Anchors Away–First of Many Posts…

I had a *GREAT* shoot this weekend on a project that my genius friend Gia Mora & I have been working on for about a year. We, somehow, persuaded about 40 of our most talented friends and colleagues to come to shoot it and I’m still asking myself…WTH. I’m in awe of the generosity, love, and kick-ass spirit that was stirred up this weekend.

I most definitely hope to sell this show and not disappoint the lovely people that for some reason or another, believed in us enough to help us out. They are amazeballs. And I promise to stop using that term right after this.

Trump Supporters on CONAN!

Well, after the very weird and terrifying Wednesday after the election, I was fortunate enough to get called by the Conan people to come do a HILARIOUS sketch. I think we could all use a little levity, and hopefully begin to start laughing again.

Enjoy! And thanks for the support!

Also cool to be on the homepage again!

CONAN Sketches are here!

A couple of the Conan O’Brien sketches I did are up and at ’em! I love, love, love working on that show for the obvious reasons (see: impending fame) but also, the crew and everyone who works there is so great. They have the best jobs ever! Anyhow, hope you enjoy some of my very finest acting work…very, very finest.



And on the homepage!

I’m excited to be performing in the July round of the Sunday Sketch Show at iO West! They throw about 10 strangers together every week, give us a couple days to memorize sketches, three hours to rehearse them, and then voila! Magical! Or something like that.

The best part…tickets are FREE! Use that money to get boozy before the show!

I’ve been so very fortunate to work on CONAN a few times in the last month! (No, we aren’t related…that you know of.) What a fun show to work on with a really welcoming and great crew. Have any of the sketches I’ve been in aired yet? Well, no, but who’s counting? I still got to sing backup dressed as a monkey. It’s what all my years in drama school prepped me for!!

Writing Podcasts…

Hi friends,

I find it impossible to believe that it’s late March, but, Cadbury Creme Eggs are everywhere, so my waistline’s demise is much closer. Thanks, Easter bunny. At any rate, I’ve been doing various classes and finishing some writing projects  and wanted to share a few podcasts that I enjoy! Maybe you’ll enjoy them to…or not. Either way, I’m not in any of them so my feelings are thusly intact.

Hey Neighbor Sizzle Reel!

Happy holler-days, everyone! The end of the year was just re-goddamn-diculous busy for me, but the most exciting part was my rad improv/sketch group, Hey Neighbor! shot a sizzle reel for a pilot we wrote.  It stars us! What a shock! We’re hoping to pitch that around in the coming year and who knows…maybe your TV will be invaded by a bunch of people who still don’t understand hash-tags!

Sue Wong Fashion Show, Alchemy & Masquerade

My bestie Tina-Louise Eckert and I attended Sue Wong’s recent fashion show wearing, what else, but our Sue Wong gowns. The show was awesome, nearly as awesome as the show before and after the show. People in the fashion world don’t give a flying fu–

And IT’S AWESOME. Next year, not to be undone, we will wear a unicorn horn and a pair of bicycle handlebars as our headgear and I imagine, we will get more compliments than we will know what to do with. Get ready for that! In the meantime, some fun pics…
