New York Fashion Week, Backstage Magazine, and a Six-String Siren

It’s been a crazy few days.
Ever since I launched the website, steam has picked up three-fold.  I booked a fashion week show, got a feature in Backstage magazine, and booked a great gig on Royal Pains as the guitar player for a great band.
Life is swell…

I booked a gig modeling for a photoshop instructional textbook on color correction (finally! It had to be made for gals like me).  Thanks to photographer extraodinaire, Sasha Nialla.

Kidear Youmans Fall Fiction Fashion Show was a riot.  Going off at the Gallery Bar in the east village, the place was packed and had tons of paparazzi. What a fantastic experience, all around!  I’d forgotten just how thrilling it is to walk down a runway.

This week I am featured on the “Backpage: The Working Actor by Jackie Apodaca” in BACKSTAGE Magazine.   I couldn’t be happier.  The article is about the age old question (for me, anyhow):   Should I anglicize my name to get more work?  Send comments and read the article here: Satu in the Backstage Article

For the past two days (and two more next week) I have been performing as a guitar player in a band for USA’s hit medical dramedy “Royal Pains.”  It’s been a great experience so far, and the band and I are having a blast.  My top-secret alternate dream career is to be a raging guitar player for a prog-rock band.  This is pretty close to that wish, only it’s electro dance rock (Syracuse’s Ra Ra Riot).  Pictures coming soon.

I will be rounding out next week with a few meetings at some top modeling agencies here in New York…steam is definitely picking up.
