When I was a kid, I wanted to go to NASA space camp so that I would have the best chance of becoming an astronaut someday. Although life has led me down a different path, I recently got the chance to play one…on the internet.
I spent the early months of 2014 as Assistant Director and acting as Doctor Bernadette Hannegan in a hilarious web series about an international mission to Mars called Tin Can Odyssey. The series’ weekly 5-minute episodes aired on Youtube and are available now. Catch up on Season 1, because we’ll be shooting Season 2 this winter.
Although NASA is not what it used to be, real-life missions to Mars are occurring as we speak. But none of them are the ridiculous fun of Tin Can Odyssey.

I haven’t posted here in a while. I’ve been busy with…kids home for the summer, enjoying the amazing Pacific Northwest outdoors, doing improv at The Upfront Theatre, acting in 48-hour Theatre festivals at the loveable Idiom Theatre, and starting a new project that I’m just dieing to share.
Family Planning and Other Stories, a TV pilot by the sharp Writer/Director Sue Mattson, will be filming in mid-October. Guess who’s in it? ME! I’m fortunate to be appearing (and learning a lot) in my role as Kat, a middle-aged mother who, upon encouragement from her volatile daughter Riley (played by the talented Sarah Waisman), heads into the unpredictable world of on-line dating.
The female-centered script is sharp and full of hilarious characters including Kat’s potential suitors, played by the talented Bill McQuaid and Michael Mitchell.
Check out our Indiegogo fundraising campaign for more details, and make a donation to help get this witty, playful project off the ground.
I also couldn’t help sharing this hilarious commercial starring the versatile Michael Mitchell in You Go Through Vladimir.
Help us get started at Indiegogo today, as there are only 23 days left to reach our $2000 goal. Stay tuned as I’ll be posting more insider details and photos here over the next couple of months.
Please comment here and tell me what you think.
Cheers to new adventures!
