  • Summertime & spontaneous living!

    Summer has come and is almost gone. Mine included laughter, a combi of work & relaxation,  super hot weather and spontaneity!   It started out with laughter at the 25 year celebration performance  of Boom Chicago at Carre' Theatre, Amsterdam with a red carpet double header starring Seth Meyers and Boom Chicago & friends.  It was a wonderful night and I am so glad I got to go and support my insanely talented friends Michael Diederich, Rob AndristPlourde  ...  Read More >

  • Short Film, Friendship, Mother & Daughter!

    This past weekend, I flew to Italy to play the role of Lady in the short film CONFESSION written and directed by the up and coming Giacomo Gili.   The story follows two very different women:  The nun, played by the incredible Bethan Cullinane, and the prostitute, played by myself.  They meet through unexpected circumstance and an intimate emotional bond is built between them, thus bringing them closer together and helping them both. Everything about this weekend was amazing; ...  Read More >

  • Yes, Faith, Luck & Gratitude!

  • International and at home

    It's a small world after all... I bought a world atlas book for my daughter recently on her fourth Birthday.   It's meant for her age group but I find it pretty darned cool and truly enjoy sharing adventures of world travel and the idea of future adventures as well.   Read More >
