The ANSWER to your QUESTION...

For those asking what happened the other day, my peeps got a call from GREY’S ANATOMY about me coming back to shoot another episode. I was literally packed and on my way to the airport when I got the call cancelling. Yes, I was bummed, but I’m VERY happy to know that I'm still on the GREY'S ANATOMY radar! :D…

Keep praying for me ya’ll!

I’m still holding out hope that 2010 will be MY year!

This Dream vs. My Reality...

Film Audition - SEPTEMBER MORNING - 8/25/10
VO Audition - WALMART - 9/9/10

Yes, it's true, now that I'm back at a fulltime day job, I often daydream about the days in which I had the freedom to spend quality time with my kids, be creative at will, workout on the regular, and network with other creative people; but, the reality of the matter is, which I don't think a lot of people realize, is that even though you've seen me, or any other actor for that matter, on television or the big screen doesn't mean we're set for life. Nope, not by any means! Lol. We still have to bust our behinds on the daily just like everyone else, which in most cases, is a REALLY tricky balancing act. That fact makes me so grateful for folks like Ken Osmond aka Eddie Haskell. This week, his actions, have helped soooo many of us actors. I applaud him. Read more here.

A few weeks ago (8/24 and 8/25), I drove myself up to the beautiful city of Los Alamos, NM to shoot the LANL industrial I booked earlier this summer. My calltime was 8am on both days, which meant I had to be ready and out the door by 6am each day. What a wonderful treat it was to have that time to chat with family on the East Coast, watch the sun rise, and soak up the beautiful scenery around me. It was very zen-like. Since things are quite top secret at LANL, I'm not sure if I'll get to see copy of the footage, yet alone share it with the world, but here is a photo I was allowed to take with some fellow actors and LANL employees. We had a lot of fun! :)...

In other news:
  • The book agent I'd been emailing back and forth passed on my Children's Book Series. (Yes, I'm writing too. Lol.) It's okay though. Can anyone say self publish?!? One day soon, hopefully.
  • In Germany, FRIENDSHIP! was realeased on DVD on 9/9. It should be out here in the U.S. around Christmas, with screenings slated in Los Angeles and New Mexico between now and then. I'll be sure to post more information about the screenings when I get it.
  • If you're in the Norfolk, VA area, we'd really appreciate your support of QUEEN VICTORIA'S WEDDING! It will also be screening soon. Details below:

    Mid-Atlantic Black Film Festival
    Crispus Attucks Cultural Center
    Norfolk, VA
    Early October 2010. Specific dates and times to come!

  • I'm excited to report that this year, I'll be working for the first time as a youth Drama Coach. It's at my church, and we'll be working towards a performance in Spring of 2011. It should be a fun challenge for me. :)...
  • I've been approached by someone who'd like to start a Fan Club for me. I'm flattered to say the least. I'll update you all when I get a link.

I think that's just about all I have to report for now. I have a couple of events coming up in October, so be on the lookout for some updates from me then. By the way, for those who are interested, I'm available to make appearances and things of that nature across the U.S., so if you'd like more information on booking me for something, please send an email to: SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY PLEASE!

As always, thanks for checking in! :)...
