Here was a surprise bit of publicity that popped into my inbox this morning:
http://the570.com/arts/burlesque-booming-1.1125741

Considering the many articles in which information about me is published, it was refreshing to have not been contacted for fact-checking or an interview - yet still have my history very accurately retold. It's amazing what you can find on the internet with a little research!! :)

It made me feel so nostalgic - folks who've been following me for 10 years (and there are a surprising number of you...just stop to think about it!) will recognize the story, for sure. Can you believe where all of this craziness has taken me? Hard to believe that just 10 years ago, I was a fledgling actor...accidentally breaking into art modeling.

My path has taken me through (and given me unanticipated authority within) so many parts of the entertainment business (radio hosting? directing? web design? fashion styling?) that correlate with and inform eachother. I never deserved it.

That people trusted me and expected me to rise to the challenge...that in the process of saying "yes" I gained enough knowledge of how it all *really* works...I know and am grateful that I am one of the lucky ones who can make an extraordinary living doing what I love. I am so grateful for all the people who've supported and believe in me on this crazy, expressive journey. Thank you!!

Looking forward to the next 10 years!
