It’s no secret I’m a huge geek. Nerd? There are times when I am both! Like in my latest photoshoot with Photos by Jo (and make-up by Coral who wanted me to really dive into my geek branding as I’m now hosting Geektropolis and of course I said “Affirmative. Engage.” and quickly had a panic attack about which shirt to wear – I have SO MANY geeky t-shirts!
Here’s my Brady Bunch set:
And the best Captain America I can do without fully cosplaying it in camos:
Other than that I’m busy making a 10 minute education video for Gibson House Museum explaining the reasons and lead up to the 1837 Rebellion of Upper Canada to use for programming. Should be fun! I love history!
Next up is a super secret project that includes using my whip and fight skills in a short film and then learning a Louisiana accent for another project. This is gonna be an excellent end to 2014!
I have been working with some great people on a not-so-secret project called Cranium Cookie – an education web show that explores all things in Canada! I am the HIstory and Arts Host and I get to delve into amazing Canadian history across our great nation.
It’s no secret I love acting. It should also be known I love a great party. This might be why I love Mary Jane Watson from the Spider-Man comics so much! She happens to be the former AND a smart, witty, red head too. In search of awesome I found that I would love to host a great party once in a while… Thus began The Smashing Trio and I headed the charge for a Villainous Valentines Party at my favourite comic book store.
My friends who helped me out all night (THANK YOU SO MUCH!) were all dressed from the boardgame Clue! I was Miss Scarlett – here’s the whole “Clue Crew” and some pics from the party:
It was fantastic fun! (It was a lot of work!) and you know what? I want to do it again! So this is a sidebar from all the acting – a little glimpse at things that make me smile and things that make me excited: a great party with friends and strangers, who are just friends you haven’t met yet, and great music and fun. I hope we get the chance to do another party soon (well after my shooting dates for the Indie Feature) and that you can come have a “smashing” good time with us!
