So here's the big night, it's opening for My Fair Lady at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse! I'm so blessed to be a part of this amazing cast, crew, and theatre and can't wait to get an audience in here to see this! The show is absolutely beautiful (it would be, it's designed by Ithaca College alum and all around brilliant designer David Arsenault) and the performances are stunning. Kim Burns as Eliza Doolittle is a force to be reckoned with, and Will Erat (Broadway's Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and Catch Me If You Can) gives a completely fresh, and new interpretation to Henry Higgins which is sure to leave you all breathless. If you are in the upstate NY area, this is not a show you want to miss. For more info, visit the official website for the production and buy some tickets!

If you do come out to see the show, let me know!
My best to everyone!
This past week, the Ithaca Shakespeare Company opened Love Hurts, their 2012 summer season. This season features 'Romeo and Juliet' and 'Taming of the Shrew' performed in repertory.
I was the fight director on both productions alongside Nick Shuhan, and I can tell you they're both fantastic! Do be sure to go see them out at the Cornell Plantations, and support great local theatre! Shows are Thursday - Sunday at 6pm. For the schedule of which show is which night, please visit www.ithacashakespeare.org
Well here we are, it's July 9th, which means I've been graduated for almost 7 weeks now. It's amazing how good I feel with my 7 week post-college life, because a TON has happened. To recap, since graduating from Ithaca College I have:
Whew, that's a lot to handle in 3 months. I am so blessed to have had these opportunities immediately post college. It's so easy sometimes to look at those who are just as fortunate as I and say, "what are they doing that I'm not?" but that's foolish. I am a gainfully employed actor and fight director in a variety of shows and companies. I have been very blessed to be surrounded by talented, hard-working people, and to be given such support by my friends and family.

I find myself hilarious, and I use this blog to stroke my own ego. Thanks for indulging me.
