In Which I'm Teaching a Class, and There Might Be Some Pie

Happy Almost August everyone! And to those who love the fall as much as I do, happy Almost Nearly End of August as well.

I’ve admittedly spent the day thinking about the impending autumn…I’ve always loved everything the season tends to bring with it: the colors, the layers, the mystery, the metaphor, the pie. Perhaps my favorite aspect of autumn, though, is the sense of focus and momentum that returns every September, a holdover from the days when September meant returning to my role as a student.

I’ve got some big plans for that focus this year, and look forward to making something out of that momentum. To kick things off, and to get into the ‘back to school’ spirit, I’m teaching an Animation Voiceover Workshop for Kids in NYC! We’ll be meeting at John Marshall Media in Midtown on September 16th, 5pm-8pm to work on creating characters, honing microphone and audition techniques, interpreting sides, and getting rid of any and all self-consciousness so our voices can fly. Open to ages 8 to 12.

I can’t wait to get seriously silly with you all…so please feel free to share far and wide with all the tiny cartoon lovers in your life.

Here’s to a future of focus and pie,

A Place, Then, For Questions

There are 

many things I’ve yet to know,

And places that I’ve yet to go,

But here’s a place to sit, 

and so,

I’ll christen it my Thoughtful Spot —

where No One Needs to Know the Lot —

It’s just a seat for questions sought,

Uninterested in answers.
