The name of the production company, “Sneaky Little Frog,” came from my best friend’s niece, Addison. Addison was maybe 4-years-old at the time. She found an old note under my moms coffee table that my friends and I had put there in high school. She asked my mom to read it to her. My mom read, “Little Addison there is a present for you in the magic closet.” She was referring to the random gifts she kept overflowing in our hall closet “just incase” a child (or person) came over. When Addison returned from the magic closet, with something like 3 Barbie dolls and 5 coloring books in hand, her Aunt Tara asked her where she had gotten the gifts? Addison replied, “Must have been that sneaky little frog.” It makes me smile every time I think about it.

After creating and producing my very first project ever, I was addicted. I thought about every movie or TV show that made me feel seen and understood. I thought about the times I needed to laugh or cry or feel inspired and I realized how much not only acting meant to me, but how much creating meant to me. I thought, I’m sure many people can relate to what I feel and I believe that laughing about it is the best cure (next to more cowbell, of course).

I’ll quote the musical “Dancin’,” “…I’ll leave a few creations to show that I was dancing by…I wanna leave my footsteps on the sands of time…”

Below you will find completed work that I am so very proud of! I hope you enjoy!
