Getting the work out there

Happy New Year! I am back from a great trip east to New York visiting my mother. It included a trip to NYC where John and I met with several friends and had the great pleasure of seeing Other Desert Cities by Jon Robin Baitz at the historic Booth Theater on Broadway. What a great show. Stockard Channing, Stacy Keach, Rachel Griffith (in her Broadway debut), Judith Light, and Thomas Sadoski are an amazing ensemble.

Working on my classes at Sol Acting Academy, working on a short screen play, and doing some rewrites on The Bark & The Tree. I gave it to some friends in NYC who are solo performers themselves. Looking forward to their feedback. Also taking a great class with Leslie Becker -- she's fantastic... My favorite quote so far: What's holding you back from you dreams? The only reason you haven't done them yet... is because you haven't DONE IT YET. Everything else is story you tell yourself.

And here's some excitement! My reel is up on YouTube with clips from Breaking Bad, In Plain Sight, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Cyphers, The Incredible Voyage of Captain Hook and Mind Games.There is much to be said for self promotion. What I am discovering is that, while I may have told people that I have been on these shows... it doesn't sink in until they see it on screen. Several folks have commented on my FB page that they have seen all these pieces and didn't realize that it was me! So here it is to alleviate doubt and hopefully, attract more work!

Happy watching and have a blessed day!
