The journey continues...


I completed classes at Anoka Ramsey to graduated there with an Associates in Fine Arts -Theater degree. HOORAY to that! It was a great 3 years or less. ONCE finished with that I went on an auditioning spree for commercials and theater. I was granted and BLESSED a role in a professional theater play, "Next Fall" by Geoffrey Nauffts.

HERE'S THE LINK for those that are interested/want to come...

A note on the trailer --I know I look awkward and out of place, it was an off day... and that's just where I was living at that point in the rehearsal process. I'm doing better now. In the ring, I feel like I can hold my own, on a stage I feel like it can be hit or miss. That's the beauty of being an insecure artist...

I am dating a chick that I am head over heels for; the lovely Miss Lauren Haven. (Pictures to come) We have a lot of fun, we're understanding of each other, and I haven't felt this secure in a relationship in a long time. HOORAY FOR THAT!

Another bit of news: I will be RETURNING to CIRCUS WORLD MUSEUM for another WONDERFUL summer full of the sights, sounds, laughter, and drama of CIRCUS!
Joining me will be Greg Parks --former blue show clown and ALL-AROUND COOL DUDE! Will we be Steve and Ryan? No. We'll be Neal And Greg and we'll make it work for the summer.

Another project in coming up this summer will be going back to Mooseburger Clown Camp to teach for a second year! What a joy, thrill, and honor it is to be on an incredible staff of folks I idolized growing up! --I will also be helping out with FunnyBones Productions teaching at a circus camp in Baraboo too! (I'm totally making up for a summer off of clowning! No complaints! ...-yet!)

Life is good right now and I'm trying to take it all in stride (as anyone could.) I totally feel like I AM working --which isn't a bad thing. I am rehearsing hard and meticulously for the show in Minneapolis (getting my legs for the professional stage) and I will be UBER busy this summer with lots of projects... The problem is... what's going to happen in the fall???? Time will tell --and I surge on. Auditions, moving out of the house, a steady job... lots of plans lay ahead, but I must stay focused on the journey. I've got a lot of roses to smell until then.

I'm back on Blogger! The summer is coming and spring is here! I am back and better than ever. CHEERS to what's to come! Thank you, readers, for your patients.
