Also, I'm a Hufflepuff. The Sorting Hat said so.
In my grad class, we decided that if you got your MFA in Acting, that meant you were a Jedi. My classmates tried to tell me that I was a Sith. I am unconvinced.
ENFJ-A, if you're curious. (Only 2% of the population. I'm a rarity!)
If you like my profile, I'm flattered! (But I likely can't see who you are when you do it, so just send me a brief message! I'd be happy to chat!)
I love to teach Acting (that's what my MFA is in) and the goal I'm working towards to is to be a full-time professor of Theatre at a college/university and also continue my professional acting and directing career.
Also, in my time as a performer, I've had to do a lot of dialects. Like, a lot. Examples: Northern Irish, Southern Irish, American South, British RP, Australian, Austrian, Russian, Scottish, and Swahili. Yes, Swahili. I'm not saying that I can speak all of those languages, but I am saying that I can speak to you in English with one of those accents. So, that's a skill.
In my last year at graduate school, I conceived, crafted, produced, and directed a piece of devised Theatre. It was called "The Honesty Project: FAU," and it was based on anonymous answers to a questionnaire that I developed. Taking the responses, I made a script out of them, added a band to provide some live musical accompaniment, asked friends to provide some choreography, and cast the show. It was really well-received and got a professional production in a local Florida fringe festival the following summer. That's probably the most fulfilling project I've ever taken on, from beginning to end. So, after reading that, whatever that indicates to you I'm good at, that's what I'm good at.
Here's a YouTube link to it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6ETWdR4HxM
Movies: All of Christopher Nolan's movies, especially Memento; Stanley Kubrick's movies, Lincoln was amazingly good, and so was Argo. The Godfather films of course, Pan's Labyrinth. MST3K!
Shows (to me this means Theatre): Waiting for Godot, Red Herring (this is the show I wrote my MFA Thesis on), all of Shakespeare, The Clearing, Rounding Third, Too Much Bathwater Makes the Baby Go Blind by the Neo-Futurists
Music: The Who, REM, Mumford & Sons, Fun., Florence + The Machine, other random songs that I think are good when I listen to them.
Food: I am a holder of minority opinions on food. I don't like coffee, cinnamon, and pickles. Anything else I'll give a fair shot.
I promise, if you write me, I'll reply in complete sentences and with proper grammar! Send me a message!
No drama please. I love my job, but it is very challenging. I have no mental space to devote to drama.
