Haha. Thanks for accepting! I have tried to email you the spot from Med-surge a few times, but my computer says the file is too big. I have tried putting it in a zip file, but that didn't work either. If you want, I can copy it to a disc and send it snail mail. Just let me know if you want it that way. Hope to work with you soon!
If you're looking for a voice coach, Todd Gordon is top notch. He has taught a lot of Broadway and national tour stars. He has an office in the Steinway building near Park Square and he music directs at the New Rep in Watertown.
Great to hear from you and see what you've been doing. To answer your question, I'm auditioning for film and new media, some theater, waiting to hear back, working up a couple of new monologues, and going to class. I'm working on a syllabus for an accent class for non-native speakers of English that I plan to tech at Cambridge College next term and . . . catching my breath. Let's stay in touch.
