How to sell myself…just tip of the iceberg.

I am in post-grad land these days trying to build my life after I leave the walls of the CFA and I must admit that I am very excited! The main givens going out are that the path of an artist is difficult, the financial struggle is so real, and that embracing uncertainty is key. […]

Now What?

This past weekend I completed my Senior Acting Thesis. That is a sentence I cannot believe I just typed.
