Hi hello yes – I’m here! I do exist!

I’ve just been working v. v. hard at my “muggle job” and haven’t had much to update this blog with, especially theatre-wise. (I hope to remedy that very soon; fingers crossed.)

But there is one thing I’ve been remiss in posting about – namely, that I was the lucky recipient of an inaugural High Street Award.

As you may recall (or if not, please to look one blog posting below), earlier this year I had the distinct pleasure of assistant directing a production of “SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN” at the High Street Arts Center in Moorpark, CA. My main job as AD was to produce, direct, and edit the several “movies-with-the-musical” that are seen throughout the show. (I’ve uploaded a couple of them to YouTube; watch ‘em here and here.) Well, back in August, HSAC held their very first High Street Awards -- voted on by the theatre’s Season Ticket holders, honoring the work produced for the theatre during the 2017-2018 Season. Unbeknownst to me, the powers-that-be at HSAC decided to honor me with their own award for “Special Contributions to a Production.” I was completely surprised, and also extremely thankful for the lovely recognition.

Anyhoo, I hope everyone is taking good care of themselves in this strange, strange world we currently live in.

So glad fall is here, and that the holidays are on the way – I could use a little bit of cheer …

Hi reader(s)! I am fully aware that I've been MIA for many, many months -- blame not only finishing up the show I spoke of in my last entry ("YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN" at Conejo Players Theatre), but also working the big D23 Expo 2017 in July '17, then gigging as an Assistant Director (and short film director!) for High Street Arts Center's production of "SINGIN' IN THE RAIN" -- which started rehearsals right around the holidays ... plus the holidays themselves ... then "SINGIN'" actually opening in February (and doing quite well) ... plus the usual craziness at work ... You'll just have to forgive my absence, and trust that if something truly extraordinary happens, I'll be back here to let you know! ;)

Actually, on that note, I can report with glad tidings that I was finally made full-time at work -- yay, cheaper health insurance! -- about 2 months ago now. Nothing big to announce on the theatrical front, but I hope that changes as we head into Summer '18.

"Onwards and upwards, I always says." And reach out if you have any questions, comments, gig/representation offers, etc. I'd be ever so glad to hear from ya.
