It’s been a wonderful summer thus far: my girlfriend and I spent ten days in Alaska, recharging ourselves on nearly-endless day light, great seafood, and outdoor adventures such as hiking up the Exit Glacier trail to the Harding Ice Field, kayaking a backcountry lake, and whale watching.
Now I’m mostly back to work, starting rehearsals soon for PROTEST, by Vàclac Havel, in a production for The Alliance for New Music-Theatre and the Czech Embassy. I’m also making a two week trip out to Portland, OR, for a number of auditions arranged for me by my wonderful Portland agency, Ryan Artists, for national episodic series being shot in Portland as well as in Washington state. And this reminds me: I’ve recently decided to join SAG/AFTRA, for which I’ve been eligible for some time. I’ve been gratified by non-union work but… it’s time.
I’m also happily at work on my PADI Dive Master Certification, which will allow me to lead certified divers on dives, as well as teach a few specialty courses.
Needless to say, I like to stay busy.
