Simmering in Seattle

It’s been an interesting summer. For the last few months I feel like I’ve been preparing for something big, without knowing when or how it would happen. I’d get my hopes up, only to be disappointed… again. That is the nature of the business though, right? (I’ve said this before). When you’re in the middle of it though, it can easily feel like not a lot is happening or it’s all going wrong; it’s only in retrospect that we can see all those tiny steps added up to a meaningful journey(at least that’s the way I choose to look at it). Here’s a bit of that journey over the last few months.

I participated in the very first Green Lake Play Series! Such fun to be a part of stories inspired by this Seattle landmark. Keep an eye out for further development of this production!

I filmed on the set of Force Play, a new feature film by Honey Toad Studio, the same company that brought you Wrecked.

Waiting for "Action!" with the baby on-set for #forceplay. @honeytoad #filminwa #bts #actorslife

I worked behind the scenes with Mighty Tripod Productions’ film on the Seattle 48 Hour Film Project 2014.

I got to do the whole back-lit, windblown look on a short film I did with a few friends of mine in August.

Continued my trek through reading all of Shakespeare’s works. (Sooooo close to the end!)

A couple weeks of life, death, marriage, recovery. Now back to Shakespeare.
