November 21st, 2019: "Sex, Love and Cops" Show
Based on the gorgeous and talented Wendy WIlkins' memoir about her time as a police officer in Australia, I am appearing in her live show at Bar Lubitsch in West Hollywood on Thursday, 11/21.
I'll sing a few tunes and be part of readings from this sexy fun and sometimes poignant memoir perfectly suited to our times.
Side note, I haven't performed at Bar Lubitsch in NINE YEARS! It's one of my favorite venues... and it's a particularly appealing choice for "Irina Volka" as well... ;-p Come to the show, and you'll see why!
"Sex, Love and Cops"
Featuring author, actress, and former cop Wendy Wilkins;
Erin Carere and more actresses to be named soon.

Oh, I've been singing, just for film scores lately instead of live events! I just recorded something special that I can't yet announce, but let's just say it was exciting to get BACH to singing arias for a film about a certain FEMALE FRENCH SAINT, but with a new twist!
I also made a brief stint as IRINA VOLKA for the score for "Near Death." We're getting pretty meta here!
Hey all~ I've been busy producing, recording, writing and auditioning. I haven't had performances to share but I AM back on 12Radio.com talking spiritual solutions for dreams, health and well-being! Thursdays at 9 am pacific time.

My friend Gregor Collins has this awesome series called "Humans in my Phone," which includes many different people he knows ranging from great singers to Wrdsmth the Street Artist to.... MOI!
I just wrapped a role (#2 on the callsheet, y'all!) in a documentary/ horror hybrid... I play a woman who underwent hell during REAL EVENTS. I won't say more about it just yet, but as soon as I can, I will be thrilled to let you all know when and where you can watch it. I got to see just a few clips from the dailies and the film looks incredible. I had such a wonderful time in Alabama working with an incredible director, crew and fellow castmates.... I cannot wait to tell you all more about it!
Meanwhile, "Near Death," the short film, is screening at the Chain NYC Film Festival in August. Look to the right to buy tickets! August 15th at 6 pm.
The trailer for "NEAR DEATH" is here!
Meanwhile, "Spy Contra Spia," also known as "Spy V Spia," is in post-production. "Near Death" is currently in the film festival submission process, and I am so excited to see what's ahead for me and my beloved partner in crime (I mean entertainment and life! LOL), Carlo Carere.
I just wrapped a hilarious short film, "The Lemon Grove Annual Charity Race," in which I starred as Debra, a desperate housewife battling her nemesis... action comedy... It was an amazing shoot. Great script, fabulous director and crew, and incredibly talented fellow actors. Can't wait to share that one!
Super exciting news: Carlo and I are thrilled to announce that we are currently filming a short film/ showcase for a TV Pilot of Feature Film called "Near Death." This project was co-written by us and stars Carlo, yours truly, and a few incredible actors: Reed Michael Campbell and Jolie Oliver. Directed by Matteo Saradini, we have an incredible crew including producers Carlos and Gabby Lugo.We have filmed two days so far of this scifi noir thriller, and I am playing LAPD Homicide Detective Katie Larson. Those of you who know me in "real life" (whatever that is) know that I'm a gushy teddy bear... but this is some of my favorite casting: a total badass with action scenes!
Whoa. It's been such an amazing summer!
I had such a blast filming a short film written and directed by Harrison Reishman, with cinematography by Atom Jones, co-starring yours truly, Claudis Bridgeforth, and Marianne Lu. More info on that coming soon!
Our pilot script, "Dark Horizons," won 1st Place in the Script Summit Screenwriting Awards in Las Vegas last week in the TV Pilot division. It was so exciting to attend the Action on film Festival and the Mega Festival! I met amazing people and had a blast.
July was about a lot of writing projects- pitching, writing treatments, etc.... and family stuff. But I *did* take some new headshots with Jesse Saler!
Our pilot script, co-written with Carlo Carere, "Dark Horizons," won the High Scribe Award/ Best Script Award at the Sun Valley Film Festival. The contest was judged by Scot Free Productions' Kevin Walsh.

Our Kickstarter was a SUCCESS! I'll be publishing a blog about the LAST MOMENTS and the HIGH STAKES, dangit, but for now, just know we are SOOOOO grateful. We raised $20,055. That's enough to greenlight a bare bones production of our pilot. We are seeking additional funding to pay Kickstarter fees and add production value, including sound design, costumes, post production, marketing, festival fees and more. You can help here:
