Transparent, Amazon (background)

On December 11 , 2015, Season 2 of Transparent was released on Amazon Prime. In episode 8 Oscilate,  I was a background performer in a yoga class at The LGBT Center doing sun salutations alongside Alexandra Billings. 

In the scene, Maura Pfefferman (Jeffrey Tambor) who is at an interview for a suicide hotline, looks into the window of a the class and spots Davina (Alexandra Billings), her best trans friend, who she’s been feuding with.

While this wasn’t my biggest career move, it was still super exciting to be a very small part of smart groundbreaking TV and I met some amazing people on set that day, including Wyatt Gray, Dale Guy Madison, and Krystal Shelley.
