Uzo Aduba was introduced to me from my friend Saycon Sengbloh. She told me I just had to connect with this talented sista named Uzo. Well, Uzo and I met up during a dinner break she had and we had a chance to talk and learn about each other. We spent the hour talking shop and then finished with this great interview.
She is currently performing with the new musical “Venice” in Culver City, CA. If you are in the area, go check it out!
Hello Soap Fans! I recently played an FBI Agent on 2 episodes of “The Young & The Restless.”! No lines…but I was extremely featured. So grateful for the opportunity. I’ve been learning so much about soap acting by just hanging out on the set. More to come! View Video Here
Some say if you want to make it as an actress you’ve either got to be in New York or Los Angeles. I’m inclined to agree.
I’ve been living in Georgia on and off since the 90’s and have had the opportunity to experience many things. Being the bigger fish in a smaller pond has its perks. You’re able to hone your craft and make a name for yourself on a local level. I’ve been able to be in movies and theatre that probably would have been much harder had I started out in New York or LA. I think it’s always better to head to one of those cities once you have a resume on you already. Just starting out in those markets is extremely hard and frustrating.
With that said, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s time for me to make the to move to Los Angeles. I want to make some contacts there and take my career to the next level. I plan on keeping my contacts in Georgia (they were hard to get ya know) and doing the bi-coastal thing. I love living in the south, but I know it is time.
I’m originally from Bronx, New York and I’m not in too much of a rush to head back to the hustle and bustle that only New York has. When I performed on Broadway last summer with “The Lion King” I dreaded having to take the train and deal with all of those New Yorkers day to day.
I’m excited about Los Angeles and all of its possibilities. I’ll be essentially starting from ground zero. I’ll have to search for agents, managers and workshops so that I’m able to network. I’ve learned from other actors and actress that you’ve got to do your own homework. Don’t just wait for your agent to call you.
I’ll be doing some video postings on my agent search. Perhaps you might be looking for the same thing as I am.
I’m truly going on faith that this next step is right one. The journey continues!!!
Until next time, stay inspired.

Hey yall! I decided to send you a quick hello from the air. This tall black actress has some long legs and I think I’ve just reached my 7th hour of flying time today and I’m just trying to maintain my cool. I’ve got 2 more hours to go so I don’t have much choice. At least I got a window seat and I’m seating next to a sweet old couple who offered me some of their chex mix earlier.
So why the long flight? I’m headed to Anchorage, Alaska for 6-weeks to perform with “The Lion King.” I promise to bring my camera to work everyday just in case Ms. Palin decides to make a cameo!
I hear that Alaska is beautiful even though it can get pretty cold. I don’t like being so far away from home, but it seems like it has the possibility of being a wonderful experience. I’m hoping to take some tours of the glaciers and catch some pics of the moose in town.
I think its time for another nap now…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Until next time, stay inspired.
