Last week, I had the opportunity to enjoy my last few morsels of vacation with some friends. Getting in a little culture with Bloo at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, wandering around on the east side with Kendra. It was nice to walk around the galleries and get lost on the East Side. It made me realize how busy I had been over the past few months and how much I missed this version of New York. I hope you enjoy the pics!
this is a relatively late post, but hey, better late than never! This weekend was a whirlwind of performances, travel, family time, productivity and friend demanded recovery time. From a fabulous performance at That Bachelorette Show to taking a 6am bus to DC to spend a quick day with my brother and his family to finally nailing down the first weekend of “principal photography” for Shampagne, it was a grand ole time.
Sunday afternoon I was #pooped! But I have recovered for the most part and have a few photos to share
Guys! A few amazing things have happened since August 1st, that I must share with you:
1.) I spent a long weekend in Prattsville, NY for the Rising Circle season-planning retreat. (thanks Adam!)
Captain Kareem, before Cards Against Humanity
Nancy, and her “Tree or Stalin” clue
Pirronne, frolick-ing in the grass.
We got lost. Monet wasn’t happy.
The view from the living room.
2.) I found out that I will be making my Off-Broadway debut this week, in That Bachelorette Show. (eeeeeeeeee!!!!!)
Me and a future cast mate after my preview of the show.
This role is gonna be a BLAST!
3.) I had the first production meeting for my passion project, Shampagne, coming to a laptop/iPad/streaming device near you in 2016.
Rewrites and brunch
So, forgive me for my laziness absence. Life has just been super crazy in the best possible way. All of these events are just fodder for tons of posts and photo collages, diaries, and fun things to come! Consistently and persistently, the plethora of quotes, goals and images on my image board at the top of the year are bearing fruit. Stick with me everybody, with three and a half months left in the year, who knows how far I will go?
Greetings, from heat-wave plagued Harlem! Man, it’s been a little like home these past few days. Even on hot days like these New York still has plenty to offer in terms of free, air-conditioned fun!
Last week, I found myself at both the Metropolitan Museum of Art (amazing Sargent exhibit), and the Studio Museum of Harlem (where the artists in residence had new exhibits up), drinking in the art of classical and contemporary artists alike.
Wandering down Museum Mile and 125th street, I stumbled upon Albertine, a French/English bookstore, and a sidewalk reminder that gave me the push I needed to finish a passion project I have been working on for a few months now.
Maybe it’s because I’m a June baby, maybe it’s because I love summer and heat (to a certain extent) but summer 2015 is pulling out all the stops and I am blissfully chugging along.
July 4th may have been two weeks ago, but you still want to see the pictures don’t ya? Well, here they are for #AboutLastNight! So fortunate to spend the holiday with new and old friends out in Long Island. The host, Brandon, was great and there was good food, good music, and of course fireworks! Enjoy.
Daniel, Glen and me

This week’s Wandering Wednesday features photos of sunsets, friends, and of course city architecture. Starting back with my look up series! Stay tuned for a new page featuring some of my favorites later this month.
PS- Thanks goes out to Kendra for willingly going along with the “photo shoot.”
