Hi NYDAC! Since COVID-19 hit NYC, I made it a point to use my down-time as means to keep myself engaged, and others entertained. To date, I’ve made 64 videos, averaging 1 minute in length for my Instagram account. The videos feature me and my Number 2, also played by me, and focus on a wide range of personal experiences I’ve had during this small apocalypse. In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, I most recently created the Gettin’ Help series, paralleling my real life experiences seeking psychiatric support. I hope something in this little portfolio resonates with you, and helps get you through these exquisitely bizarre times.
