Today’s audition: newly widowed mother of 13 year old daughter; wardrobe, very specifically curated. I love auditioning - that 1st time in the room, before notes are given, the only voice in my head is my own, based on clues found in the script, to answer my endless questions of how & why. I love following the writer’s lead. I love what writers do. And i love administering my character’s wardrobe to the best of my ability. OBJECTIVE: to win over casting, to make it into their file and to be invited back to play. LONG GAME STRATEGY. #thinkingactor #longgame #strategichussle #hussle #newagent #actorsgrind #actorslifestyle #indiefilms #wardrobechoices #auditiongrind
Old Headshot Day 🎭
Okay I know I’m a day late, but I couldn’t skip out on the fun! Circa 2013 and in full black and white glory, this is the first headshot (besides my senior pictures which I definitely don’t have digital copies of!) I started submitting to theaters. Are we surprised that no one called me in to audition?! 😂
For the first time in five weeks I won’t be in Greece for the weekend and I’m having mixed emotions about it 🎭
Do you ever feel like there’s something missing after a show closes? It feels strange that I’m not going to the theater tonight.
Messing around in a studio today..... because if you aren’t doing what you love, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?
Shoutout to Telsey for gender neutral bathrooms with relaxing ocean sounds. (Even though it definitely smells like someone had the nervous audition poops in here). 😬🚽

Not sure how I made it through the week, but I survived! Pursuing your dreams is both exhilarating and terrifying! 🤷🏻♀️
Work | Rehearse | Sleep | Repeat •
This show is so much fun and has kept me on my toes throughout the rehearsal process. Tonight is our last time in the rehearsal space and tomorrow we move into the theater! 🤩

“Always show up” is my mantra lately .... 🙏🏽 You DEFINITELY won’t get the part if you don’t even try. At least give yourself a chance! No matter what, every audition is a learning opportunity, an experience, and oftentimes a free master class! Let all the “no’s” make you more determined to get that one “yes!” And sometimes you think your audition sucks and you still get a callback 😉soooo let’s all strive to not underestimate ourselves, our talents, or our abilities! 🎭 💃🏽 🎵 #auditiongrind #callbacks #intheheights #rent #hunchbackofnotredame #musicaltheater #headshots #resume
Cheesin’ so hard 😁
It is rainy, cold, and grey here today. I did not want to leave my house. I wanted to curl up under a big blanket and drink coffee. But I had this audition to go to. I’d been prepping for it for a while and really wanted to do well (of course you always want to!) because I’m new to the area. So I dragged myself out into the rain and at the end of it all this is how I feel 🎭
