How I Roll: Promo to announce my new Website & BLOG!!!

WOO HOO! (did I just say WOO HOO in my first blog?!?!? *snort* well I NEVER said I wasn't a dork!) I can't thank my FABULOUS Director Mike Kallio enough! I'm absolutely tickled pink over this. I am also EXTREMELY grateful for my BFF, partner in crime & my FIERCE Animator Shannon Pope. I'm just grateful for everything we have been through & these are the people I have to Co-Pilot with me on this helluva ride!

How I Roll: My First Blog!!!!

WOW... to think of all those hours I wasted on Facebook & MySpace posting up what I had for dinner when I could have had a rocking Blog by now. You live & you learn. Well I'm 33 years old & last year while on a 3 week pilgrimage to Vegas (will explain this in another blog) I discovered that I wanted to do Next Food Network Star. 

When I came back home & told a friend, he said he's a Director he has access to equipment we should just shoot a pilot ourselves.... CRAZY TALK! So now it's been 7 months of blood, sweet, tears, TWO Director's, long distance animation, 3 line Producers, Adult acne, fluctuating 10 lbs that comes & goes & an INSANE amount of delicious food & cocktails.. I have my entire life in a bag... a Tiffany bag (but a bag nonetheless) FULL of my demos to shop.

SO far I got an incredible response from people who have seen it & I feel blessed... but the peanut gallery of Producers & Industry Insiders who have all these problems with it but no solutions has me wanting to bang my head against the wall... but like my extremely SEXY & brilliant President says "Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. 

It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. it's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere". So now armed with a blog I motor to make my dream a reality!
