September is about planting seeds: lots of self tape auditions, Chris Campbell's fantastic acting class, working on my one-woman show (currently called Mise-en-Scène Seule or MESS) and of course, Split Valley is coming soon… Grow seeds, grow!
The last few months I've been building my one-woman show with the incomparable Michael Hicks... and we just finished working through the first draft😳 Lots more work to do, but I'm feeling pretty proud and extremely grateful😊

Every spring I direct seventh graders in a play. This year the school assumed we'd need to cancel it due to quarantine. But the show must go on! And we turned Our Town into a radio play with slides of old photos from turn-of-the-century New Hampshire. It was a huge undertaking and a beautiful result, underscoring the resilience and ingenuity of this wonderful community.
I recorded a couple songs for friends and family… gradually getting used to my "at home" set up:)
This lovely short film I shot last year is getting into a bunch of festivals!
