Show Me, Don’t Tell Me


tumblr_md87o5ecdb1r5inhvo1_500

For so long I’ve been told “show don’t tell”, and all I want to do is talk these days.

Living in this age where you have to capture life as it’s coming right at you is exhausting. Even with a camera in hand I sometimes find myself not wanting to film a thing while I am enjoying the moment. Maybe it’s just me, maybe I’m not ready to prove that I was there every single time. Some moments are just meant to be between you and I. Everyone doesn’t need to know everything.

I am talking about embarrassing things I did when I was thirteen, my scars, and those silly little thoughts that can’t be put on display. Can we make a memory if no one else knows that it happened?

I am more than I seem, and so are you. For so long I’ve been told “show don’t tell”, and all I want to do is talk these days.

MoPals Commercial


Here’s a commercial for MoPals (a business loyalty platform/app) I had the pleasure of working on with a few friends. My friends and I are some of the cafe’s customers. I thought I posted it last weekend, but I guess forgot. 🙂

5 Years With WordPress


Where did the time go?

Where did the time go?

5 Years, ladies and gents! I’ve been writing about life, love, laughter and the random thoughts that pop into my wandering mind for 5 years (on WordPress). First off, thank each and every one of you for reading, commenting, emailing, and befriending me over the years. Knowing that someone gets what I’m putting down or even that they have questions about it is really encouraging.

1443994325454I had to step away for a moment to make way for other experiences, and I realized that it’s been a while since I’ve written about the ins and outs of my life, so here goes. As some of you may or may not know I have been doing Background Acting (aka an Extra) for a while now, and things have picked up. I have been able to travel to cool venues, meet awesome people and to tip toe into the world of film and television that I’ve always loved. Now my Mother gets to me see as a Lawyer, Police Officer, Doctor and a plethora of other things. But more importantly she gets to see me being happy.

At some point I realized that I wasn’t happy doing what I was doing, I was stressed and “creatively bankrupt”. I feel alive more than ever these days, and it’s because of a shift I had to make. Sure things didn’t always work out, but I learned and grew. When I was younger I was afraid to try and fail at things, now that irrational fear has been washed away, allowing me to simply try.

14421656598781For about the past 4 months I have been pursuing Voice Acting. I have always been curious about Voice-Over Artists and being able to give a voice to something. So I finally told myself that I had nothing to lose, only something to gain by giving this a try. I picked up some books like Voice-Over, Voice Actor by Yuri Lowenthal & Tara Platt, a Blue Spark Digital Microphone and some other equipment as I went along. I auditioned for a couple audio, original animation, fan dub, and video game projects. I have had the pleasure of laying down vocals for a few projects, some I can’t talk about yet, but there is one that I can and will mention in detail in another post.

I say all of that to say this. In the 5 years that I have been with you guys & girls on WordPress, I have gone through various transitions in life. From a 9 to 5 office job to Background Acting, from being single to being lost in love and back to being (happily) single.

My readers, my friends, you saved me. I only hope that at some point I was able to save you as well. Whether I made you smile, laugh, or aroused (it’s a possibility), I am glad that you let me into your life, even if it was just for a minute. Being able to connect with someone is a blessing and a privilege.

Here's to 5 years!!!!!
