Feast or Famine

"Break" by J. Stephen Brantley, directed by Jonathan Warman and featuring Hunter Gilmore and myself had wrapped three weeks ago. As in any theatrical venture, this project brought together a group of disparate artists who work together and usually become very close and tight; like a temporary family. We traveled with this show to Provincetown, RI and also enjoyed an exciting run in New York as part of the EATFest with Emerging Artists Theatre. The role was a challenge and my partner, Hunter, was a blast to work with. So, when it all came to an end, it left me with an empty feeling of mourning.

I was going on auditions, but three weeks passed and I still hadn't gotten anything further than a callback for "The East Village Chronicles" at Metropolitan Playhouse.

Memorial Day Weekend.

Within a 24 hour period I heard from Roberto Cambeiro that I was invited to participate in a short play festival at Wings Theatre, I was offered a part in Duncan Pflaster's Intern…

This is a crazy business

I got a call from my agent booking me on a job on Long Island. I hadn't auditioned for it. They booked me based on my headshot and resume. She didn't give me much information, just the time and day, the amount I was going to be paid and that the wardrobe stylist would contact me. Fine. That's what agents are great for. Jobs out of the ether.

So, the stylist called, and we agreed that I would bring four different combinations of business casual clothing but I was warned to stay away from green. (TRANSLATION: I'll be working in front of a green screen)

I made a slight stink about not being reimbursed for my travel since I had to take a Long Island Rail Road from Penn Station to Islip and then take a cab to the location of the shoot. It's customary to be reimbursed in these situations. But I eventually let the issue slide, thinking, "what the heck. I didn't have to audition, it's basically like I'm doing the job for $50 less than I was original…


So. My web designer (or, more accurately, web re-designer) James Donegan suggested I start a blog. I guess he thinks -- as you all clearly do -- that the world desperately needs to know what I'm up to every minute of every day. My thoughts. My opinions. My world views.
Or perhaps you just want to point and laugh. 
Either way, you're here, and that's what counts!
I will do my best in the days and weeks to come to keep things current. Often, this page will serve as my "what's up now" page -- so that I can get things online in a hurry without having to go into making edits on the site "proper."
Be sure to comment a lot, too. That way, I don't feel like I'm writing to the ether. 
And enjoy!
