After graduating in May from SUNY Purchase with a BFA in Acting, I’m back in NYC and breaking into the acting industry. Like so many recent graduates, I’ve been working as an extra—most notably for Showtime’s Billions. I saw Paul Giamatti at work, which made it worth the 5AM schlep!
I found a reliable artistic outlet (other than self-tapes, of course) – TikTok! It’s taught me a lot about directing and editing—at least with an iPhone. Lightning struck a few weeks ago when I got over 20,000 views on one of my videos. If you’re on TikTok, give me a follow!
I finished off my year participating in a cabaret performance at Don’t Tell Mama in midtown. It was the first real live performance I’d done since graduating, and I was as nervous as when I started as a freshman at LaGuardia over 8 years ago. I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t great to be back, though!
While I keep applying for opportunities on my own – I’m also working on getting an agent and/or manager. If you have any ideas, or general industry or career advice, please let me know. If you just want to grab a cup of coffee, or if you’re not in NY –a Zoom call– I would love and appreciate that!
Thanks for reading and staying in touch, see you all again in 3 months!
