“I said I am that I am

I am

I am

I am”

-Peter Tosh

My middle name is Grace because my parents thought that together with my first name Amanda, it reminds one of “Amazing Grace.” I like that. Thanks parents.

I am an actress, writer, editor, barista, bartender, scareactor, manager, nanny, witch, aromatherapist, pagan, episcopalian, Californian, Vermonter, feminist, daughter, sister, niece and cousin. And probably some other stuff I forgot.

I can be shy to the point of pain. I just sang myself a congratulatory song for calling the Verizon guy about lowering my bill. ‘Cause, you know, he’s a stranger and strangers are scary. But no! A stranger’s just friend you haven’t met,* right? I’ve a theory that I can find my outgoing side here. It’s time for me to share.

Now I’m gonna try and add links to my Facebook and Instagram and YouTube accounts at the bottom of this page.




That took me forever. Congratulatory singing resumes.

*from “A Streetcar Named Desire.” Or “The Simpsons.” Or both. I can’t remember.
