February 2011

February 2011

Love is in the air…not for me personally but definitely professionally. With Nuclear Cowboyz tour, I traveled to four cities this month. First stop of the month was Atlanta, GA where I met up with my high school friend to catch up over dinner. Columbus and Houston were next and great crowds at the shows! The final weekend in February was in Tampa where I hung out with a college buddy and another friend for dinner and drinks.

Of course, I performed in Las Vegas in FANTASY at the Luxor several nights this month. CURVE tradeshow was in town, so I worked as a fit model for Empriente, a french Canadian lingerie company by day. My job was to try on lingerie all day for various clients, super easy! I also booked a Super Bowl gig at the Wynn as a cheerleader and basically hung out with guests and watched the game. While in Vegas, I took a helicopter ride through the Grand Canyon which checked off another item on my “30 Before 30” list. I couldn't believe rock formations were so beautiful.

In addition to the Nuclear Cowboyz weekend tours, I booked a co star role as “Rye Seeger” on CBS’s THE DEFENDERS! I played a Vegas casino host who gets strangled and left to drown face down in the Jacuzzi. I had the most fun on set ever; a wonderful cast and crew to work with! JIm Belushi even demonstrated an upside down trick with a slow slide down the pole…classic!

Between traveling and performing, I managed to take time out of my busy schedule and continued to read to elementary school kids for an hour one day a week through BOOKPALS ( I also went to the MAGIC CASTLE for a friend's birthday and enjoyed the laughs and magic of my dear friend, Chris Mitchell ( I went to an L.A. gun range for another girlfriend's birthday and shot a revolver and shotgun; good times but nothing like shooting automated weapons in Iraq and Afghanistan!
