  • Invited by Seth Rudetsky to sing at the Town Hall with a bunch of Broadway stars including Donna Murphy, Norm Lewis, Patina Miller, and Krysta Rodriguez for a benefit concert supporting the adoption charity You Gotta Believe! I was initially asked to be a backup singer, but got bumped to do the feature high belt duet in "Let the Sunshine in" alongside Sharon Catherine Brown for the finale!!

  • Completed my first international promotional tour for my indie film Skye Hoshi: Anime Girl! We visited conventions and FanExpos in Boston, Chicago, Virginia Beach, and Toronto, Canada! At each venue we would have a screening followed by a panel. This was my first time going on tour to meet and make fans, taking pictures, signing autographs, and I had the BEST of times!!

So far, it has won best fantasy short at the IndieX Filmfest in LA, and is an official selection for the North Hollywood Cinefest, the Smodcastle film festival, and FilmQuest, which is consistently ranked as one of the top genre festivals in the world
