I’m back folks! Ok, so I didn’t actually go anywhere, but I haven’t been spending much time on my site, and for good reason! For starters, I’ve been hanging out over at Sassy Mama in LA and loving it. But mainly, I’ve been focusing on me, myself and I – which roughly translates to my career. Last summer I was really inspired by someone in my life. You know, one of those things that by virtue of being around them and seeing them do their thing makes you want to step it up a notch. Yeah, that sort of thing. So I started writing creatively again and thus developed a concept for a TV show, and after consulting with and soft pitching it to my team, made it my sole focus over the past few months. That concept went from fledgeling idea, to scripted and shot … and is now going into editing. So yeah, I kinda sorta became an executive producer. The next steps (post editing) are still up in the air as we’re in the process of scheduling a few meetings with networks, so we’ll see exactly where my baby ends up! I can tell you that it’s a comedy, and I’ll leave you with that…and this:
Dare you to guess what we were up to
It has recently come to my attention that my TV show ‘East Los High’ has been picked up as a Hulu Exclusive Series and will will start airing on Hulu starting June 3rd! I play a doctor on this show based on the relationships and growing pains of teens coming of age in East L.A. Please keep up with the show on the following social media channels and tune in when it airs!

And in another bit of good news, yesterday I got word that I booked a role in a major motion picture! It also happened to be my birthday, and I can’t think of a better gift to have received!
I was called on by a producer friend to step in on a webseries that she was working on. I love the work that I do, especially when I know I’m going to be working with a top-notch production team so of course I jumped on board! I’ve been sworn to secrecy on this project so I thought I’d use this opportunity to show what things look like behind the scenes.
Movie magic at its finest:
I’m back! The hiatus from my site was purely unintentional but necessary. At the end of 2012 I managed to break my laptop charger (which has yet to be replaced) and soon after I got caught up in the whirlwind of apartment hunting and moving. Needless to say, all that action left little time for writing.
And now it’s a new year and I couldn’t be more excited about things to come! I’m still settling into my new place in Beverly Hills and looking forward to pilot season. I’m also getting back into the gym next week to start prepping to hit the competition stage again! In the past few weeks I’ve managed to lose a bit of muscle which is a big no-no for me. Fortunately the holidays weren’t full of overindulgence so I’m confident that I’ll bounce back fairly quickly.
On the good news front, I’ve just become a Girls Gone Sporty Ambassador and am looking forward to representing and working with other athletically inclined women!
I also found out today that ‘Love Overboard‘ will be airing on BET this Sunday January 6 at 11:30 PM EST! Tune in if you didn’t get to watch the play when we toured in 2009.
I gotta get back to unpacking, but I leave you with this:
A still frame from ‘The Bathroom Diaries’ which will be airing in late 2013. More details to come!
People of the world! Earlier this month my play ‘Love Overboard’ was released on DVD, and it’s available in stores nationwide as well as on amazon.com And if you’re technologically savvy or even not in the mood to leave the house, it’s available for download too!
