Murdoch Mysteries on Set

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

A huge shout out to the exceptionally talented art and creative team on CBC’s Murdoch Mysteries. Costume designer Alex Reda and assistant Randi  Littlefair, on set dresser- who was my saviour- Paul Breckenridge, who managed to shimmy me in and out of this dress with the help of others and a stepladder; hair goddesses Lucy Orton and Renee Chan, makeup wizards Deb Drennan and Yasmeen Jalali.

And of course, the dashing Jonny Harris as Crabtree, pictured here with me. A very fun shoot.

NXNE- Singing with The Fires Of

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

My old friend and drummer Greg Heard, who played on my album, Lustre- check out the album under music– asked me to fill in for their female singer in his band, The Fires Of during NXNE this Thursday, June 14th, at 8 pm at Monarch Tavern.

Their singer and guitar player are off in Norway for the summer so myself and another great multi instrumentalist, Scott (whose last name I’m blanking on) are filling in the blanks, so to speak.  I’ll be covering all the bv’s , perhaps whipping out my awesome tambourine skills….just loving learning a whole sets worth of new original alternative pop~rock tunes. A great group of musicians- should be a terrifically fun evening. Rehearsal reminds me how much I love (miss) being in a band. Check out the embedded links for more information. Likely a one off so don’t miss it!

I have been a certified personal trainer since 2005. It’s a great gig for an actor: flexible, disciplined, creative, and above all, it keeps me sane physically and mentally. I had the privilege of working with 2 dear friends on this video- Mark Mainguy who did the shooting and Anthony Grani who edited  the footage into this  short piece.  People always ask me what it is I do when I train. This is how I roll.
