LONGHAIRS | a short film - NOW STREAMING ON AMAZON VIDEO!
"Love is love."
Just released: the bizarre that is Bastille's video for their single, "Torn Apart".
After having the time of my life improvising a modern dance for the audition,
I am in it!
Bastille definitely inspired lots of steering wheel drumming and humming whenever their first single, "Pompeii", came on the radio, so being a part of the rising UK band's music video has led to many a gigglerush.
The video is weird and unexpected.
Catch me dancing longingly and spewing out some musings on love
in the beginning and latter half.
Watch with an open mind and maybe a screen protector if you're at work. ;)
Excited to shoot and play with Rich Jhong Photo!
Had fun bringing out a variety of personality slices.
The best days are the ones that are nothing like the day before.
Things are in the pipeline! But film uses very long pipes.
This snarky comedic series that I costumed and appeared in many months ago just came out of said pipeline and exploded onto Hulu.
Guys. After lots of literal blood, sweat, and tears, we're done with a dance/music video we've been fancying for months. It's to a bangin' song by Australian band The Preatures, and we had the privilege of meeting and getting a personal go-ahead from them before going for the whole thing.
It's meant to be a little unpolished and chaotic, just like feelings and people and such. Enjoy.
It's been a while and many things have happened, but what just happened was...
We hit the Boulder International Film Festival! Performed scenes live at the fest with CityShakes and spent some time in rockin' Boulder. And got altitude sickness.
Some projects on my mind:
A bit of bad, dirty fun starring in an indie-cult feature.
Acting in and associate producing Just Makeda, a life-Altering comedic webseries.
Beaming proud to see our City Shakespeare Company's Macbeth blasting through its fall run after helping produce and design it. Set in the intimate round of The Space in Santa Monica, it's some wondrous mix of close-up film and visceral theater.
Getting familiar with film -
Rolleiflexes and Hasselblads galore!

Shakespeare meets film adaptation, Othello meets the boardroom.
What happens when Othello meets the modern, corporate world? Desdemona becomes Asian, for one. Shot our initial scenes on a freezing LA (but really Antarctic) soundstage and loved every minute.
New stills of short and sweet commercials now surfacing.
With As You Like It wrapped, it's time for full film submersion! Embracing an intensive, exhausting and thoroughly exciting summer at Stella Adler's Art of Acting studio. Keepin' the tools sharp and the parallel parking skills intact. #Hollywood
Mother Nature showed us that nothing can be permanently set on a set. The Palisades showed us that dogs like Shakespeare, too. Our friends, old and new, showed us amazing support. And we hope we showed you a wonderful time!
Revisiting old projects while updating the site - oh, the fun we had!
The cast of As You Like It descended upon a beautiful Chinese restaurant palace for a promo shoot. Let the frolicking begin.
The show opens June 8.

The Lukimonstar has been cast as the nice-guy-spurning, jerk-adoring Phoebe in CityShakes's summer production of As You Like It! The role... is not a stretch.
See you in June!
Lukimonstar is excited to sign with
Arete Talent Agency for commercial representation!
Arete (pron.: /ˈærətiː/; Ancient Greek: ἀρετή), in its basic sense, means excellence of any kind. In its earliest appearance in Greek, this notion of excellence was ultimately bound up with the notion of the fulfillment of purpose or function: the act of living up to one's full potential. - from wikipedia.com
