APR 2014: Late 2013 and early 2014 have been spent convalescing from foot surgery, then a shoulder fracture and a torn rotator cuff. I've politely declined the invitation to throw the first ball of the baseball season! Still in physical therapy and moving forward.

JUL 2013: You can see me in an episode of the comedic web sketch Friends of Dorothy at I'm shattered by revelations that my celebrity heartthrobs are all gay! The bit, produced by Malarkey Pictures, has mostly been deemed "Funny!"

JUN 2013: I'm an Associate Producer of the upcoming two-character film, Milo and Annie featuring Harris Doran, (Junction, My Best Day, Sebastien), and Academy Award nominee, Cathy Moriarty (Raging Bull). It is a story of how love gives voice back to a deeply dysfunctional person who hasn't spoken since the age of six. I'm looking forward to audience reaction as it circulates the festivals. Fingers are crossed about further distribution…
