Jodi in a Weed Factory? Tue, 18 Jul 2017 22:09:23 +0000 It’s strange, but TRUE! I was recently cast in a successful run of the live musical satire, Willy Wonka and the Weed Factory. Inspired by the Roald Dahl classic, Willy Wonka and the Weed Factory is a heartfelt comedy about five “Golden Spliffin” winners and their invite by a hemp enthusiast to come explore his weed factory and all that cannabis as to offer.
Also Spliffin, a company that produces cannabis vape pens, loved us SO MUCH that they decided to sponsor our entire show! We also got write ups in High TimesThe Weed Blog, and Kindland with sold out shows!
I had fun of playing 2 roles, both the OLD WOMAN and a HEMPA LEMPA. My OLD WOMAN character held the narration of the entire project, and was reviewed as having a “poignant performance” by the South Pasadenan.

Since the show has done so well, Spliffin wants to sponsor us for a Nationwide tour!
I’d love to keep you posted when this happens, and when we have our next run in the Hollywood area.

Learn American Sign Language (ASL) Thu, 14 Jan 2016 03:32:01 +0000’m glad you want to learn American Sign Language (ASL). It’s an important language of America and more people should know how to sign. Yes, I can tutor you but I’d prefer it if you were tutored by someone who is deaf or hard of hearing (HoH) instead. All of my teachers from the University of Minnesota were deaf, and who better to teach ASL than native signers. If all of the L.A. deaf/HoH tutors are taken, sure, come to me. But seriously, check out:

Lauren Maucere
Kailyn Aaron-Lozano
(I will update as I find more people)
