I am always honored and flattered when someone shows interest in what I’m doing.  And when they take the time and effort to put it into print, even more so!  I have been lucky to have popped up in print all over the country and abroad, but there’s something special about getting press in your hometown!

Thank you Lansing City Pulse, Ty Forquer, and Todd Heywood for this lovely article!

On a side note, thanks to all of you who have shared my excitement with being part of the Supergirl series.  If you watched the show and didn’t see me – well that’s because I’m on screen for about 5 seconds.  But here is a great screen grab – thanks to my buddy Nathan Prenovost, from my first episode of Supergirl with Chris Vance.

Don’t Aim At Success

viktor-frankl

“Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it”

Viktor E. Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning

Just in time for the Holidays too!  Would make a tasty stocking stuffer for that rocker on your list – assuming they made the “Nice” list.

Thanks everyone for your support!

Check out this lovely card made for me by my friend Paige from Virginia!

What a year this has been!  I have been lucky enough to get to do a lot of work this year with a lot of really wonderful people.  Had a lot of laughs and made a lot of memories!!  You have all brought me countless smiles and feelings of good will for which I’m forever grateful.

Earlier this year I got to shoot a movie for the Lifetime channel directed by my friend Steven Monroe.  I got to play an FBI agent and it just aired last month by the name “Online Abduction“.

A few days later, the movie I wrote and directed, Radio America, released on various platforms in North America.  You can order it through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy.  You can also stream it on demand via Comcast, Verizon, Charter, MGO, Vudu, MS, and Google Play.  With more outlets coming soon!

An album of songs is also recently available from that movie!

I have been doing a live play locally here for the holidays. It is a heartwarming piece based on a short story by Truman Capote loosely based on his experiences growing up in Alabama with his cousins.

And I just finished shooting my second episode of Supergirl. It’s a great show that has wonderful empowering themes. I’m proud to be a part of it, even if I may play an operative of the dark side. 😉

Though we had to say goodbye to our sweet dog Scout this summer, we’re grateful that she is no longer suffering from cancer. And our pitbull Sophie is loving the many new human and K9 friends she has made at our new home!

And just while I have been thinking about all the things I have to be thankful for, my world seems a little brighter and better! Turns out it’s true that if you turn your focus in a certain direction, you’ll just naturally experience more of that feeling. So I suggest turning off all of the negative headline news and resist those conversations that lure you into complaining and feeling helpless. And rather start focusing on all of the great things you have going on in your life (there are tons of them, I promise!!) and all the power you have on the things in your immediate circle of influence!  Your world might actually get a little brighter too!!

And Happy Holidays!!

All Things Possible!!

Talent Monthly Magazine

I’m excited to announce that I have a new article to promote!  My buddy (and very soon to be birthday boy) Clint Morris arranged this interview with publisher Mattie Rae for Talent Monthly Magazine.  She had thoughtful questions and really brought the article alive with a ton of colorful pictures!  My buddy and Radio America cinematographer Terrance Stewart shot the cover photo and another pal and director of Lady Bug, Brooks Campbell, did the graphic design for a new twist on Talent Monthly‘s theme.  I’m honored to be included in in this interesting and eclectic magazine!

Tenacity

Nothing gets started without passion.  Nothing gets finished without tenacity.

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure , the process is its own reward. – Amelia Earhart

Endurance and tenacity are critical traits to succeed at any endeavor.  Not just to endure the discomfort of becoming, but to embrace the process and know every road looks shorter on the map.

All Things Possible!
Chris

Passion

Passion is a direction, not a destination, and it can’t exist without discontent.  Find your deepest frustrations, disappointments, and heartbreak.  Now point in the opposite direction.  The force with which you move in that direction is your passion.

All Things Possible,

Chris

Happy Leap Second!

Happy Leap Second Everyone!

That’s right!  Today we FALL BACK!  One second, that is.  So tonight, be sure to set your clocks back from 11:59:59pm to 11:59:58pm.  Turns out, ever since 1972 we have noticed that the earth’s rotation is gradually slowing down relative to the atomic clock.  So every so often we need to add a single second to the calendar year.  We have added 25 seconds since 1972 – the last leap second occurring on June 30th 2012.
