Family Bond

Our family bond helped us with a grueling two day custody trial to keep our darling niece, Soleil under Mom's custody. Toni, Vincent, Erin, Hawk and myself all testified on how well Soleil is doing under Mom's care and how we are Soleil's family. It was a very tiring and trying time. We all broke down in tears when the judge came through for us. Having the family all together was bittersweet. We had a great time, but also a grueling time. Everyone went home now, although Erin is staying a couple of extra days to spend with her sister. Yesterday, we relaxed on the beach. Back to work for me today with a workshop this afternoon and a night shoot tonight. Vincent was a trooper signing almost 150 autographs and pictures for people that worked in the courthouse. He is such a nice movie star. lol! Not to mention a great bro. Always here for his family. Well, back to work, now. Have a great day!

Acting Workshop, August 28th

Well, I was heartbroken over the Laboratory Theater of Florida not willing to contract me for Virginia Woolf, but I'm over it now. I will just move on to more experienced professional theater companies or maybe somehow get back into film down here or television. Not much in this area, although Miami has Burn Notice and The Glades. I am currently still directing the Karaoke mocumentary and also coaching and teaching classes. For those of you in this area, I have a workshop coming up on August 28th at the SBDAC from 1-5pm. I always look forward to meeting and working with new people. It's only $99. and a chance to work on your auditions. We will be doing cold readings and monologue study. So, come learn how to put your best ability as an actor forward.
Hope to see you there

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf

Hi all,

I have some very disappointing news. I may not be able to play Martha in Virginia Woolf, because I am a professional Union Actor and this is community theater. The board of the Laboratory Theater of Florida voted against an Equity production or bringing me in on a Special Appearance contract unless I can get sponsors to put up the money. Please let me know if any of you know of somebody that may be interested in Sponsoring my work. I have worked very hard already on the role and it is disappointing that I will not be able to utilize my craft. We may postpone the production to later on in the season or may replace it altogether. Please email me if your interested or know someone that might be at

Thanks for being there,

Now back to me!

Life about me is not as exciting as it is for my brother, but I manage to keep very busy. Right now, I am still directing the film, "The Secret Lives of Karaoke Junkies", finished up classes with little ones for JRP, holding class in Naples on Thursday evenings, and working on the character, Martha from, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf". Oh yeah, and of course spending time with my hubby and pup on this beautiful beach I reside on. We don't have riches, but we do have love. We both work very hard to make a buck. He much more than I. Life can sometimes be frightening and other times so rewarding. Cars break down, rent is hard to come up with each month, bills, bills, bills, but we still plug along knowing that we have more than many do these days. Thank god for this lovely beach. It's free to enjoy. So, whenever you get bogged down with financial worries, just go find a lovely spot of nature to enjoy. You will see how rich you really are.
