This past week I’ve spent most of my days feeling jet lagged. Staring with tired eyes at back episodes of Top Chef to help me sleep….I realized it was because I had the privilege of directing my first short film Reunion written and starring the talented Jane Cortney, Mac Brydon, and Earle Hugens. Equally produced by Jane Cortney and Mac Brydon, with shout outs to the DP Peter Pavlakis, sound dude Eric Romary, and awesome production assistant Lilly Abedin. I think she’s discovered muscles in her arms that she never knew were there. Forget zumba, I see a future in core training holding lights on boom poles for prolonged periods of time.
Shooting for hours-my internal time clock was permanently stunted at 3am. It was a great experience as seen-
Mac Brydon and Earle Hugens pause to adopt the traditional man lean pose while waiting for their next take.
Pretty sure this was on the closer side of 2am.
And finally the elusive clapboard with my name on it. The weeks leading up to the shoot I was silently terrified of doing something I hadn’t yet ventured to do. I even bought a book and highlighted it like a fourth grade science test.
However, the experience was invigorating and fun. I will continue to try new things-
Except cockroaches covered in chocolate. I’m gonna take a pass on those.
Lords and ladies-prepareth for an icy treat only worthy of the royalty.
Seriously-someone call medieval times so they can open this establishment next door.
I dare you to eat it with your hands.
My new play Nomads will have a reading at The Players Club on Friday, June 10th featuring Deborah Carlson, Keithen Hergott, Casandera Lollar, Amy Northup, Stewart Walker, Jane Cortney + Mac Brydon. If you’re interested in attending message the fine folks of The Lafayette Salon Series.

I am in like with the beauty that is The National Aquarium. The Sharks were a’ plenty and I even pet a jellyfish.
Nothing is quite as satisfying as posing with your entire competitive Skeeball team in the mouth of a Megaladon.
We may have traveled down for The National Skeeball Tourney but let’s be real…..we crushed the aquarium.
Was so fortunate to be a part of this wonderful reading series on Friday, February 5th. They brought bright colors and tremendous energy to My Boy Builds Coffins. Several hat tips to a fantastic group of actors including Michelle Robinson, Stewart Walker, Nora Hummel, Jane Cortney, Mac Brydon, and Erica Knight.
