A FEW OF THE RECENT MILESTONES ALONG THE WAY
American Permanent Resident
ITS OFFICIAL!!! 2019 marks the approval of my Greencard!! I am now an American Permanent Resident! I cannot wait to jump in and become a deeper part of the film & tv industry and make substantial contributions to help tell stories and change narratives and inspire others. Welcome to the new chapter 🙂
Callback for The Crown, Netflix
Amazing things come to those who don’t give up and put the hard work in. It was a wonderful confirmation that the work you deliver is at the high quality you delivered it to be. I was invited by the team over at The Crown, Netflix, to submit for them again (aka callback) for their incredible series.
Back across the pond I go. Its time to head down under to Australia, to complete the paperwork and submit my Greencard application. If approved, I will become an American Permanent Resident. Fingers crossed we get the winning result. This quick little process should only take… oh about 12months. ha-ha
Attended my 1st Student Academy Awards
Wow – that’s the feeling of attending my first ever Student Academy Awards! The incredible new talent that we have emerging in our film schools is extraordinary. The stories they have to share and the inspiring words they offer is going to change our landscape and bring amazing new visions to life. I cannot wait to work with them.
TV HOST: MALIBU WINE SAFARI – LIFESTYLE EPISODE
Stanley the Giraffe needed no introduction on this week’s episode. This guy is just so famous; in fact, you can see him on the Hollywood blockbuster ‘The Hangover’. Lucky for me we got to share a nice piece of lettuce and had some good giraffe laughs without a hangover the next day.
In Production – Landing in LA
TV HOST: ‘THE TASTE’ LA FOODIE EPISODE
THE TASTE on Paramount Lot – the annual foodie event kicked off with a delicious array of food from restaurants and street food trucks in Los Angeles. I had such a delicious time filming a travel episode on The Taste LA, the day after I arrived in the country. I was well fed, met lots of amazing food creators, had great fun and it helped keep my Jet Lag at bay.
First jump across the pond after being granted the elusive 01 VISA!! Touch down in LOS ANGELES
Guest Speaker – Women in Tech and the Arts
Bringing to light a career in STEM and the Arts. I was invited to speak at a conference (for female high school students) about my dual career in technology and the creative arts. I spoke and encouraged them to follow all their dreams and how you don’t have to choose just one path to be a success. I encouraged them to really lean into their natural gifts, especially if they are blessed to have two.
01 VISA APPROVED!!
IT’S OFFICIAL!!! I have been approved. The 01 Visa, for Extraordinary Talent, is one of the hardest visas in the world to get. I have put in many years of hard work to achieve a level of excellence, that the USA immigration and SAG-AFTRA deem notable. With 400 pages of my work in my package, the visa was approved within 10 days of being submitted. What a delightful feeling to achieve a big goal. I can now begin my international chapter in the creative arts.
Aussie Periscope Girl launches! (travel series)
Australia’s newest live streaming travel series has launched, taking experimental OTT content creation to the next level. I created the world’s first ever live streaming series produced entirely on an iPhone from periscope live streaming footage. All filming, editing, voice over and post production was done on a mobile device.
