OFFICIAL BIO EXCERPT
Over the years I have come to believe that our thoughts determine our actions and our actions determine our results. The six phrases I have listed above are the thoughts that I go back to over and over again, especially when times are tough or I feel like I’m losing my way. In my experience dreams are the goals that our subconscious mind is directing us to achieve. Believing in yourself is the necessary courage that it takes to pursue those goals. Often the dreams that we have involve doing something that you love. Whatever that is, it should be a part of your life, whether it is a profession or just a hobby. No matter what you do, there will be trials and tribulations that can overwhelm, but the focus on having fun no matter what the circumstances, is good for your brain and good for everyone else around you. I also believe that doing something for someone other than yourself and giving back to the community will reap rewards far beyond what you give. Finally, if it is important to you, then never give up. Life is all about the journey and the satisfaction of knowing that you never quit on yourself.
Perhaps like me you were watching the Academy Awards on Sunday night and witnessed a performer’s worst nightmare. The way John Travolta somehow turned Idina Menzel into Adele Dazeem is both perplexing and horrifying. Now, I've had my share of embarrassing gaffes on the air but fortunately nothing that rises to that level. I spend a lot of time preparing just to avoid things like that. Whether you like the guy or not, you got feel for him a little bit. The consequences are so huge given the size of the audience. It's hard to live that one down especially in this age of social media. In any event, watching all the Hollywood hoopla reminded me of the movie that I was in which featured one of Hollywood's biggest stars. Imagine my surprise when I was asked to be in a movie with Angelina Jolie. It was only a bit part but the experience was interesting. Read all about it in my blog.
