"But, Enough About Me."

Had a great time at last night's Network Austin Mixer; a bi-weekly networking `get together' where various people in the Austin entertainment industry meet, forward their careers and share ideas and information. Met a number of actors (and made new friends with terrific people like Lexa Dell Prette, Doran Ingrham, and the inimitable Gary Wimmer) and at least one agent (Heather Collier), had some wonderfully animated conversations, and handed out a few business cards.

Last night's speaker was Casting Director Donise Hardy, C.S.A., from Casting Works LA. These events are geared toward TV and film actors, but her advice and knowledge of this Business we call Show is invaluble for anyone in the acting field --- and we voiceover types are part of that crowd (at least we'd better be!). The next mixer is a firm to-do on my calendar.
