Appearing on NBC's New Amsterdam 

Airing April 6th 2021

So grateful to have booked work during the Pandemic (and my first legit TV gig). Great cast, great crew. I had one little line on this show and they treated me like a king. Are Tyler Labine and Daniel Dae Kim the nicest people in the business?? I'm just saying it's possible.

Reaches 45K

Honestly, I have found TikTok to be a great way to share jokes during the pandemic, and not a single commenter has been shitty about my gender identity!
