Blue Buffalo Commercial
Wow! Where did the year go?
So, I definitely cannot believe how quickly 2018 has flown by! But with it, I've had my busiest year yet. I filmed another national commercial back in March for DXL Men's Apparel. Then, I started working on the Indie Feature Film, "Alpha Rift." Production still continues on that end, and will be wrapped closer to 2019. We have a celebrity making an appearance on that set. Plus, I've been booking a ton of commercials, and I am super grateful for all of the opportunities. My latest commercial is for Bose and the NFL, and I got to do my own stunt work on set. It was super fun, and I had a blast with everyone involved.
Busy end of the year...and beginning of 2018!
Auditions, auditions, auditions....and then Bookings, bookings, bookings!
Things have really been flowing along this entire fall and throughout the start of this new year! Filmed a bunch of commercials, including a National Spot for Blue Buffalo Dog Food! Check it out above!
LOTS on the horizon for the new year! Filmed an industrial, a commercial, and more to come soon!
Clever Little Lies at Florida Studio Theatre
I just opened "Clever Little Lies" at The Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota, Florida! I am playing the role of Jane in the regional premier of this hilarious comedy about sex, relationships, and secrets! "Malandra has the fluid, expressive face of a born comedian." Check out the review!
Summer of 2016: Busy, Busy, Busy!
This summer has been crazy busy!! I certainly can't complain! I recorded two voiceovers, filmed a fun period scene in the upcoming Independent Feature Film, Wild Nights With Emily, (starring Molly Shannon); did a reading with PTP/NYC at The Atlantic Stage 2, and to top it all off, I got to go to the DNC with Robert Smigel, Funny or Die, and Hulu to film Triumph's Summer Election Special 2016!

"True Crime with Aphrodite Jones"--It's a wrap!
I just wrapped shooting "True Crime with Aphrodite Jones" Season 6, Episode 7 with NBC Peacock Productions! I have always had a blast with this production company, and I continue to do so. This time around, though, I got to wear some extra gruesome makeup! Tune into ID Channel on Monday, June 20th at 9pm EST to see the full details of this 'Head Case.'
"I'd Kill For You": 'Truth or Death'
I've been waiting a while, but the time has finally come to check out my newest TV work on Investigation Discovery! I had the awesome opportunity to play an Allene Skinner--an intense woman who is only out for herself as she spins a web of lies around everyone in her life to ultimately get what she wants!! This is the 8th episode in season 3 of "I'd Kill For You", airing on ID, and produced by NBC Peacock Productions. I had a blast shooting with this entire team, and I can't thank them enough for all of their awesome energy throughout our 3 long days shooting!
Check out the episode below!
Heading back to the dark....
I just finished shooting the independent feature film, The 7th Secret," in Philadelphia, PA! This team has been amazing to work with since day 1, which started about 2 years ago! They brought me on board to record an original song composed by Matthew Hunter and David Tyler. This movie received such a buzz, that even Joan Jett wanted to get in on the action, and she has contributed music to the soundtrack, too! Check out the website, and the original song I recorded and collaborated on for this film, "Heading Back to the Dark"!
Dry Land and The Contemporary American Theatre Festival
I just returned back to NYC from The Contemporary American Theatre Festival in Shepherdstown, WV, and what an incredible summer it has been! I had the rare opportunity to work on three new plays, including one world premier--a commission from New Dramatists--We Are Pussy Riot! I also had the rare opportunity to work on a very challenging and poignant piece of art--Dry Land--and to take on the lead in this thought provoking play. Check out the press for this beautiful piece of theatre!
