You may have found your way here because of my acting work, my web video productions, or any number of other random reasons. At any rate, welcome to my website! This is the central hub of my internet life, so feel free to browse around, find more about me, then add me to your internet world! I’m active on any number of social networking sites, especially Twitter, and Google+ so just click the links on the bottom of this homepage to reach my various profiles!
If you’re interested in seeing some of my acting work streaming on the internet, you can start with my reel. For full length works, I suggest you start with “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”, Joss Whedon’s hit Internet Musical, then check out the web show I created called “The Guild”. For my complete resume information, please go to my IMDB or Wikipedia entries.
And before you leave, please stop by my blog! I muse about working in Hollywood, producing web video, video games, and bad fantasy cover-art among other random topics. I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
I was inspired by this article to write a bit more on the blog here, because it touches on a lot of what I’ve encountered personally lately.
I have heard comments like those referred to in this article about women with short hair SO MUCH in the last few months since I cut mine, mostly on YouTube, the home of 12-18 year olds.
