is this thing on?

I don’t know if there’s a better time to dust off this space than Day 18 of Quarantine, but who’s counting? I’m going to start by linking to an article/brain dump I wrote for Kingdom of Pavement, titled A Moment in Time: Working from Home and Working Together. I share a lot of cool, at […]

my comedy series: we’re fine

My “big thing” in 2019 was writing, producing, and starring in the comedy series, We’re Fine. My first foray into doing anything other than showing up on set and saying my lines. It has been a lot of work (like, a lot). It has also been immensely rewarding and such a valuable learning experience. The […]

on confidence and owning your truth

A month of unemployment, nice to meet you. For anyone unaware (although I’ve basically been shouting it from the rooftops), I left my full time, “day job” four weeks ago. And for anyone else unaware, the past 2.5 years I worked as an office manager for a firm that was very supportive and flexible of […]

women in television

With the end of the year comes the onslaught of the “awards” films – you know the ones. The movies that are dripping with desperation to be granted the “best (fill in the blank)” accolades. Beautiful costumes, historical scandals, impossible hardships – all the trappings of an Oscar movie. Unfortunately, we’ve had to wait almost […]

create and capture

The beauty of dying mediums will never lose its appeal to me. Letter writing, libraries, mix CDs. I don’t shoot with film often, but boy when I do, I can just feel the magic. The uncertainty of not knowing what moment you captured. The patience until you click the last frame. The surprise of seeing […]

Something I’ve often struggled with is the notion of “trying too hard”. It’s a phrase that is always uttered with a negative connotation. Why? Because trying too hard reeks of desperation. It implies that you are not confident in your work, your sense of self, the knowledge that your successes will be earned, that you […]

sweet summertime : a bucket list

July 6. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that the year is HALF WAY OVER. Because honestly, wasn’t Christmas yesterday? In all seriousness, the months are blowing by. I feel like summer has been in full swing for weeks, and I have yet to do ALL THE SUMMER THINGS. Any reassuring […]

a recommitment to slowing down

A few weeks ago I made my first trip to Illinois. We spent a couple of days in Chicago, but the real purpose of the trip was to attend my husband’s grandmother’s memorial in Putnum, Illinois. His maternal side of the family comes from a long line of corn and soy bean farmers – I’m […]

wedding season and the opposite of things

It’s officially wedding season! Both my husband’s and my cousins all decided to get married this year, and we’re pretty excited about it (one is in Croatia). If you’ve ever planned a wedding, you know just how stressful the time leading up to it, and the day itself, can be. But if all we have […]
