Reach Out and Take It!

Opportunity,
Steal every chance you get!
Waiting is pointless.

Audition

The excitement of a potential job,
Reading through the script, making choices and preparing a character,
Running lines over and over, until you have it in your body,
Picking out the right clothes to convey the part,
Signing in and waiting in the lobby with twenty other guys that look JUST like you,
The awkward small talk in the casting office–then you slate your name and the scene begins and before you know it, your done…
Walk out feeling confident, you gave it your all and rocked it out!
Then, you wait.  You try to forget about it.  Every time it pops into your head you think, “Wouldn’t that be awesome?”  
But you let it go, and wait for the next audition.


Red-Eye

Relentless tossing;
Wide awake and craving sleep!
Sunny day, no rest.

Savory goodness;
Toasted “everything” heaven.

Sundays In LA

It’s rare when I get to enjoy a Sunday morning at home with my family.  
Usually I’m waking up in a hotel bed in a random city across the country; getting ready to spend my day in a theatre.
So I’m taking advantage of this elusive day:
Breakfast in bed,
Walking to Starbucks with the puppies,
Hike in the Hollywood Hills,
Pooltime,
Dinner with friends,
and finally a late night movie in bed!
Full circle.
I love Sundays in LA.



I LOVE an #80sMovie #DanceSequence! #CantBuyMeLove #AfricanAnteaterDance starring the magnificent #TinaCaspary #Dancers #Google her! #dancenote #dancelife #dancemoms #dancebook #soyouwanttobeadancer #choreographeverywhere #dancecompetitions #theglamorouslife #wellness #health #sytycd #aldc #nosickle #balance #pointe #jazz #musicaltheatre #Broadway #movies


The Glamorous Life on Tour…

The delight of sleeping in my own bed is second only to the love I receive from my partner and our puppies!
It’s not that I don’t enjoy life on the road-I just HATE hotel beds.
#SleepIsNecessary 


Random Thought at an Airport

The more I fly, the more I realize people are so F_C#KING annoying!
