Welcome to The Soap Spiel and thanks so much for being here! It is certainly my pleasure!I grew up watching soaps. Another World was my first and I couldn't be more than 7-8. Loved it! Tell us what that experience was like?
I grew up on the show, too! Literally. All told, it was 9 years as Amanda Cory. It was wonderful to work with some great people like Constance Ford, who played my grandmother on the show ( I felt she took me under her wing and we had great talks, well, she gave great life advice and I listened!). I feel blessed that I was able to play a role over so many years, and I got to experience the richness of character that develops as the writers get comfortable with you, the actor and with the new boundaries that Amanda faced as she matured.What project/projects are you currently working on?
I have a reality show called Paranormal Tech that is currently on BLIP ( online) but is being shown to networks this pilot season, so.. we'll see! I am part of a team of investigators ( made up of believers AND skeptics) that is called in to check out reports of paranormal activity! I take on a bit of a journalistic role, researching some history and interviewing witnesses. Am I a believer? You'll have to watch! :)
What do you like to do for fun?
I love riding my horses in the hills, hiking with my dogs ( two German Shepherds), mountain biking and kickboxing. When I am feeling more mellow, wine tasting or lunch at the beach :) Creative outlets are drawing, writing or attempting to play the piano ( badly).
I have a passion for helping people see God's gifts in them ( I founded a company called Charisma on Camera to help experts feel like a rock star when they step in front of a TV or Video camera) and also the gift of nature. I am involved in wildlife conservation and truly think humans are healthier when we are connected to nature!
