HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! It seems like every time I update the news there's a holiday, so I'm either updating too infrequently, or there are an awful lot of holidays...!

We wrapped up "Eight" on Saturday, December 19th to a full house! We ran all eight one-acts and it seemed like everybody felt good about their piece. I thought our performance of The Last Judgment was our best...possibly because of the heightened emotion of it being our last performance...? My co-stars Javier and Bryan were fantastic, and they made it very easy for me to be in the moment. It was a pleasure working with them, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

I participated in a staged reading of Neil Simon's Chapter Two a couple weeks ago, and really enjoyed it. I loved the character of Jennie, and it felt good to do some different material. Apparently it went well enough that we're planning on running it for four Sundays. I will be sure to disclose the details as I get them.

I've made some updates to my website (had to cancel plans to go back to the midwest for Christmas because of a crazy winter storm, so I finally had time to do so!), and created a whole new photo gallery, with pics from my modeling days, photos from various films I've worked on, and a slew of Survivor photos. Those are most flattering photos of me, but it is what it is. It was rough out there! CBS is hosting a big red carpet event in a couple of weeks for all the casts of the past TEN years of Survivor (ten years??!! crazy!), so I'm looking forward to seeing my former tribemates again.

I also changed my video page, so my commercial reel is a little easier to access...I'm still working on getting the footage I need to complete my theatrical reel, but it is in the works!

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas or a Happy Hanukkah (or both, like me!) and my very best wishes for a Happy New Year!!!
