More Scary Mommy fun – this time doing an ad for Walmart! So thankful to Artistic Director Nick Fabiano for once again inviting me to play! This spot was a fast-talking, constantly moving dance with the camera and the challenge was exciting! I loved working with our director Ben Stumpf, my co-star Michael Cruz Kayne, and the entire Scary Mommy team! Check it out HERE!
Holy Cow!!! In addition to our “Best Short Film” nomination, I’ve been nominated for “Best Actor (Female)” at the Golden Gate International Film Festival for my work in “As It Seems“. The role of Annette was my favorite, most challenging role to date. It feels so good to be recognized in this way – Many thanks to my director, Nancy Menagh, to our awesome cast and crew, and to Net Effect Media and the Golden Gate International Film Festival! I’m a happy girl!
“As It Seems” screens this Saturday, October 29th, 4:10 PM at AMC Theaters Cupertino.

Back To School: What You Hope For vs. What It Is
Posted by Scary Mommy on Friday, August 18, 2017
It’s that time of year again… the leaves are just starting to turn, the kids are milking what’s left of the summer, the parents are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel… and my newest video for Scary Mommy is up!
Branded content for Welch’s Fruit Snacks – I’m thankful I was able to work with director Nick Fabiano and the Some Spider team once more! Co-starring the talented and adorable Dane West & Yana Samarska!
TONIGHT – “At The End Of The Cul-de-Sac” screens at HollyShorts! 10 PM at TCL Chines Theaters!!!
Directed by Paul Trillo, this twisted little film is not to be missed! In one continuous shot, a man (Gabe Fazio) has a public meltdown in the middle of a residential cul-de-sac. A marvel of drone cinematography, carefully choreographed action and an awesome ensemble cast!
This Vimeo Staff Pick premiered at Palm Springs International Shortfest, has been written up in several industry publications, and it was featured in TIME Magazine… and it’s just getting started!
If you miss this screening in Los Angeles, you can watch it online HERE.
“The Last Visit”, starring Alexis Lariviere and Dan Berkey and directed by Mark Clauburg premiered at the Jersey Shore Film Festival! We had a packed house for our screening AND I was able to reunite with my “Benny’s Recital” co-star Ashley Licata, who plays my daughter in “The Last Visit”. This sweet film will screen next in September at the Northeast Film Festival and in October at the Golden Door Film Festival!
