Two Years in Hollywood

It’s been two years since I pulled into Brian and Rachel’s driveway in Thousand Oaks and officially arrived in California. My high school friend, his wife and their two kiddos graciously housed Uncle Rob for three weeks while I searched for accommodations in LA. Reminder – I still have their kitchen table and two red wooden chairs. I should probably give those back at some point.

A lot has happened in two years. I have an agent. I’ve taken a shit ton of classes. I’ve secured more freelance public relations clients to cover the bills. And now I have a five year vision and a checklist of things I need to do each month/week. I’m currently executing Dallas Travers’ Actor’s Business Blueprint, which I’d recommend.

Special thanks to Rob Adler, AdlerImprov, for ongoing coaching, guidance, support and friendship. You have made the transition to LA infinitely smoother and more enjoyable.

Special thanks to Rogue Improv. I get to do some improv comedy every Monday night and I’ve met some great new friends.

Special thanks Vine Auto Center for keeping my Corolla in fine operating condition to get to auditions and class. Which reminds me – I’m due for an oil change.

I visited Chicago in early October. Friends and family often ask if I’ll ever move back. I doubt it. I’m in this for the long haul.
