Wanna Grab a Beer?

She's at it again with a new round of headshots, compliments of Leah Huebner Photography.  Now, I'll drink to that!

Glamour Girl

A beautiful candid from a rehearsal for the Golden Stag New Year's Eve bash at the legendary Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

Standing Ovation

A candid shot by the photographer at the 2015 Ovation Awards.  Ironically, the Coeurage Theatre production that I was representing, Failure: A Love Story, turned out to be an award-winner.

Also, let's note the default pose that I'm taking here.  Once a dancer, always a dancer.

Vintage Flair

One of the many shots taken by the charming Chris Rubeiz.  Talented actor by day, talented photographer...also by day.  We shot mid afternoon.  But the point is that this guy is a regular Renaissance man.

Mr. Grey Will See You Now

A still from the onewordnocaps sketch parody of Fifty Shades of Grey.  I'm giving my best Anastasia Steele eyes.

Book of Danni

An opening shot from our onewordnocaps Season 2 trailer.  Here I am in my natural irrationally optimistic state.

It's a Wonderful Wonderful Life

A still from It's a Wonderful Wonderful Life, a sketch from the comedic minds of onewordnocaps.  Things are looking sunny for Violet, but not for long...

Flashdancin'

A shot by the ever talented and generous Adrien Delstanche.  

Rockin' the Red Carpet

Pictured here with the hilarious Katie Canavan, the dashing Joe Calarco, and the elegant Margaret Katch on the 2015 Ovation Awards red carpet.  We fancy.

Relative Eternity

A shot from Relative Eternity: a beautifully cinematic, spiritual, and thought provoking piece on mortality and forgiveness.  

Vampire: The Masquerade

After our fun video shoot, they decided to publish a book and wanted me to be the face of the Toreador vampire clan.  Shot by the talented and ever-so-limber Jamais Vu.

You Were Saying?

Working the ever-cliche lawyer look in my headshot session with Leah Huebner.  "I object!"...to you saying that she doesn't take a good photo.

Monkeying Around

On the set of Zing Factory's pilot presentation, Hit Refresh! Mr. Nibbles is even getting in on the action.

Anna of my Heart

This wasn't for anything except my pure enjoyment.  For Halloween, I took a stab at making an Anna (of Disney's Frozen) costume and couldn't resist showing it off how domesticated I had become in the month of October.

Chris Cook Photography

Can't keep this animal caged, am I right? 

Crash the Superbowl Spec

I have to say, the directors took a leap by casting this pasty Gangletron as the "cool beer-chuggin' jersey-wearin' sports fan," but I'm grateful because I got to kick butt with these fierce ladies all day.  Moral of the Spec: A  little cross dressing and a lot of Doritos will get you into even the most exclusive party.

Nasty Weather

Happier times with my onscreen boyfriend for the student film Nasty Weather.

It's Getting Hot in Here

Another still from Fever. Reach for the sky, ladies!

Vamp it Up

Now here's a shoot that I can sink my teeth into.  Posing as a vampire for the By Night promo video on none other than the Queen Mary.  

Get Yo Head in the Game

A still from Relative Eternity.  This movie has nothing to do with Scrabble, nothing at all, but I had to choose this shot for immortalizing my game face.  Seriously, don't trust that smile.  I am about to Bingo his ass into Hasbro oblivion.

Enlighten Me Then

Another still from our onewordnocaps sketch, Fifty Shades of Felt.  Sure, she looks innocent, but things are about to get pretty freaky...

Welcome to Menchie's!

Your faithful Menchie's counter girl at your service!  Such a fun, sugar filled shoot that, strangely, didn't end with them offering me a lifetime supply of fro yo.  Oh well.  You win some, you lose some.

Big thanks to the man, Mark Sikes, for taking time out of his horror filled, Blog writing schedule to cast this eager Pollyanna as the face of Menchie's.  You have no idea what you started, Mark. ; )  

A Rose is a Rose is a Rose

Even though we both look like we're sleeping here, a friendship was born in this moment.  I give you my insufferable costar, Jared Vandenberg, whom I can safely say is now one of my dearest pals in LA.  And woof, that's as sentimental as I get about this goober. 

Big Douche Chill

The first webseries that I worked on and hands down one of my favorite productions to have been a part of.  Playing the alcoholic, financially responsible,  yet emotionally inaccessible Sara was a true joy, but it would have been nothing if I hadn't had the incomparable Mitch Lerner to improvise off of.  Oh, Julien.

You Give Me Fever

A still from Golden Stag's rendition of Fever.  Is it just me or are things getting hot in here?

Wonderfullly...Zombified?

Told ya.

Hit Refresh

The amazing, collaborative cast of Hit Refresh in a moment of anticipation.  Will Barbara Knox put an end to the hi-jinks of this rag tag crew?  Hopefully, not.  We plan to be around for awhile ; )

Hollywood Girl

A still from a photoshoot with the lovely Gabe Romero, shot at the gorgeous and surprisingly hidden Los Angeles Reservoir.

I Never Said...

What?  What did you never say?!?!

...I Love You.  Oh, that's better.

I Never Said I Love You is the passion project of Brazilian director Olavo Junior, which depicts a vintage love affair that has a second chance to be saved.  

Tramp Vamp

That's one jealous vampire that you don't want to piss off.  I've got my eye on you, gurl.

Hitmakers

On set with the director and most popular girl in school, Mark Cope, for the insanely hilarious Hitmakers pilot.  In this crass, highly improvised sitcom, I got to play along with musical mastermind Stephen Slate and the fast-paced comic genius of Adam Ray.    

Get Yo' Nerd On

Photo by the immensely talented (behind and in front of the camera) Leah Huebner.

Women and Men and Women

Yet another collaboration with the wonderful Mitch Lerner on the short film Women and Men and Women.  Here, I get to play a Jessica Rabbit type vixen who wins the lusty heart of our generic protagonist.  How did this look come to be?  Duct tape.  Lots of Duct Tape.

Image of a Rising Star

They say you've made it when you're playing a sick person on a hospital drama.

...do they say that?  I hope they do.  Otherwise, I look like shit for nothing.

Diagnosis: Dead or Alive

Here's an action shot from my first TV role as Jamie Arliss, a real life medical anomaly who beat the odds and survived (spoiler alert) a vampire tumor on her heart that literally drained her for years without her knowing.  It was an honor, and such a strange coincidence, to play a fellow Rochesterian in my television debut.  Garbage plates unite!  

Sweet Charity

Flaunting my lil' innocent self as Rosie in the Knightsbridge Theatre's production of Sweet Charity.  Hey Big Spender, spend a little time with me!

Top 5

Behind the scenes of Top 5, our Youtube pop culture countdown show that is just as zany, fast-paced, and fun offscreen as it is on.

Passing Moment
Shake What Yo Mamma Gave Ya

A still from a dance with Chiquita banana herself.

For the First Time in Forever...

I touched a sewing machine.  

The Signs

An outtake from the short film The Signs, alongside the ever adorable Brandon Crowder and Cory Chance.
