Adults (on paper) come clean about being lost...

Hey! Exciting new development in my creative life, guys!!!!...

I was recently interviewed about my experience applying to grad school, writing this blog and being a 30-something for a podcast called "Dirty 30 Something."

Here's a 3-minute YouTube Dirty30Something Podcast Teaser of what their show is like, just to give you a taste...So awesome!!!!

***Warning: This podcast is uncensored and appropriate for adult audiences only. (18+)***

If you're interested in listening to the episode(s) that I'm on, you'll hear...

  • some of the inside scoop about the creation of this blog 
  • some of the not-so-predictable residual lessons I learned while NOT getting accepted to grad school...again and again and again
  • fun/embarrassing stories from my younger days

All in my own words...(hardly knew what was coming out of my mouth during the interview, but it was fun, fun, fun.)

Hope you guys enjoy it. If you do...leave your comments below! If you don't...weeellll, then just keep it to yourself. ;-)

Thanks to all of YOU for following along this journey with me.

Though grad school has not turned out to be my path, I truly believe (and have to keep reminding myself) that my creative path is unfolding just as it should.

Who knows what fantastic opportunity or challenge awaits us just around the corner!?

And if there's anything I can do to help you out with anything on your creative journey, please send me an email and let me know. (And for those of you applying for acting grad schools...Shhhhh! Now I'm available for PRIVATES...private coaching, that is.)

Wishing you creative growth on your own terms in your own time.


P.S. Special thanks to Nick and Marissa for having me on the Dirty30Something podcast!

Do you love these two as much as I do? If so...

The CA Family Play #8: Trust

Our greatest collaborators are often our greatest friends.

This California Family Play is really happening!!!!

Matt Steiner, Stan Richardson and I had a meeting at MexiQ over some tacos and margaritas to discuss our experience of the research trip last month.

We all batted around our different perspectives and perceptions of our time there. That's what I LOVE about working with your friends, ya know? You can just feel free to be totally open and say whatever you feel...because you trust each other. There's a solid foundation of love and mutual respect.

Collaborative JOY!!!!!

I am so lucky to be working on this project with these guys and I can't wait to share it with YOU in the winter when we produce the actual PLAY.

I am terrified and exhilarated at the thought.

Thank you to all of my AMAZING family members were so welcoming, open and willing to participate by opening up their hearts and sharing their memories, thoughts and experiences with us.

Especially these brothers...Kevin, Steven and David (who is also the illustrator of this cartoon portrait.)


Can't wait to introduce you all to my family. I will keep you posted as more developments happen with the play and as soon as performance details are solidified.

Fun, right?
