PREMIERE: Finding St. Isabel

Yesterday, I attended the premiere of Finding St. Isabel. The theater was packed and the audience definitely seemed to enjoy the hard work that dozens of talented crew members put into making this film happen. A few lazy actors contributed as well…

Here’s one, on the right:

Forgive the terrible lighting. We are both actually very cute.










Also pictured on the left is director Nikki Rodriguez, who sacrificed a lot of sleep to bring Suzanne Rivecca’s short story “Look, Ma, I’m Breathing” to vibrant life.

I couldn’t be happier to have been a part of this project. Now, Nikki and her crew are submitting the film to festivals around the country. So excited to see how Finding St. Isabel makes its way through the world!


WORK IN PROGRESS: Finding St. Isabel

We’re halfway way there! I’ve been lucky enough to be hard at work the past two weekends, shooting a great short film called Finding St. Isabel.


Emoting so hard…

I play Isabel, a lapsed Catholic woman who lied about seeing the Virgin Mary when she was a child. Her lie meets a series of coincidences that make her a national news sensation. She finally admits her lie and goes on to write a book about her experience. Now a best-selling author, Isabel finds herself the object of unwanted attention from a potential landlord who understands her far better than she is willing to admit…


On location in West Virginia this past weekend.

I am so excited to see and share this finished film. Look out for more news in April 2016!



CASTING NEWS: Apartment 304

I’m going to play an FBI agent!

I was recently cast in a short project called Apartment 304. It will shoot in Columbus, Ohio and may evolve into a longer series.

In this action/drama short (and maybe pilot), Chad Leonard is a troubled veteran dealing with ongoing poverty and addiction issues at home plus the outside pressures of his military past, in the form of ME. I play Agent Edwards, Chad’s former handler in a covert government program, and I am calling him back into service.
