Networking Game

The last couple weeks I have been focusing on my networking game, as it’s probably the poorest aspect in my toolbox. You see, I never thought about making connections that way. I had no idea I would need to go to events first. I thought I would do the auditions, now that I’ve been to…

Spontaneous Pneumothorax, My Story. Part 1.

This blog will differ from my usual blogs about acting. This is something that’s very near and dear to my heart. In fact it’s my lungs! I had something called spontaneous pneumothorax (a collapsed lung). This is my story. I didn’t know what I wanted to do in life but I knew that if there was an…

I’m not Arnold, I’m Adnan.

For a long time, I had this idea of what I wanted to look and be like. It was all about the type of actor I wanted to be, just like the men I looked up to. Only to realise I was growing up not meeting any of those expectations I set for myself.   I thought I was going…

Headshots

I absolutely love getting new headshots. I only do it once a year but its one of my favourite parts of being in this business. Especially this time, I had a great photographer taking my shots. I love how they came out. I love photos in general, I really can’t get enough of black and…

Finding The Right Agent

Some people find it easy and some hard, I was the latter. When I graduated drama school, I like many other actors after a few years in the comfort of a school atmosphere assume agents will just want me and then my career would take off. It wasn’t like that at all. I had peaked…

Tales of a Procrastinator

I’ve been procrastinating my whole life. It first started at a young age, my mother would  sit next to me when I was doing my homework to keep me focused on the task at hand and that’s still a problem today. The last few weeks I’ve been so busy with my retail job that my…

New Year, Same Hard Working Me

Happy new year all. Its been a crazy start to the new year already. As the title implies I’m one of those people who don’t believe in waiting for the new year to be proactive. Before the new year, my wonderful girlfriend helped me devise a plan for the next few months to stay active…

Maple Cinnamon Bundt Cake

I love this cake but it didn’t come without its learning curves. This is a very moist cake. The first time my sister and i tried to bake it, we didn’t use a Bundt tin and it really didn’t turn out, the outside was on the darker side and the inside was still uncooked. It…

Building the Ads brand

Building my brand has been a journey in itself. One of the paths I’m taking is doing a podcast with good friends. These podcasts are created by my good friend Scott Sowter and I, this fun little podcast is all about us reviewing films, the creative side of the film industry. In the podcast we…
