Project: Patranila

An inside look, behind the scenes and under the covers.

Hello Lovely! It’s been a little quiet here on The Patranila Project for the last few weeks and I’ve missed you! The final weeks of 2016 were hectic for me in a variety of ways. Some good and some, not so much. I suppose we can all lay claim to a hectic existence at some point in life so I won’t bore you with all the details but suffice it to say, things are back on the slow road to normal.…

Busy in Brooklyn

I’ve been a little absent from the blog for a few days because I’ve had a sudden and welcomed uptick in my day job lately. If you follow me on Instagram or Foursquare, you’ve likely seen one or two pics/check-ins from recent bookings and my audition schedule that has me bouncing all over New York.
