Raymond, and my on-screen family.

It’s been shaping up to be a solid year of booking gigs. The audition-to-booking ratio has been positive lately and I feel like that kid in the candy store who actually gets to take home what he points at. I’ve been tackling auditions differently this year. I’ve shifted my attitude towards auditioning to something closer…

Officially Twenty Six Years Young!

It’s been years since I’ve actually thrown a party for my birthday.  The photo to the right was probably the last one I remember having where I was relatively carefree.  In fact, I remember stressing out about which toppings to have on the pizza we were going to order!  It seems trite to engage in…

60% versus 100%

Quick entry: So after an interesting (actually not so much) CALL BACK to Noises Off, I walked back to SJ Rep deep in thought and analytical assessment. There have been a handful of times when I’ve walked away from an audition where I feel absolutely serene. That’s not to say that I landed the role…

The Grass is Greener…

…when you’re busy watering them. Right? Acting is easy. Acting believable is a challenge. I realize I spend a lot of energy every day just scrutinizing how I approach different aspects of acting. Sometimes I think I think too much, which can be a hazard to believable acting. But I’ll spare you the boring “la…

Selection, not Rejection

Well, today I received word that I was not cast in Picasso at Lapin Agile. A friend told me a few times, we’ll call him…Brent, “It’s usually the shows you want to be in the most that you’ll probably won’t be cast in”. Haha, how true! While the feeling of rejection feels dominant, I have…

The case for space…

…rehearsal space that is. A few of my rehearsals for Pandemonium were moved to the actual space we will be using for the show. It was a bag of mixed emotions. At first it was excitement. Then I spent an entire rehearsal a bit lost. Then it at the next rehearsal I was more comfortable….

Frisky Business

What an amusing week! In addition to my usual banter on blogger, I’m going to add “A week in Public Transportation” and it will include waiting for the bus/train, the actual rides and things that have stood out, and of course all the interesting characters that seem to make every morning, afternoon and evening trip…

Of rehearsals and gigs

Rehearsals for Pandemonium are rolling along well. I’m off-book about two weeks ahead of schedule so I’m feeling OK with everything. Everyone seems to be doing really well also, I’m excited to see this show when it’s ready to go. In my scene in particular, I tossed and turned for a few nights trying to…

Oh man, it’s March already!

I missed Cinequest entirely last year and that was probably because I wasn’t feeling like I was in the right place, physically and mentally. This year, however, I’ve treated myself to indulging in all sorts of short and feature films and an incredibly touching and tear jerking documentary called, “Dear Zachery”. But I’m getting ahead…

T.G.I.F Indeed!

I wasn’t planning on blogging today but I feel I should put this down on paper…cyber paper? Whatever. I had a midterm for my film and t.v. this morning so I was up bright and early so I could buy a scantron and blue book. I made it on campus early enough to have a…
