My Clannad Moment

And I am referring to the epic and atmospheric Celtic folk musical group. It is a secret thrill to be among the cast of the forthcoming Chaisson: Quest For Oriud, a high fantasy short film which gives me the Clannad chills–I can’t help it! This Biola University Thesis is being directed by Brian Ulrich and is produced by Kevin Ulrich and Karyn Musch, following up their award-winning claymation film, Chaisson: Rise of the Zered. It shoots early summer in Afton Canyon and one of my favorite places, New Mexico. Let the quest begin!


Tonight I attended the screening of AFI student Tommy Takemoto-Chock’s second cycle short, entitled “Sustain.” I play the piano teacher in this exquisite piece about childhood, memory, and longing.

Upcoming Premiere and Booking

The  premiere of the western short “Blood and Water” will be at the Ojai Theater in Ojai, California on February 18th. And I just booked another delicious AFI short! Details to follow….

Happy Bunny

So on a random whim I recently auditioned for the illustrious Groundlings School. And I got in. And today I had my first class with the madly-skilled Colleen Smith. I am a happy bunny.

More goodness

Did a table read of the sweet feature “Senior Prom,” written by AFI alums Hayden Roush and Ben Mattingly.
