It is almost fall. I have always loved this season in Seattle. Maybe it’s the cool. Or the changing colors of the leaves. I don’t really even mind the rain. And, I do love football. Especially the Seattle Seahawks.

Things have slowed down a bit on the acting front, and while my summer had me playing one of the best roles of my career (read about it now), lately I have been auditioning, but not landing. Well, that is not entirely true – I have two projects (three, really) that are coming up, but I can’t really talk about them openly…yet. Besides, in this game, it’s kind like that saying, “Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched.” – I don’t really like talking about projects too much until they are in the can, because things can go sideways on the way to the editing room. Heck, sometimes I even find myself watching my work and wondering, “Hey, what happened to that one scene…” Anyhow, I am not complaining, mind you, just filling you in a bit.

I am thrilled to report that our production company, Mighty Tripod Productions, has filled two sessions of Camera 2 this fall, and our students are terrific. What we – myself, Angela DiMarco, and Tony Doupe’ –  have built over the past year is nothing short of extraordinary. Our education division has produced 7 five week courses, multiple weekend workshops for youth and adults, and this past summer we hosted casting director Paul Weber from Los Angeles.

Also happening this fall – lots of training! I am taking a workshop this weekend on The Method with David Lee Strasberg at the SIFF Center, and in October, Angela and I travel to Los Angeles to take a workshop with one of our favorite coaches, Steven Anderson. While we are in LA, I plan to scour the town for leads on auditions and workshops, as I hope to make larger inroads into that industry as time progresses.

Thanks for taking the time to read, enjoy the season, and GO SEAHAWKS!
