Been a while...
I've lived in five different places since February, in three different cities. Settling in NY at least until Sept 2010, goshdarnit. Gotta say, though, that Hong Kong is looking MIGHTY enticing...
FACT/SF In May, I toured the state of California dancing guerilla-style in public spaces (read: all 173 Walmarts in the state) with the San Francisco-based company, FACT/SF, under the artistic direction of Charles Slender for Part II of the Consumption Series. For more informa...Read more
Closed "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels", in which I played the dirty, rotten Christine Colgate in March 2009.

Guest artist for FACT/SF with Charles Slender in May 2009.
Anita in West Side Story. July 2009.
Dance tour to Sarajevo, Bosnia. October 2009.
Since the last time here, I've been hired full-time permanently at Rhode Island Hospital as an administrative assistant to the Director of the Cancer Center. It pays the bills and at least it's in the healthcare world. It's been helpful to see how things work behind the scenes. And I generally like administrative work - it's not challenging enough for my brain, but it'll do for now. I'd like to have a job where I can do administrative work AND use my brain for something interesting like nutrition or food science or moveme...Read more
The debut performance of Sally Bowles!
I've been very fortunate to have found theater right away here in Rhode Island... I will be playing the role of Ms. Sally Bowles in Cabaret this November for the Center Stage Players. I am attaching the flyer for a look-see. Even though most of you won't be able to see it, I thought I would post about it because I've been working very hard on it, this is a role I've always wanted to play, and it's fun to share :) In fact, I don't think I know anyone on alivenotdead he...Read more
Back in the USofA. Sure enough, isn't Hong Kong. I have to watch my back a little more closely, find medical insurance, fund auto insurance, and pay nearly $5/gallon for gas...and find a DD or pay a taxi through my nose if I want to go out.
But I'm kickin' in California this summer, back in the place where this devil was born. Aside from the fires and the aforementioned realities, it's been beautiful. A very good start to the path of health recovery. I haven't coughed in weeks! And I'm sleeping and eating goo...Read more
So most of you know that I'm going to be leaving Hong Kong for a little while. Not sure when I'll be back, if I'll be back. It's hard for me to be leaving but it's something that I have to do right now.
In the meantime, I have a couple of shows that are happening before I go. One is a reprise of the Madonna Tribute that Bob took awesome pictures of (see photo section). If you missed it, check it out - it's a fun show. Flyer is attached.
The other show is a play called POPC...Read more
I was in Singapore this last weekend for a swing dance camp, hosted by Jitterbugs Swingapore. It was AWESOME. Singapore is hot and humid. The man-made island of Sentosa is beautiful but sadly a tourist location.
I HUNG OUT WITH FRANKIE MANNING! He has an autobiography that I think is worth checking out called, "Frankie Manning: Ambassador of Lindy Hop"
Anyone know how to upload videos from files on the computer as opposed to links from online?
...for five hours. We prevail through fire alarms! Excellent times.

So I'll be in a music video shoot this weekend for the piece "Half A Girl" by Ben Robinson. Should be a lot of fun. Everyone involved is very cool :)
I've attached the poster (designed by Ben Robinson) for your pleasure. Will update when the video becomes available for viewing!
