As if it wasn't thrilling enough for Julia Solomonoff's film Nobody's Watching to premier at this year's Tribeca Film Festival, my scene partner— the wonderful Guillermo Pfening — won Best Actor in an International Narrative Feature! So well deserved and what a joy it was to act with him.
Out of thousands of submissions, Nadie Nos Mira (translation: Nobody's Watching) - by Julia Solomonoff starring Guillermo Pfenning and Paolo Baldion - will be one of ten films premiering in International Narrative Feature Film category at Tribeca Film Festival this year.
I couldn't be prouder to have played a small role!
I'm not exactly a senior yet, but...
A fun two days of filming, starting out in my old neighborhood Brooklyn Heights.

Telling the stories of middle age women, hilariously! What could be better?! Great cast - Darlene Dues, Katherine Dudas, Alexandra Foucard, and Lori Funk - and crew! Claire Dub (writer/director), Randy Rubin (DP), Maggie Goldrainer (stylist), Marissa Masella (makeup), Mia Escobar (hair)
with a completely delightful all-female cast, stylist margaret goldrainer and director Claire Dub for her upcoming comedic short filming this month. Thrilled to be a part of this stupendous team! I'm sworn to secrecy but look forward to sharing more when the time is right.
Had the great pleasure of playing a supporting role in upcoming dramatic short Dark Blue starring Ashley Steele and Jonathan Drew, directed by Doug Bollinger. Photography/poster by Andres Bohorquez.
Just returned home from Davenport, Iowa after five days of shooting a leading role in Stephen Folker's feature film Overdue, a film Stephen describes as 85% comedy and 15% horror. I play the eternally optimistic Janet the librarian. Marvelous cast and crew - Look for it in 2017!
Very excited to start work on several new projects - a radio drama with dramatist and voice director Ed Champion (something along the lines of Twilight Zone meets Robert Altman) - and a new film project with deft young director Sommer Rusinski that will explore the natural evolution of the fantasies of youth. As always, more to come.
In September I take on the role of Anne, lead character in Katharine Nova's next short film There's Always Tomorrow. This is one of those parts you pine for as an actor - rich, complicated, risky - in a story that is tender and deeply original. More to come!
Really proud to a part of this terrific cast in a mysterious and beautiful short film. A fabulous night at its first screening at DCTV in Manhattan.
Looking forward to the private first screening of short film To Whom It May Concern, a witty contemplation on quarter life crisis that I had the privilege to act in. Gabriella Piazza (what a voice, what a body, what a talent!) stars, Blake Rice directs. Yay team!

Comfy, green, a good night's sleep... what's not to love! Proud to have worked on this ad campaign for Saatva's new gel/foam luxury mattress line Loom and Leaf. Here are some screen grabs from the shoot at Mayo Studios, Long Island City. With actor/model Pascal Yen-Pfister. [To view videos, click images.]
Was delighted to reunite with this lovely team yesterday for a little ADR on their short To Whom It May Concern - should put a bow on it in time for this year's film festival season. Here are some stills from the shoot back in January, with Blake Rice directing, Gaby Piazza starring. Beautiful cast/crew, wonderful script, to die for set, an all around great day - so grateful.

So delighted to be featured in the #IGotCast column in Backstage talking about a recent casting and my 'process' for submitting to projects.
The woman I play in Nadie Nos Mira (Nobody's Watching) is an affluent NYC mom/executive living a lifestyle inaccessible to the Argentine characters in the film. She's looking out for her own needs and somewhat oblivious to their dreams and struggles - so, in a way, she kind of represents the collective American myopia about the immigrant experience. It is a movie with a lot of heart and I was delighted to be a small part of it.
When asked about how I approach self-submissions, I realized that, for me, it's very Marie Kondo. Does it spark something in me? If so, I trust that and submit. I'm leaning on intuition more and more because good things tend to follow when I do. Grateful to the Nobody's Watching team and for Backstage for the shout out.
Happy New Year! I think it was Amy Adams who said, the actors job is not to get the part, it's to build a body of work. For me, that's what 2016 is about: playing, connecting, and continuing to build a body of work I am proud of.
And so far, so good. In recent weeks, I was delighted to perform a leading role in the short film Alone, shoot a scene for upcoming webisode comedy Free Therapy, and win supporting roles in two upcoming short films Dark Blue and Mary Whitman Comes Home (both shooting...Read More
