dreams and visions coming into reality

Today is an auspicious day for me. My first website ( has been launched and a dream that has been in my heart so long, that I can't remember how it got there, has come into being. That dream is to somehow use my artistic talents to create beautiful things that make people smile and support myself financially in the process.

The seed of the realization of this dream was planted in my heart in 2003 when I made my first trip to Burning Man. It was the first time in my life that I felt like I truly fit in, I felt like I had found my people, and that I actually did belong on this planet!! And through the journey of attending Burning Man over the past five years, I've found a community that wants what I have to offer, and would be delighted to have it. Thank you Burners!!

But before I go any further talking about all that, I have to Thank the people who helped me get to this wonderful day.

First and foremost, I have to thank my number one set of believing eyes, my beloved friend and father of my child, Wes Grasty, who has believed in me and encouraged me for so many years. I just simply could not have achieved any of this without his love and support. It also happens that he is an awesome Daddy and has mad Internet skills to boot! ( &

Secondly, there are the amazingly creative people in my life who have lent their talent to help me manifest my amazing site, and make my dream a reality. They are:
  • John Howard of who designed and built my site. He not only did it for free, but also made me feel like his best customer through the entire process, he's truly amazing and I really feel that angels sent him to me.
  • My dear friend of 20 years, and star photographer Jim McGuire ( who always inspires me in the way he lives his life.
  • My friend Jade Wills ( who possesses mad skills in bringing out the beauty of others, is a talented hooper and poi artist, and still has many, many unrealized talents...can't wait to see what is next for you Jade!
  • And then there's my long time friends Scott Cooper and Kristi Stanfill of ( who not only have represented me as an actor, but also happen to respectively own, and help run, the coolest talent agency around! (
  • And of course there are the group of beautiful models who worked for me for free and did it with grace, high spirits and a wonderful sense of play!! My beautiful model friends: Michael, Lissette, Amber, Heather, Chloe, Lilly and Jade. You guys make my hats look so good!!
  • And then there are my star PR consultants Chai Guy, Shutter and my dear friend Elizabeth Malcolm who is an amazing producer, writer, therapist, director and, and, Liz you have too many talents for me to name here!! I thank you all for your advice and support!!
  • And finally I thank my dear, dear friends, family and Homeslice tribe, who have been my believing eyes through this entire journey!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

O.K. Wow! Well I've got some orders to fill, so more blogging later!!
