My incredible hubby. Doesn’t he clean up well? This is from the night we celebrated some #Emmy nominees! 💍 🤵 There’s no one I’d rather walk through life and create things with. He’s 100% my rock. #handsome #emmy #losangeles #tv #film #husband #marriedlife
Read for a big bomb of truth telling. • What are you creating? Just three weeks from now, I get to play again... with a brilliant crew, incredible actor friends, and a script that spilled out of me just a year ago. It’s taken shapes and forms I did not foresee, and has stimulated and challenged my imagination in the process. I love to act. I love to write. And I love to direct. Anyone who tells you you need to stay within the lines of familiarity is operating out of fear. The tagline of this film is “friendship knows no boundaries.” Before, it was “hold on tight.” Interestingly, I have found the need to create boundaries with others throughout this process, and throughout my time spent here in LA. Life imitates art. Hold on tight? I was afraid of boundaries with folks I called friends. I held on. My metaphorical raft crashed. I let go and pulled myself out of the water. I established boundaries and now stick to them. Some went bananas. Some slithered out silently, a few went radio silent, and a few understood. The truth is, boundaries show you who will still be there when the water is still and when they can no longer ride a wave. I’ll tread water with them any day. #friendshipknowsnoboundaries #theraft #raftfilm #film #create #instadaily #womeninfilm #thriller #camping #outdoors #sagaftra #makemovies #director #actorlife #cinematography #cinema #sounddesign #art #expression #friendship #truth #losangeles
Read this for a boost. I am a soul in a body that makes mistakes and has questions about life. Separate the neuroses from your noble spirit. Meet your spirit and mind in the middle. Remember this experience of being in our mortal meat suit is temporary, and that the little things we agonize over (in my case, spelling errors... seriously.) are in fact meaningless in the face of the Universe. We move quickly and are hasty to doubt and burden ourselves with anything other than the love we owe to ourself and to each other. Question your decisions, question your routines. Question the things you say to yourself in the mirror. Note to self and those who need it. #goodvibes #friday #universe #positivity #instagood #instadaily #vibes #actorslife #fridaymood #selfhelp #selfcare #love #loveyourself
You are exactly where you need to be right now. This is what I need to remind myself of time and again, when the tides don’t shift fast enough or the sun sets too fast on a day where I’m gunning for the next milestone. You don’t need a map, a hand on a steering wheel, or to turn on the gps. There is something to be learned, uncovered, captured, grateful for, celebrated, right now. #goodvibesonly #goodvibes #mondaymotivation #tuesdaymotivation #advice #affirmation #mantra #yoga #meditation #love #instagood #instadaily #actor #actorslife #notetoself #lovenotes
It’s time to meet The Muppets on the Muppet Show tonight! @themuppets had an enormous impact on me and frankly, they still do. They’re the first thing I turn to when I’ve had a tough day, am feeling a little blue, or just need a little spark of magic. Every movie led me closer to realizing my own dreams as an actor, and kept me going on that path, putting a spring in my step and a song in my heart! I’m so grateful to have seen the @hensoncompany Jim Henson exhibit at @skirball_la yesterday. Anyone else love The Muppets like I do? Who’s your favorite? #muppets #jimhenson #actorslife #comedy #latergram #instadaily #instagood #goodvibes #losangeles #actorslife #kidfriendly #womeninfilm

A little WillyShakes wisdom. What we label as good or bad is a choice based on our own perception. Basically this is a more flowery way of saying “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” What do you believe? You know it only takes a single thought to change everything. #sunday #sundaysermon #shakespeare #goodvibes #goodvibesonly #beautiful #candles
Had an awesome #hotsetsaturdays shoot with the gang at @relentlessfilmworks today! They’re total pros and such a joy to work with!

Happy Monday. Here’s an outtake from my audition for Michael Scott in The Office Musical Parody. Since my husband @garrett.brown87 couldn’t hold it together, we decided he needed to face the opposite wall during this scene. 😂 And yes, I’m aware that Michael Scott is a male character. I was thrilled to see they were looking for men AND women for this role! #theoffice #actorslife #prisonmike #michaelscott #dundermifflin #comedy #audition #actor #la #ny #mondaymotivation #goodvibes #finerthingsclub
Welcome to the family, beautiful. And yes, to the left is a lamp shaped like a squirrel’s butt. #music #guitar #newaddition #newbaby #gift #artist #create #actorslife #writersofinstagram #saturdaynight #saturday
#fbf to last weekend when I spent my #birthday listening to my grandpa play at an old folks home upstate. This man came from the humblest of means and taught himself to play the guitar by ear. He and his brother are still in the band together to this day and now that they no longer do it professionally, they use their talent to entertain and uplift senior citizens in the community. So much talent and humanity! This video is just a teeny snippet of the evening. And my grandpa? He’s not just a ham, he’s the whole 🐖. If you want to know where my love of performing came from, look no further. #family #friday #flashbackfriday #instagood #grandparents #music #country #bluegrass
Made some time for stillness and skipping rocks this morning.🙌🏻❤️ #instagood #nature #waterfall #meditation #gooutside #outdoors #upstateny #pixleyfalls #water #earth #meditation
This is not my cake, but it IS my birthday. Setting my intention and making my wishes! Happy and grateful to be spending this time with family. Thanks for another trip around the sun, Universe! #birthday #instagood
Location scouting in pretty much a temperate rainforest. These rock formations are even more beautiful in person! Thrilled to be working toward our next short! 🌲🌲🌿🍃🍀🍁🍂 #film #filmlife #actorlife #director #indiefilm #womeninfilm #forest #upstateny
