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!
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!
Hello everybody! I hope you’re all doing well and that this year has been treating you better than the last one so far!
So, what’s new?
In January, I had new headshots taken and updated my demo reels again. I noticed that a bunch of new imdb credits have popped up too – please check them out and give my IMDb page a ‘like’ when you have a second!
In February, the dark comedy I wrote, co-directed and acted in, “The Appointment’ was screened during San Diego Filmweek 2017 at MOPA in beautiful Balboa Park. It was a lot of fun to see it on the big screen one more time, hear the laughter in all the right places and take part in the filmmaker Q/A afterwards.
Don’t worry if you missed it – You can still watch my short film for free right here: The Appointment on Vimeo
Then I found out I was nominated for Best Writing in the Narrative Short Film category for the 2017 San Diego Film Awards in April!
I feel honored to be included in such a talented group!
Then at the start of March, I had the opportunity to take part in a ‘Spread the Word to End The Word’ PSA. Watch the short video clip below:

That’s it for now – Be excellent to each other . . . and ROCK ON!
I am happy to announce that my first short film “The Appointment“, which I wrote, produced, acted in, and co-directed with my filmmaker friend Jared Jacobsen, will be screened during San Diego Film Week 2017 in February!!! Congrats again to my cast and crew – so proud!!!
It will be screened as the opener of the film block ‘A Woman’s Place‘ at 8pm on February 13th at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) in beautiful Balboa Park, San Diego, California. I feel very honored to be in the company of such a great lineup of short films, including ‘Holy‘, a music video by singers and LGBT activists Alicia Champion and Danielle LoPresti, directed by San Diego filmmaker Michael Brueggemeyer, in which I helped out as a production assistant.
