Words to Live By:
“What stops you here, stops your entire life.” -Chuck Palahniuk, Haunted
Becky Mezzanotte-Blizard (or Becky Mezz as she is commonly called) has purple hair and her co-workers like to joke that she is actually a spy. (That’s not true, btw.) She is a beauty pageant contestant turned ballerina turned musician turned actor turned filmmaker/photographer turned graduate of the International Media program at American University. A Baltimore native, Becky works as the Marketing Manager for the Anime Portfolio of LeftField Media or as she likes to say, a “professional fangirl.”
Much of her free time nowadays is spent at the ice rink practicing jumps and spins. Sometimes you can catch her in hockey skates with a hockey stick. She also spends time shooting photographs, reading books, obsessing over British and Korean TV shows, and traveling wherever her feet may take her. She has lived in Prague and Cairo and traveled to London, Edinburgh, Alexandria, Siwa, Luxor, Aswan, Vienna, Berlin, Tokyo, Kyoto, Toronto, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, and a number of places in the United States. She likes to travel with her skates. Her most crazy adventure involved driving to Toronto with her best friend to see her favorite K-Pop band.
She is the director and producer of several short films, many of which were submissions for the Baltimore 48 Hour Film Project. She is also a former props designer and the former production manager for Nu Sass Productions.
More of her opinions can be found as a contributing writer to Sutradhar’s Market and her photography can be seen featured for History Matters/ Back to the Future for their event “Scenes from Historic Women Playwrights: Read by Luminaries of the Stage” event in 2012. She is also a contributing writer to Adults Skate Too, a figure skating blog dedicated to adult skaters.
