Celebrations from 2017 and Cheers to 2018!

Wishing you a wonderful 2018 – may this new year be filled with much joy, laughter, good health and your deepest dreams coming true!  As I look back on 2017, I am so grateful for the many memories, opportunities and experiences that this year brought. Here are a few of the highlights:

As an audiobook narrator, 2017 began with much excitement and the tremendous honor of receiving a 2017 Audie Award nomination in the Young Adult Category for The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough, published by Scholastic Audio and produced by Deyan Audio. The year continued at an exhilarating pace with the opportunity to form new relationships with publishers, such as Tantor Media, Brilliance Audio and Recorded Books, along with many wonderful new authors, where I had the joy of narrating a wide variety of fascinating titles.

 

As an actor, three films that I had the pleasure of working on were screened around the world! 96 Souls, a sci-fi feature directed by Stanley Jacobs, in which I play a sympathetic shelter processor, acquired worldwide distribution and began it’s nationwide theatrical release on May 26th beginning at the Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly Hills. Je Suis (i AM) a hard-hitting short film directed by Faith Strongheart made it’s theatrical debut this year at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival where it screened at the short film corner. Magdalene, a 1930s period piece film, directed by Rebecca Cremona, in which I play the lead and title character, screened in Malta this year at the Malta Film Expo!

 

On stage, I had the great joy of playing Regan in William Shakespeare’s King Lear directed by Tony Tanner at the T. U. Theatre. I was also thrilled to perform at UCLA this year as Phedre in Jean Racine’s Phedre directed by Dennis Gersten.

Farewell, 2017! It’s been an amazing year and one that I’m extremely thankful for.

MAGDALENE screens tonight at The Malta Film Expo!

mag newHappy to announce that one of my favorite film projects, MAGDALENE directed by the very talented Rebecca Cremona, will be screening tonight at the Malta Film Expo! This film was incredibly special to me and I’m so thrilled to see that it will be playing to audiences in Malta this evening.

Here is a link to the Times of Malta press release and I’ve also copied a portion of the article below:

“The Malta Film Expo kicks off today for three days of film-related activities at St James Cavalier, Valletta.

Today’s programme includes family short film screenings in the morning, the official inauguration at noon and local short film screenings in the afternoon.

Among today’s highlights is Simshar director Rebecca Cremona’s new film Magdalene. The film is set in 1931 California. Magdalene used to be a concert pianist from a modest background who is now a rich trophy wife who can no longer play. Unable to bear her own betrayal, she takes a dose of poison.”

If you happen to be in Malta, stop by!

Hello 2016 and a toast to 2015

ball-dropWishing everyone a wonderful 2016 – may it be your best year ever!

As I look back on 2015, I am so grateful for the many memories, opportunities and experiences that this year brought.

As an audiobook narrator, the year started with much excitement at being nominated for an Audie Award for Stars: Original Stories Based on the Songs of Janis Ian. I was then extremely honored to be asked to be a presenter at The 20th Annual Audie Awards in New York City. What a magical night that was! Throughout the year, I have had the tremendous pleasure of working with many new publishers and authors, on a wide variety of fascinating titles.

As an actor, I began the year by getting cast in a hard-hitting short film. I performed on stage in several staged play readings at various theatres, finishing off the year by playing Phaedra in Phaedra, a production that ran for 3 weeks in Los Angeles.  96 Souls, a feature film that I was cast in last year, had its first cast and crew screening at the Landmark Theatres in Los Angeles and as the year drew to a close, I signed with an awesome new commercial and theatrical agent.

Farewell, 2015! It’s been an amazing year and one that I’m extremely thankful for.

Thrilled to be a part of this exciting film! Coming soon…in theaters 2016
