Today I return to my beloved home town and jump straight into the last rehearsals for The Life and Many Deaths of Peter Pan at the Seattle Fringe Festival. I am delighted to be reprising my role as Lady Cynthia Asquith, JM Barrie’s secretary and friend for the last 20 years of his life. AsContinue reading “The Life and Many Deaths of Peter Pan”
…Then I remember that the things that terrify me are the same things that excite me.
It’s been a long time since I wrote on the subject of “owning it,” but I am realizing it will be a reoccurring theme in my life. I first talked about taking ownership of my pursuits(Part 1 & Part 2) back when I came down to LA for my first short-term stint. It was aContinue reading “Own it! (Part 3)”
Almost three months have passed since I completed The 100 Days of Self-Taping. It’s incredible how quickly one can fall out of a habit once the expectations and accountability fall away. I had high hopes of continuing self-taping, if not every day, at least multiple times a week. But I have to admit that, actingContinue reading “The NEXT 100 Days of Self-Taping!”

It is a challenge to commit to making something every day for 100 days. It could be anything, art related or not. This idea got me reallyContinue reading “The 100 Day Project”
Just finished working on my first devised work, “The Boy Who Couldn’t Grow Up”. What an amazing experience! Working with this group of people to tell a story about the tension between childhood imagination and adult relationships was inspiring. It was an incredible journey, from walking into rehearsal the first day with nothing but ourContinue reading “What I learned about life and art from JM Barrie and Peter Pan”
Maybe you’ve noticed. Maybe you haven’t. I haven’t written that many blogs this year. Last spring I was writing one every week. Then I went through a period last Fall where I felt like I didn’t have much to say. In the last few months I have had much to say, but too much goingContinue reading “Working Hard”
A couple weeks ago I became a producer! Ha. I can hardly believe it. As you may have read in one of my previous posts I determined to make 2014 the year of making art with friends. Starting in December I began organizing a movie making weekend with my friends for January 25th. My initialContinue reading “Becoming a Producer!”
