So this is cool: My hot wife and I have been invited to speak to a group of filmmakers, writers, actors, and otherwise creative people in DC. We’re approaching it kind of like Show and Tell in which we’ll be sharing our recent work along with lessons learned and a bit of our personal stories as well. I’m quite excited about it!
…and if I’m being honest I’m extremely nervous about it.
It’s not so much the public speaking that scares me, but rather the fact that I have no answers to the questions that keep flooding my head: What can these people actually learn from me? Do I have anything worthwhile or interesting to say? Is it even going to be relevant? etc. All the while suppressing feelings of inadequacy and impostor syndrome…
The good news is that Lacey is presenting with me, and she is entertaining, funny, gorgeous –all those things that keep people’s attention. She will be talking about her recent experience doing makeup for a feature film starring Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, and Uma Thurman. Lacey graduated at the top of her class from the Make Up For Ever Academy in New York City. She won first place in an international makeup competition in London earlier this year, and she has worked with clients including NBC and Nickelodeon among others. She studied acting and music in college, and above all she loves to make people laugh.
As for me, I will be sharing an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at my trip to South Africa as well as other recent projects. My goal is to share what I’ve learned from a decade of freelancing, and my hope is to inspire others to make good art.
