That’s me with the Ford Focus 2012 Electric. It has a special place in my heart, because I have been driving the same Ford Focus for ten years. For last year’s LA Auto show, I booked a job for Ford, driving a Focus in competition against a Bentley and narrated by Olympic Skier Jonny Moseley. Unfortunately, every dime I made from that job went directly into ‘Old Bobby to keep her running, but other than that I have had very few problems with her over the years, she has been a dependable girl and I hope she lasts me another decade. But if not, its nice to have a fully electric version of her on the market. Here is my post about The LA Auto Show as contributed to GreenLAGirl.com

About April

Hi! My name is April, I live in Los Angeles, California where I am pursuing an acting career and a B.S. online through the University of Wisconsin. A member of the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, I have an agent who sends me out on auditions for television, film and commercials. I have been lucky enough to guest star on Disney, and even to have played a drug addict on A&E. More recently I started a small production company making web series and short films for fun. I just finished my first feature length screenplay, and am beginning work on another. When I was younger I expected to one day make my living solely in the entertainment Industry, however this is proving difficult. There is a lot of competition for fewer and fewer jobs. DVR's, online streaming, reality television, the writer's strike of 2006 and the bad economy have all played a part in the downturn of production. Meanwhile, living in Los Angeles is expensive, and it is difficult to make a living without at least a bachelors degree. It has become clear to me, that in order to continue to pursue my creative goals, I am going to have to focus on a more sustainable lifestyle. A few years ago, I stumbled upon the tiny house movement. Everything about it made sense to me, smaller living for affordability, giving one the time and energy to focus on what they want to do, rather then just survival. As I learned more, the sustainable aspects became important to me, not only for individual sustainability, but for global sustainability, because they are inextricably connected. My hope is to someday build my own tiny house using sustainable principles.
