Suiting-up for Work

I hope you had a chance to enjoy those summer months/weeks/days.   Alas, *blink* GONE! We were lucky to embark on an August road trip to Canada’s beautiful east coast, including whale-watching, Sea-doo-ing, sea-fooding & sight-seeing. And plenty of driving: over 4,500 km (2800 miles) in 2 weeks – through Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward…

VO Acting – From Screams to Screens

After coming off a winter that was one wicked slice of the ice age for epic snow, cold, wind, e-t-t-t-cetera, I’m here to report my newsletter-typing digits have sufficiently thawed due to how HOT these featured voice-over items were.  Ok, really warm.  Would you believe…tepid?
