I recently went to New York to compete in the 33rd Annual Seido Anniversary Tournament and here are some pictures:

I won 2nd Place in Brown Belt Kata
Kumite - I was fighting an Advanced Brown Belt
I won 2nd Place in Combined Brown Belt and Advanced Brown Belt Kumite
Before I left for the tournament, I passed my wushu test for Level 9 Southern Fist. I think my next level will be focused on jumping and poses. I'm not a natural at jumping, but hopefully I'll learn a lot!
The industry has been slow lately, but I've been lucky to do well in the few auditions that I get. I had a co-star audition recently for the new show Trauma, and I got on pin for it, which meant that it was down to me and another woman for the role! ^_^ After waiting for four days, my agent told me that I was released and that they were probably going to cut the role. To me it's okay that I didn't book the role because I know I gave a really strong audition. In the breakdown, they wanted someone older, but I made strong choices with my take on the character, and I'm proud of my work. :)
Have you seen the Intel 'Oops' ad? The one where the Intel engineer drops the world's smallest chip? Well I shot also shot that commercial, but for a spot only running in Asia. Here it is:
Some photo and video updates:
My fighting set for my Lvl 8 wushu promotion (my partner's brother recorded it for us ^_^):
Some photos from the project I worked with Dion Beebe, DP who won an Oscar for "Memoirs of a Geisha":

The set was this awesome abandoned warehouse
Me with Jennifer, another one of the girls
Taking some improv shots while waiting to be called to set
I changed into my street clothes for lunch and then asked the photographer if he could take some pics of me doing some kicks :)
I had a dead scene when Kramer Morgenthau was the DP the next day.
Having fun draping over random places during breaks.
I've fallen and I can't get up!
The movie was so awful it killed me!
