A musical premiere! Part of Portland’s Fertile Ground Festival. Dex Dixon is a hard-boiled paranormal investigator at the beginning of the end of his career. He lives in Our Fair City, a gritty urban jungle just across the dimensional rift from Night Side, a city populated by the movie monsters of old. The Adventures of Dex Dixon is a film noir, horror, comedy musical filled with puns, guns, vixens, vamps monsters, music, and mayhem.
Earlier this summer, we had a
fantastic afternoon presenting our
“Cocktails, Memories and You”
cabaret show on Father’s Day 2015
that was part of a fundraising event

Next came summer fun with us both acting in an outdoor touring production by Masque Alfresco of Carlo Goldoni’s The Venetian Twins, which played in Lake Oswego, Beaverton and Hillsboro.
We also were fortunate to work on several on-camera projects thruoghout the year. Athena was featured as a Medieval Fishmonger Wench in the Animal Planet tv pilot, Medieval Monsters! This aired on Animal Planet in May during their Monsters Week lineup. I also appeared in a Toyota of Seattle commercial, a Toyota spec. advertisement, K. J. in a music video, both of us in a promotional project with Berry MediaWorks, and I am about to begin work in an independent film–all of it a great deal of fun!
This fall brought us to audiences throughout the area in several holiday productions:
The first was Flash-Ah-Ahh!, a musical parody of Flash Gordon with music by the rock group Queen:
Next, a little Shakespeare–we reprised our roles of Petra Quince and Flute/Thisbe from A Midsummer Night’s Dream as part of a fundraiser for Portland Actors Ensemble sponsored by the ISing choir, who sang Shakespeare songs interspersed with scenes from the play:
