They liked me, they really liked me!

i get the giggles when i get good news

It's always a little thrilling to get a good review for your work.  I'm very grateful for this nice mention by the Hoboken Patch for the dual roles I played in Hudson Shakespeare Company's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream back in June and July.

Homework


caught me doing some inner character work assigned by my new acting coach - who is kicking my ass, by the way.  she's straight-up, no joke.  i cried on the first day...  sounds weird, but she's EXACTLY what i need for my confidence; i'm breaking through my barriers now!

Becoming Shameless

from a recent photoshoot

I love reading about entrepreneurs because they energize me; and building your acting career is much like being an entrepreneur building a new company...  The other day, I watched "The Mentor" on Bloomberg TV and one crucial piece of advice given was "Be shameless about advancing your business".  That hit home because I know I've held myself back by being a little too shy, thinking modesty was classier.  Truth is it's the squeaky wheel that gets oiled!  Shameless self-promotion is necessary when if you want to advance your career.  So here goes!  I'm booking my own photoshoots, doing my own PR, reaching out to decision-makers more directly....  I'm getting shameless!

There's a little garden in Clinton Hill (Brooklyn) where a sweet old man named Mr. Prince has been growing all kinds of fruits and veggies to feed hungry neighbors with for 40 years.  This is real community activism.  Thank you, Mr. Prince.  If only every neighborhood had this kind of real food pantry....
