What's Your Story?

I love to travel, but I’m an unenthusiastic travel planner. I’m that asshole who lets my travel buddies do the research while I show up with Venmo and a smile. From my perspective, this is a great thing. People who love to plan travel get to do what they love to do and...

One of my big commitments this summer is taking my solo show, That’s Not How It Happened, on the road. In January, I applied to 4 Fringe Festivals and, much to my surprise, got accepted into all of them. 

Now, I’m managing myself through 4 different festivals in 2 count...

I've always had a rocky relationship with my singing voice. As a kid, I’d sing with my Dad at the bar, happily oblivious to my clearly sub-par vocal range. (Get it together, 5-year old, Colleen!).

Costa Rica - 2016, Part 2

Journal entry from my Friday morning beach meditation:

New meditation today- the theme is “Acceptance." He starts with a question: “Who or what in your life are you resisting right now?” Feelings of sadness, fear and overwhelm- no surprises-...

If you know me well, or are a regular reader, you know that personal development is a big part of my life. I’ve been seeking, and trusting that the “ye shall find” bit will follow.

I meditate, journal, set intentions and goals. I’ve read ALL the Brene Brown books and ha...

March 2019 — Playa Troncones, Mexico

It’s a couple of days into this yoga retreat and so far it’s bliss - which is also the name of my cabana. 

On many vacations, especially when I’m traveling out of the country, I tend to over schedule myself: excursions, classes...
