Ongoing Recording Sessions w/ WiFi Total Radio

Performance, WiFi Total Radio, Writing

Thursday nights have been the typical nights for recording segments of the upcoming WiFi Total Radio podcast. I feel I’ve been *very* supportive in recruiting new voice talent to the cause, but tonight I think my cohort and the “brain” behind the project was just a bit too excited about our fresh meat and their contribution.

I felt a bit under-appreciated.

What better way to soothe the burn than with a traditional blog-post/whine.

My Role in Elizabeth Gunness

Film, Performance

From 2002-2004 I worked as an actor at the Warehouse Theatre in Greenville, South Carolina. At that time, they had a company of young actors called “journeymen” who were paid  a monthly stipend to audition for and play a variety of roles throughout the season, crew shows, and teach week-long Shakespeare residencies in the public school system. Great idea… now defunct for a number of years due to changing administration.

It was a valuable transition for me between an undergraduate education in Art and my later graduate studies in Acting. Just before I left for the PTTP at the University of Delaware in 2004, I acted in an independent film shot in and around Greenville entitled Elizabeth Gunness.

Below is a reel of some of my scenes from the film. I was a somewhat “slow” handyman named Stan who eventually is done in by the protagonist.

A Chinese-Inspired Playhouse

Artwork, Design, Theatre

Playhouse-1

I graduated from Wheaton College in 1999 with a BA in Studio Arts and immediately began grad school for Acting at the University of Missouri – Kansas City. After half a year, I realized I wasn’t ready for school quite yet and left, returning to the Chicago area and working as the Technical Director at my undergraduate theatre among other things.

During that time, I also built a playhouse for my first director and his wife, who had just adopted their first daughter from China.

WiFi Total Radio Demo

Performance, WiFi Total Radio, Writing

Since my return to the US this past March, I’ve been doing some scriptwriting and voice work for a friend’s pet project. The friend is a TV personality here in North Carolina, and the project is a parody of talk radio which will be streamed online later this year. Recording and producing for the first season is about 85% complete.

Below is a sample of some of his earlier recordings, before I was involved, but you can get an idea of the theme and content.

My Work w/ Three Post.

Directing, Performance, Three Post, Writing

A friend of mine from high school is the co-owner of a relatively new and relatively terrific production company based in Raleigh, North Carolina. While in Sydney over the past few years, I wrote a number of commercial scripts for them; some samples are included in my Linkedin portfolio.

One series of three videos we collaborated on was done for the Raleigh News & Observer. I wrote the first two scripts (Raw Talent & The Birdbrain Politician) while in Sydney, and then directed and managed a cameo appearance in the third (Troubled Water) when I returned to the US for a time in the new year. See if you can spot me.

 

 

 

 

I also pitched them a parody to submit for the Doritos Crash the Superbowl contest this year, which they produced.
