guest blogs, collaboration, and tickets to things

I wrote a guest blog for my friend-and-fellow-screenwriter Katie Markovich‘s blog! It was written with the assistance of five-year-old Jessy.

Talking about some pretty cool future collaborations with artist David Mitchell (a.k.a., DAVID DEATH), so you should go ahead and check out the rest of his work in the meantime.

Tickets are now available for my 2nd Story performance here (Thurs & Fri, May 7 + 8) and for the Chicago One-Minute Play Festival here (Wed & Thurs, April 29 + 30).

And related to nothing, here’s a photo Chad Eschman took of me in 2013 when I was auditioning for hipster of the year:


holiday sounds

Night Lights killed. Photos coming soon.

In the meantime, you can feel like you were there (or relive the experience, if you were there) by checking out our party playlist.

Also, want to hear some weird songs co-written and partially performed by me? Including a Christmas song?  Sure you do. You have a heart. Go to my friend Stacie’s soundcloud page.

Although I must admit, the best song on there is Vegetarian, which I only helped with by being Stacie’s first vegetarian friend.

Theatre Collectives! Reviews! Breakfast!

When I’m not making dumb videos, here are some other things I do:

I am part of a new theatre collective called the Living Room Playmakers. We just did Three Stories, three plays that went up in a Rogers Park estate earlier this month, and I will be producing Last Call: 7 Rounds of Theatre in a bar in a Lakeview loft on May 17th & 18th, directed by Jess McLeod. I’m also writing a new short play called Prodigals for that evening. Go to our website! It has pictures and everything.

I am also one-half of Shorties Review Chicago, a two-woman review machine that does one-sentence reviews of art, theatre, live music, film, and the occasional sandwich. If you live in Chicago, we can help you find out what’s good, fast. If you live elsewhere, you will only enjoy it if you like anything.

Did you know that I am also Co-chair of The What Is Breakfast Committee? If you are wondering if what you are eating is Breakfast, our experts are here to help.

So, stop by these sites and be sure to say, “Hello, Jessy!” And I will say, “Hello, you!”
