Keep going

This week has been an extreme case of battling so many issues to go into it here would run into reams and reams so suffice to say this past week has seen me challenged on several fronts. One of the things that has kept me going has been an comment from a fan of the […]



So this months theme is about keeping all the balls in the air or for me I had that serious image of holding the reigns of 6 horses as I stand and drive a Roman chariot. Well this week I think my lesson has to be that I still have to take care of myself. […]


Runaway horse

So the thing I have been worried about for years happened this past week. I lost my job. I’m a freelancer but have been fortunate to have had a pretty steady writing and VO gig with some TV shows which have suddenly and without warning left the studio where I was working. I felt immediately […]

This entails making phone calls, reaching out to friends of friends, strangers and basically coming up with a network strategy of how […]


An Inspired Life

The definition of the word inspire is ‘to make someone want to do something’. We use the word so liberally, I’m not sure what I thought it meant but for some reason this definition seemed a little basic and a little limiting. I really believe we get what we need and sometimes before we even […]



This month our theme is inspiration. I feel that I’ve had the incredible fortune to have had a mega inspiring week. First off I was in a cabin with my producing partner Holly for 2 days up a mountain to break the back of the pitch for our show. It was a challenging mind acrobatically […]


Usually at this time of year I can teeter into feeling a little blue. Post christmas with family and visiting friends in London coming back to my apartment in Los Angeles without a clear plan of how to achieve what I want to achieve this year can cause me to feel overwhelmed and a little […]
