Getting Dropped

WHAT A WEEK!!! Monday I started #The100DayProject with 100 days of self-taping. Tuesday I hosted/produced/acted in a reading of Stimson Snead’s female driven Sci-Fi/Action script The Dogs, which is now up on The Blacklist. Thursday I got new headshots along with my husband, taken by one of my favorite photographers…. Oh yeah, and I gotContinue reading “Getting Dropped”

Working Hard

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”

Own it! (Part 1)

If it follows you wherever you go, just embrace it! (…or call the police!) The first time I acted in a full length play, it was Shakespeare and I was ten years old. From that point on, I knew I would be an actor. I pursued theatre all through high school and college, graduating withContinue reading “Own it! (Part 1)”
