My Adventures in Storytelling

Mini Me

Mini Me

“Tell me a story!” It’s been my request since I was a little girl. I could never get enough stories out of anyone, so it’s not a wonder that I’ve begun telling stories of my own.

I started with comedy for the stage, web, and tv: the funny misadventures of 2 business partners with wacky ideas on how to make their millions, tales of sleepwalking women who get caught up in a crime they have no recollection of, a Wall Street powerhouse/commitment-phobe who leaves it all to find her zen, and 2 childhood friends who try to exploit the American public while conquering the new American dream. My stories have all featured headstrong, successful women making their mark on the world…until now. My newest venture is a dramatic film inspired by true events and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever written. It’s a new adventure. (You can become a part of it here.) 

I love writing about real life because we live it everyday. It’s relatable. But where’s the adventure? All of my stories stem from some version of my own reality, but they find a new path along the way that takes me places I’ve never been and that’s the exciting part. Then, as an actress, I breathe into a character, she comes alive on stage or screen, and she’s real. Somewhere in the world, that same person exists and she’s listening to my stories and smiling.

People always want a good story- it’s part of the human condition. We always want to relate on some level because it makes us feel like we are a part of something bigger and then we are a little less alone in the world. Storytelling is healing, whether it be through laughter or tears. I hope you will laugh and cry with me along the way because I’ve got plenty of stories in me to tell. After all, I’ve been collecting them since I was a little girl.

When you know your purpose, it all comes together

When you’ve figured out why it is you do what you do, everything is easier to execute. When a story hits you over the head with purpose, it becomes bigger than you and gives you the motivation to get up every day and make it happen.

That bright shiny object of a new idea is so much more enticing than working on that old crusty film you’ve had on your drive for a year, but to release it and put it into the world, makes everything feel a bit more tied up in a bow. Then you can move onto your next project fresh and renewed.

Who am I kidding? I don’t have all the answers. I’m feeling my way along just like you are, but maybe that’s the key- to really feel what’s next so it’s in alignment with your purpose.

With “Without Grace,” it was important for me to open up the conversation on mental health and illuminate the caregiver’s journey. Part of my mission is healing and social impact, so if I’m doing those two things, I know I’m doing something right.

What’s your purpose? What’s that thing that gets you up in the morning? Leave your comments below.


Without Grace is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime. Watch it here. Amazon new 3x4

Thrive! via a Mind Body Overhaul

Arianna Huffington’s new venture is all about promoting well-being in order to THRIVE in other areas of your life, thus contributing to the world in a more productive way.

I very much agree. I trained with Leandro Carvalho, Brazil Butt Lift creator (of Beach Body Fame), and trainer to the Victoria’s Secret Models. He reshaped my body and my brain, changing the way I value myself and this inspired me to do the same for others. I assisted him in the Brazil Butt Lift videos, he taught me his methods, and I’ve been personal training ever since that experience in 2009.

AC Fitness and the Mind Body Overhaul Method is my creation to

I customize a program fit to each individual’s needs and sculpt your body in ways you never knew were possible. My unique combination creates that MIND BODY OVERHAULEvery program is also personalized to your preferences and abilities and whether in person, via Facetime, or Skype, I have clients worldwide.

MY CLIENTS HAVE DROPPED 2 DRESS SIZES IN 2 WEEKS and report a happier and calmer daily state of being. One client lost 35 lbs in 4 months, getting back into shape after a setback. I also work with injuries and disabilities on a case by case basis. Feel free to contact me for a COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION at

First session specials and package deals are available because I like to incentivize commitment. Making this commitment to myself allowed me to feel more confident, energetic, and now sparks my creativity everyday in new ways as an actress and filmmaker. Get happy, get healthy, and love yourself enough to put your well-being first!

The Power of Putting Yourself Out There

Slate WGSharing your goal: it’s one of the hardest things to do on a daily basis. You feel greasy, sleazy, braggy- and all of those other negative words that end in Y. But every time I do, I seem to attract more of what I want toward me. The Law of Attraction Strikes Again! (See former blog for reference)

I just returned from vacation- relaxed, rejuvenated, and with a rekindled motivation to work in my new environment (I recently relocated to LA). But my apartment feels like a black hole, a vortex of distractions, an energy succubus. Don’t get me wrong, my amazing balcony has an ocean breeze and is perfect for meditating, but it’s not the best place for me to accomplish my career goals.

So I got out of the house! (Thanks Al Pacino). I made some calls. I worked on getting together with old/new friends and before I knew it, one of them had offered to ask around about my film’s premiere status. Wow! So thoughtful. That may not sound like a lot to some, but in Hollywoodland, you need all the help you can get.

Thus, as I sit to finish the feature I’m dying to make, based on the short I’m trying to sell, I write this because I’m so grateful for good people coming into my life who want to help make my dreams a reality. I hope reading this helps you share your dreams and desires a little more openly, trusting that what you put out there will come back to you, maybe in ways you never even imagined, or better yet, in the scariest of ways, exactly how you imagined.

Grace. I’ve been trying to live my life by the meaning of that word for the past 2 years. But no one has taught me more about living with Grace than my husband these past 2 days. Taking care of a sick parent will do that to you. It can kill you or it can define you. For Tom, I think it makes him the man he is. It makes him the human he is. It brings out the best in him. For others, maybe the worst.

I don’t know how he does it. Bathing, grooming, toileting his father round the clock. He’s an enigma, an example for the rest of us to follow. No one quite knows the pain and turmoil they will experience with the loss of a loved one but my husband knows it all to well. His mother already left him 7 years ago.

I search for Grace everyday. In the clouds, in the world, in meditation, in my writing, in church, in my mind, in my soul, I hope she’s there. Everyday I look, I get closer to finding her. Everyday I search, I find her in my own way. Some may never, some may question, but what I do know is I’ve found her in my husband and I’m grateful that she’s with me. That he’s with me. That God’s with us.
