May 2013 in Photography

Just when I thought April came and went without a peep, May seemed to whiz by with even more turbo. Only after reviewing the photos I’ve taken during the month did I realize why that was. It was choke full of activities both on the work front, and in the various passionate endeavors I engaged…

City Light’s Spring Shorts

I’m back on the saddle again –at least where stage readings are concerned. Thanks to Cara Phipps and Jeffrey Lo for offering me the opportunity to spend a night at the theater… I read stage directions for two playwrights this evening, Margy Kahn and Lisa Kang (The Devil’s in the Details and Faith, respectively). They…

Adding venture to Square Marden

Richard and I spent the day exercising our imaginations. If you don’t already know who Richard is, he’s a good friend of mine I met through an audition he posted on Craigslist. Long story short, we’ve been buds since that faithful meeting (2006). We’re currently co-founders (2 of 4) to a media production company called…

Carnage on a Tuesday

I spent a great deal of my day in two places I absolutely love: Theatre and coffee shops. Every so often I’m involved in helping in improv workshops with (most of the time) youth. I’m a member of the San Jose Repertory Theatre’s Red Ladder Company, which is a major part of their Outreach department….

Voices were scene.

March has been full of surprises that I knew were there. Wait, before you say, “That doesn’t even make sense!”, hear me out. I had a rough idea of what was going to be happening in March -activities, deadlines, film festivals, but I was surprised at the emotions that have been following me through the…

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…

Cinequest is back (2009)!

Weird. I thought I blogged about my Cinequest experiences from last year but I realized I actually wrote it in a journal and NOT online! Well, this year, it’s going to this blog. For those that are unfamiliar with it, Cinequest is a widely known Film Festival based in the Silicon Valley. The organization utilize…

Cheers with Peers

Due to the nature of my career path, I’m always mixed with an assortment of people. They say networking is one of the most important aspects of an actor’s job but to what degree? How aggressive should the networking be? I’d like to think that you should only push far enough that you’re not putting…

Ideas

It’s probably safe to assume that every one of you have had ideas come to you in the least opportune time. It sucks, right? Especially when there’s no paper to write that on or no one is answering your phone calls. Anyway, I haven’t been in a very creative mood lately but the other day…

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…
