What a crazy year it's been! There has been a lot of down time, an added third survival job, not to mention the ever-tumultuous political scene infusing every single day. It's easy during the day-to-day to lose sight of some of the exciting career moments that made this the second year in a row with some pretty great milestones. So, without further ado, the top ten successes of 2017.
- Completed first voiceover demo
- Two incredible photo shoots with the impeccable and amazing Tyler Core which brought me some of the best photos I've ever had.
- My earnings last year qualified me for the SAG-AFTRA Insurance plan.
- Made some exciting new connections which have served as both good networking and great inspiration.
- SAG-AFTRA DIY workshop demonstrated that I have more tools at my disposal to complete some of my smaller projects, which have now moved into development.
- First hand modeling gig
- Started the year on stage with "Diary of a Worm..."
- Debuted with an original musical which included a cast recording.
- By the same composer, last year's cast recording "PEN" is now available for purchase online.
- And the top accomplishment of 2017: Booking my first co-star role on a network television show. I was Hotel Manager #2 on "Chicago PD" this season.
So, despite the "resistance" that can creep into the brain during times of calm in one's career, 2017 was definitely a success. I look forward to what new steps I can take in 2018. Happy New Year!
