I wanted to take this time to say thank you to everyone who supported me this year. Whether you attended one of my shows, helped with resources or were one of the 3,500 people wolrd-wide who viewed my blog I could not have achieved all that I have this year without you.
2011 was my most successful professional year to date and I am thankful beyond words for the many opportunities I have had, and artists I have collaborated with. From Passing Strange, my first network television experience on the Playboy Club, to the most difficult dramatic role I have played to date in Educating Rita I have been challenged every step of the way.
I have learned a lot about the business of making art and the amount of sacrifice it takes to transform dreams into reality. The journey of an artist is long and unique to everyone. There is no absolute right or wrong way to go about your career and it is essential that in 2012 as you strive for your goals you give yourself the love and support you deserve.
Moving forward there will be a lot of announcements and changes to the site so stay tuned. As always I remain dedicated to entertaining you and sharing my art. May your 2012 be prosperous and challenging.
Special thanks to:
Bailiwick Chicago, Shattered Globe, Broadway in Chicago, Gray Talent Group, Alter Media, One World Productions, JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, Janna Giacoppo Photography, PR Casting, Claire Simon Casting, Melissa Foster- Boresi, Richard Corley, my wonderful friends and ever patient family.
