A bit more on that...
I've always had a flair for the dramatics.
At six years old, I stormed into the kitchen and demanded my Mom put me on TV.
Years later, I got to work opposite Amy Poehler on NBC's Parks and Recreation.
Life's got a funny way of handing us what we want & I can't wait to see what's next!
Writing kind of snuck up on me. Yet at the same time, it was always there.
We didn't have a drama club in my grammar school. So instead of playing sports, I absorbed myself in my notebook - scribbling down dialogue. Having never read a screenplay before, by thirteen, I completed five.
For the longest time, I assumed writing was the creative outlet I had to settle for because of the lack of theatrical productions in my neighborhood - but now it's just a part of me.
Okay... this one... If I could name the least likely best friend I ever thought I'd have in this career, it'd be this guy!
Producing is b*tch. :) There's really no other way around it. It's a lot of work that goes unnoticed unless something's a hit.
But I will say: It's the most empowering thing I've ever done for my career.
Every actor. Every writer. Every creative... should produce.
Don't let this picture fool you. I spent the better part of my childhood bursting into tears for no apparent reason, and this dance class was no exception.
Miraculously, I pulled it together for the showcase (evidenced by the picture) - But this made my transition to choreographer all the more confusing to... well, everyone.
For about ten years, I freestyled in my room to whatever Z100 played on the radio. Turns out, that was all the training I needed.
