Coming from Connections

When I first decided to that I wanted to take that big leap and move to NYC at the end of 2013, one thing scared the crap out of me: I thought I knew absolutely no one in this city. Because of that teensy-tiny little fact, I was a little worried about telling people my plans. I was jumping from a place I grew up with friends and family to a [...]

A 9/11 Tribute: Light Shining Through...

IMG_5918-0.JPG
What was once so tall, so majestic… Standing as the towers to bridge the gaps on Earth. To the pile of rubble, of souls lost, caught in the crossfire of terrorism. To a beautiful cascade of purity, where you can witness the souls of those who perished in the walking water trails around a square–a square where a tower used to stand [...]

Seeing Once

IMG_5894-0.JPG
“Once” was quite possibly the most unique and engaging theatre experience I’ve ever had. Also, quite possibly, one of the most wonderful productions I’ve seen. It was a completely random choice today to go see “Once.” Had a fun audition this morning and had a nasty itch to go see something afterward. An h [...]

Just Try

Well, I guess I’m in New York. Wait. Rewind. Remove the guess. I’m most definitely in New York City. Here to conquer the world of theatre, musicality and stage–one audition at a time! Muahahahahaha! Okay, I don’t think evil Disney villain voice really suits me. At least I can say I tried? Trying is basically what this [...]

Facing My Fears

Moving to New York doesn’t scare me. What scares me is that I’m also diving head first into being an entrepreneur, aka: working for myself, as a side gig. Why am I diving into being my own boss?  Because auditions and sometimes productions don’t work well with a 9-to-5 job. I don’t want to be stuck behind a desk while [...]

Acting Out

It was a sunny day, and the girls closest to my age were playing in the front yard. A new, older, very attractive man from South America was living with our babysitter at the time. He picked up little 7-year-old me from the driveway, and asked me my name (though I wish I could remember his name now). “Sandy Duncan!” I piped bright [...]

Here I Come

Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens.But I know what I’m needing,And I don’t want to waste more time. The perfect time to run [...]

20 Lessons from Sinus Surgery

I didn't learn I'm Batman unfortunately.
The beginning of July was also the beginning of a better nose for Miss Mikael. I learned a couple of months ago that I had a horribly deviated septum, so I signed right up to get it corrected as I also had chronic sinusitis and some breathing issues. When I told the doc I was a singer, he said it would be a “night and day difference. [...]

Keep Going

When I decided to take the Holiday Council with Molly Mahar last winter, I wasn’t sure how much I would get out of it. I built up a plan, developed goals and an idea of what I’d like to do in 2014. Now that half the year is gone, I wanted to see what had changed or stayed the same. One thing from the program still stands out to me [...]
