Bronx Zoo Cobra

The ticker read, “Poisonous Snake on the Loose.”

I’ve just signed on to help produce a pilot for a cable network.

Like many production-related, freelance gigs, I have no earthly idea what I am getting myself into. I agreed to take on the project because I like the people I will work with, because this is a new challenge, and frankly, because I’m waiting to hear on a few full-time opportunities. Great way to pick up a few extra bucks!

Oh, local deal-of-the day website, I owe much of my social life to you.

You were there to provide brunch at the swanky bungalow restaurant when I had no more than $15 to spend.


You saw me through two trial months at various barre exercise studios, shaking and strengthening.
