Lots of things have been happening here in LaLa Land despite a difficult time. Bookings have been fruitful and I am grateful. Below is a snapshot of what has been going on.
2021 has a lot in store! I shot a national cable commercial with a wrestling legend that will be airing soon on ESPN, TNT, FOX and most news channels! In May I safely travel to Tennessee to shoot a lead in a feature film that is near and dear to me titled The Legacy of Christ, directed by Gunter H. Sanderson. I am also currently rehearsing for a MUSICAL WEBSERIES! It is very exciting for my inner musical theatre nerd!
In early February I wrapped on a NBC Peacock Documentary based on a podcast where I played a recurring character. The cast and crew were fantastic! The story is demented and scary. but I am looking forward to seeing it when it comes out! In January I shot a music video for Manchester Orchestra (an amazing band) directed Andrew Donoho, who has worked with Kesha, The Strokes. and Twenty One Pilots to name a few. My set daughter Christian Montoya was a delight and is a phenomenal little actress. It just dropped so CHECK IT OUT! I have also been doing several other ads, commercials and am now enrolled back at John Rosenfeld Studios! I can't wait to see what else is to come for 2021!
Last year, despite being crazy, had many highlights as well, including being featured in Taylor Swift's "The Man" music video! I was also a recurring character in "The Harvey Weinstein Podcast: Unfiltered", which had us actors re-enact the trials happening that day in New York (verbatim) for the world to hear. The podcast is currently in the top 50 true crime podcasts in some areas of the world and directed by Kiff Scholl, one of my favorite people to work with in LA.
I was in Beachbody's test group for a new program called Muscle Burns Fat which required me to go into the studio 5 days a week for 6 weeks and workout with Megan and a group of others, In our final week we had to continue from home due to the virus. After the test group I went on to be cast in the sample workout for Muscle Burns Fat Advanced which is now on Beachbody on Demand! This has been a life long dream of mine =)
Since June, when things started opening up again, I have done several commercial and industrials as well as two features and a short. I ended 2020 with a bang by booking my first co-star on Wild West Chronicles. a show on INSP TV. My episode is titled Stagecoach Mary and will be airing in March! Artifact, a short I had the pleasure of being in, has made it's rounds in the film festival circuit by winning 'Best Horror Short Film' at the Reel East Texas Film Festival and walking away with an honorable mention at the Santa Monica International Film Festival.
