On Cleveland

As you may remember from my previous post, I spent less than 24 hours in Cleveland last week shooting a commercial (which also happened to be the commercial that triggered me to join SAG-AFTRA). I flew out Tuesday night, spent 7 hours in a hotel, shot the commercial (entirely indoors at one location) on Wednesday, and then went straight to the airport to fly back after we wrapped.

I'm including all of this mundane itinerary information to help illustrate for you that I am clearly now intimately familiar with Cleveland. I mean, I know it well. Really well. Like, I've seen it. All of it. Allow me to enlighten you with some of the lesser known facts about life in Cleveland.


  1. There are people in Cleveland.
  2. These people wear clothes, eat food, and drive cars on roads. They use their mouths to talk. They pick things up with their hands. They walk on two feet. 
  3. There are buildings in Cleveland.
  4. Most, if not all, of these buildings have walls, windows, doors, and roofs. 
  5. Cleveland experiences both daytime and nighttime.
  6. However, at the Cleveland airport, it is always nighttime.
  7. Cleveland has at least one hotel.
  8. In that hotel there are such items as a bed, nightstand, alarm clock, desk, small couch, television, sink, closet, safe (for valuables), shower, and toilet. The water bottles are (surprisingly) complimentary.
  9. There is a train track next to the hotel in Cleveland.
  10. The weather in Cleveland is partly cloudy and in the mid 50s.

Here's a scenic photo that really sums up the trip:

Thank you for the memories, Cleveland.
