As a part of being a Finalist for The Reel Deal, press releases went out to all of the local newspapers about this exciting opportunity. Seattle’s local paper, the Ballard News-Tribune, contacted me letting me know that they would love to do an interview. Last week, I was able to talk to Christy Wolyniak forContinue reading “Interviewed by the Ballard News-Tribune!”

Training: My Wish List

From that point on, I knew I would be an actor. I pursued theatre all through high school and college, graduating withContinue reading “Own it! (Part 1)”
