Divine Mercy: Prayer through Pain

I think I’ve mentioned before about how I go about writing my blog posts. Because spoiler alert…it’s unconventional. I literally sit down, and ask the Holy Spirit to write my post for me. And then, it’s like the words just kinda flow. But recently, there’s been a topic that has been put on my heart toContinue reading Divine Mercy: Prayer through Pain

Brussels Sprouts Pesto Pasta!

Hey Y’all! So guess what! I’m shooting a commercial today in the city! Pretty exciting 🙂 Here’s a secret though: the food on set, is typically not the greatest. Unless it’s for a network, the food available is typically along the lines of pizza. Which is great – but not for someone who is GlutenContinue reading Brussels Sprouts Pesto Pasta!

The Generation that Killed Romance

Our generation is going to go down as the generation that killed romance. Among other things. But the death of chivalry and courtship will be our legacy. And I blame one thing: Dating Apps. Ugh. Bumble. Tinder. The League. Hinge. Coffee Meets Bagel. OKCupid. Online dating is a close to 2 billion dollar industry. As they say, there’sContinue reading The Generation that Killed Romance

TV Morality

Confession: I like watching TV commercials. Partly because I’m an actor and I do a lot of commercials, and so it’s kinda like homework to see what the commercial “trends” are. Some of these trends include: making dads and men seem like dopes or incompetent, ethnically ambiguous “heroes,” the switching of normal gender roles, andContinue reading TV Morality

Light up the Sky

New week, new city! I’m back in Ohio this week. I had a callback for a film this morning. The casting director, writers and producers flew in from LA, so fingers crossed on the project! I’m not going to front: last week, I was in a very strange head space. I found myself, almost resenting this blog. Monday’sContinue reading Light up the Sky

A Local’s Guide to NYC

I wore shorts today, for the first time this year. Hallelujah! It’s finally spring! And you know what that means…just like my winter-pale gams, pretty soon the tourists will be coming out of hibernation and visiting NYC. I love my city.

The Truth about Age & Eating Disorders

I need to be honest with you about something. Come clean, if you will… I joined a gym. Now I know, that may not seem like a big deal or anything, but when it comes to recovery from anorexia, the gym is one of those…treacherous areas. Since I have been fully recovered, I haven’t belongedContinue reading The Truth about Age & Eating Disorders
