A still from one of my practice self-tapes this month. I set this goal as part of my monthly Career Accountability Group to shoot two practice self-tapes per month. So far, so good.

Monthly Career Accountability Group Check-In for February/March 2023

So, I'm part of a Career Accountability Group. Basically, it's a group of actors that come together monthly to hold themselves and each other accountable to doing the business and career work that is easy to ignore, neglect, or otherwise put off. Each member has a partner in the group, and partners check in with each other weekly. The group meets monthly to discuss our accomplishments for the previous month, share goals for the upcoming month, talk about news, share resources, and ask questions. Honestly, I find it absolutely invaluable.

My DIY No-Stain Washable Fake Blood Recipe!

As anyone who dabbles in theatrical effects knows, cheap stage blood is very unforgiving and will stain your skin and clothes if you look at it the wrong way, whereas most commercially available bottles of "washable fabric-safe fake blood" come in tiny bottles that are prohibitively expensive. So, how do we keep the cleaning budget from ballooning out of control? By making it ourselves using my tried and true, super-sexy, fabric-safe, no-stain washable stage blood recipe, that's how!

Today, the #EmersonMafia took over the #WGAstrike picket line at @nbcuniversal, and it was an impressive turn out.

I had a blast meeting new fellow alumni, reconnecting with old friends (some I hadn't seen since graduation!), and catching up with faculty members that came out to support!

I wish I'd gotten more pictures, but I'm glad I grabbed this one! Always great to see @melindavalente and @ledaroca from @emerson_la. So grateful for your support!

Also, huge thanks to @thejudalina, @liz.alper, and @noellevinas for coordinating efforts both on the line and with the new school administration! Awesome job! I'm ready to march alongside y'all for another 500 miles, and maybe 500 more if that's what it takes. Let's go!
