2018… and the gloves are off!

Hi everybody, it’s been a while! Whoa, time sure flies! I was gonna post something before the end of 2017 but…alas..didn’t get around to it.

So, Goodbye 2017, it’s been a very up and down year…


….but it ended on a great note for me, doing some ADR for a feature film ‘The Samuel Project‘ (dir. Marc Fusco).  I got to see it at a private screening and promise you’re gonna love it!


Helloooo 2018!

I hope you started the new year with bells on and are ready to kick ass in 2018! I sure am and the gloves are off!

I saw this art by Sarah Andersen the other day and it really speaks from my heart:


Thank you Sarah, you nailed it!


So, I’ve been practicing a little:

I got a feeling this year’s gonna be a bumpy ride on this planet (on so many levels) and I’m already aware of some personal challenges ahead this year, but I have a plan. It’s good to have a plan…

Ok, off to hit the ground running. Toodles!





German Currents Film Festival 6.0

Last weekend was my 6th year volunteering for the German Currents Film Festival in San Diego. As usual, lots of fun and people, great films, good food and drink were had!

I took the crowd/mingling and celebrity Q/A photos which you can see on the festival FB page here.

48hr Madness

Yup, did it again…participated in the San Diego 48hr Film Project 2016. WHY??? Because #TeamBadMF asked me and you don’t say NO to them, haha! Feeling honored to be part of the team again after the fantastic success of their entry from last year! (you can refresh your memory via my blog entry about ‘Crowd Sorcery’ from 2015)


The genre we drew was ‘sports’ so I give you three guesses which one we’re featuring in ‘The NBL’…

We’re in Group B and the screening will be Tuesday, September 6th at 9pm. Oh yes, hilarity will ensue, guaranteed! You can still get tickets here.

I plan on updating this blog after the screening with pics and hopefully winning announcements!

See ya on the red carpet!

UPDATE September 16th:

We won 1st place Audience Choice at the first screening round and eventually ‘The NBL’ made it to the “Best of 48”! Woot!
