Goofin’ Around in L.A.

  Farewell summer!  We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the, umm, actually, it rained in these parts most of the time.  In fact, soggiest on record. So, we finally dried off from summer and here it is, autumn with the nicest weather of the, well, summer.  But, by golly, we did manage some…

Animated & Awarded

I hope things are good on your end and that you’ll have an opportunity for some rest and relaxation this summer.  The blood, sweat and tears of voice over and on-camera demands over the past two months, plus a winter that kept on giving, precipitated a get-out-of-Dodge mode (or Toronto in this case).  So, since I last touched base,…

Swinging into Spring

I trust you survived winter.  It was pretty hard core around the Great Lakes region.  The snow and cold temperatures rivaled the best mother nature threw at us way back in ’39.  Why, by golly, that’s when snowbanks were 12 feet high and we had to tunnel to school through them. Bare footed. You know the deal.  Not…

When asked whether she’d  prefer a little brother or sister she simply replies “NO!”.  This could give a whole new…

Walkin’ & Talkin’

It’s been a while since I dropped you a line. I last sent Christmas greetings and said Happy New Year! Well, I hope 2007 has turned out that way so far. While I’m at it, happy belated Easter, Passover, St. Patrick’s Day and you may have been somewhat festive for Groundhog Day! The reason for…

On Camera / On Stage / On Air

On Camera: I was recently cast as a reporter in a 2-part mini- series, ‘H20 II: The Trojan Horse‘. The production was written, produced by and stars, Canadian actor Paul Gross. Our American friends would know him for portraying a Canadian Mountie on the hit CBS show ‘Due South’. He’s a great guy to work…

Diction-“eh”-ry

Diction-“eh”-ry This past August I had the distinction to work as diction coach on a new TV movie adapted from Margaret Atwood’s novel The Robber Bride which was filming in Toronto. I was contacted by the production company to “Canadianize” the sound of British actress Amanda Root (Jane Eyre), pictured at left on set, and…
