joining the industry, and one of them said to me, "I see you in, like, everything." This was surprising, and really nice for me to hear. … Continue reading For Now
Nearly Nine Years
When I approached the counter of the Starbucks I'm currently writing this from, the barista, Michelle, greeted me by name. This Starbucks is across the city from where I live, so this was slightly concerning. However, it's five minutes from Heritage Park where I've been going to rehearsal five times a week for the last … Continue reading Nearly Nine Years
Theatre or Film?
When people find out I'm an actor, often the first question they ask is "Film or theatre?"

But like many actors, I got my start in … Continue reading Theatre or Film?
Polo, Psycho, and Ghost Towns
Mornings here in Calgary have been gloomy these last few days. I've noticed this because my room at my mom's house hasn't got curtains yet and the sun shines directly in my face, waking me up on non-gloomy mornings. These gloomy ones, however, I'm able to sleep through. I managed to keep myself pretty busy … Continue reading Polo, Psycho, and Ghost Towns
In November last year, I was lucky enough to play Hanna in Snowshoe & Monster, a webseries pilot for Telus Storyhive. We had three days and $10K to make the best pilot we could. In February, the finished Snowshoe & Monster pilot came out and was one of two pilots chosen to make five more episodes … Continue reading Summer’s Monster
I got my first-ever acting agent not too long ago, which was a big deal in of itself. But then yesterday, I found out I had an audition, which I've got to admit was a bit stressful because not only was I preparing for my first professional acting audition which happened to be a kinda … Continue reading An Audition

2018 has been interesting in a good way. As with nearly every year, 2018 started with parties. Then there were a few days of chilling and getting organized in preparation for the upcoming year. On the fifth things started to kick back into gear when my production partner Ania and I finished the final version … Continue reading The Start
