When in Dublin...๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ€

โœจHave you ever had a rejection give you HOPE?โœจ

I received this letter today from USD. They have an amazing MFA program associated with @theoldglobe in San Diego and only accept SEVEN students each year (out of probably 700+ applicants). Even though it was a rejection letter (and who likes those?), to read that I was one of their finalists gave me so much joy.
..
Iโ€™ve been training in LA for nearly seven years and have spent the last two years focused almost exclusively on classical theatre/Shakespeare. When I auditioned for this program last month, I felt so good about the work I did in the room. I left feeling like, โ€œWow - that was a true representation of where Iโ€™m at as an artist.โ€
..
Am I bummed I didnโ€™t get accepted? Absolutely. But I should also note that I auditioned for this program back in 2017 and just got a flat out rejection letter, so being a finalist this year shows me that I have made PROGRESS. As a craftsman (because acting is ๐Ÿ’ฏ% a craft), that is all I can strive for!
..
Shout out to all the other artists out there who are learning from + celebrating their successes AND rejections. And finally, shout out to the @globeusdmfa class of 2021. I can only imagine the talent + work ethic yโ€™all are bringing to the program. Have fun these next two years! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Oh hey there new commercial! ๐Ÿ‘‹

Remember that time I fostered two bunnies?๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฐ Yeah, that was fun - except for the time this little one chewed the corners off my bathroom cabinets. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

My 2019 mantra: What would RBG do? #womensmarch2019 ๐Ÿ’—

Looking out my window like rain, why you gotta make my hair so fluffy? #curlyhairproblems

Fun fact: My brother and I always get mistaken for husband + wife. Nope. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Weโ€™re just a couple a derpy siblings.

Holy cow. Stumbled across this photo from the first film I ever did in LA. Just a babe. ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ

Fun fact: I still own (and wear) that dress. Keepinโ€™ it classy since 2014. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

Isnโ€™t Instagram supposed to be a snapshot of life in real-time?

Well, hereโ€™s my current status: Burrowed under a wool blanket, listening to the rain, drinking tea, and dreaming of tacos.

This photo: None of the above...except tacos. I always dream of tacos. ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿฅฐ
