Are casting directors allowed to ask me about my age, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or sexual orientation?

I talk about this in my online course, The TV Hosting Blueprint. Auditions are job interviews. It's important to know the law and your rights - even if the casting director and production company don't know.

This Common Communication Mistake Makes It Impossible for Others to Understand Your Ideas

Remember the adage "assume" makes an ass out of you and me? I learned a long time ago not to assume the audience or the client or the future boss knows and understands what I know or sees the world through a similar lens (thank you Meyers Briggs!) Connect the dots to communicate clearly and effectively - especially when you are pitching. Spell out your awesomeness and value. #tuesdaytip

Personal systems are OK, but they need to be clear.

#MondayMotivation Big, belated shout out to Kate Cherichello Tente who had a dream, took action, stuck with it and made it happen.

Eight years ago, Kate saw Jersey Boys, fell in love with the show and made it her mission to one day join the cast. To quote Kate: "through God's grace, these years later, I am beyond grateful to say I begin rehearsals with the NCL Jersey Boys company...the eighth time seeing the show it will be from backstage."

Brava Kate 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

Summer Reading List 2019

Warm hello! I was out of pocket for a family wedding then Monday/Tuesday called in frizzy (anyone in New York knows exactly what I mean).

It's officially summer so here's this year's summer reading list. Summer viewing is season 2 of Big Little Lies - can't get enough of Meryl Streep chewing up the Monterey Bay scenery - and Years and Years which debuted Monday on HBO and I recommend watching before the debates (thank you Kerry Muzzey for the tip on this one!)

Let me know what you're reading and watching!

I first got into summer reading lists in high school. Back then the lists were assigned and geared towards prepping for the SAT and AP exams. I still remember – vividly – reading Oedipus Rex by Sophocles and Henry David Thoreau’s Walden during my AFS summer in Tunisia between my junior and sen...
