Growing up the daughter of a music teacher, Kat Perkins has been singing, dancing, and performing for just about as long as she can remember. At just 15 years old, she made the move to the Twin Cities from rural North Dakota and her professional career began as she became a success in the Minneapolis-St. Paul theatre scene.

Over the years, Perkins has performed and recorded with her bands Scarlet Haze, Northern Comfort, and SKITZOfrenic. Scarlet Haze’s third record came out February of 2012 and was produced by James ‘Fluff’ Harley of World Record Productions and the debut single features Guns N’ Roses guitars Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal, Nine Inch Nails drummer Ilan Rubin, Grammy-nominated producer Joe Marlett (Foo Fighters, Korn) and her current musical director Eric Warner.
Perkins recently found herself in the national spotlight on NBC’s THE VOICE as a Top 5 contestant coached by Adam Levine (of Maroon 5). Her single, “Fearless” was produced by John Fields (Pink, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez) and independently hit #5 upon release on the iTunes charts.

When not on stage, you can usually find Perkins nannying, writing, recording and constantly coming up with new projects as well as managing other bands in the business. She speaks at many schools also.

Rob Paulsen11:30AM (PST) – Rob Paulsen, VO artist

@yakkopinky
robpaulsenlive.com

Maybe you’ve never heard of Rob Paulsen. But you’ve heard him. A lot. Maybe you don’t know Rob Paulsen, but you know Pinky and the Brain, Animaniacs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius, and most of the other animated projects that Paulsen has been part of as a voice actor for nearly three decades. With over 2,000 (yes, that’s right) half-hour programs and dozens of films, video games, and other animated media to his credit, Paulsen has been one of the hardest working, most in-demand, and most beloved voice artists in the industry. A Daytime Emmy, Peabody, and three-time Annie winner, he’s also launched a successful podcast (“Talkin’ Toons”) about the animation industry and art of voice acting, and has started performing “Animaniacs Live!”, a traveling live show that brings the magic of the legendary series to symphony orchestra halls and comedy festivals all around the country.

Born in Detroit and attending high school in Grand Blanc, the proud Michigander soon realized that he “didn’t quite have the talent, temperament, nor dental insurance to become a professional hockey player.” Paulsen quickly turned to his second love, music, as a way of making a career for himself. More than just a would-be rock band frontman, Paulsen listened to a wide variety of music and learned how to read music. That time and dedication to the craft, he believes, started to train his ear, eye, and voice to work together in a wide array of styles. He didn’t realize it at the time, but those are exactly the kind of skills that makes for a great voice actor. Arriving in Los Angeles in the late 1970s, he intended to pursue live action work, and indeed appeared in guest roles on shows like St. Elsewhere and MacGyver, and in Brian DePalma’s Body Double. He also studied at the Groundlings, Los Angeles’ legendary comedy/improvisation troupe, where he befriended and had the opportunity to work with some of the group’s notable members like Phil Hartman, Paul Reubens, Lynne Marie Stewart, John Paragon, Cassandra Peterson, and Laraine Newman. The training added to Paulsen’s comedy skills, and allowed him to pursue a passion he had harbored since childhood. British influence would provide the inspiration for the unlikely voice of the lab rat, Pinky, whose foolish, good-natured British twang is the perfect counterpoint to the Brain’s sinister, dead-on reimagining of Orson Welles as voiced by Maurice LaMarche. While Pinky and the Brain was still a ways off, some early voice work on series such as the animated G.I. Joe brought Paulsen in contact with the world of professional voice actors at a time when the profession and the industry was just about to explode. Along with industry vets like Frank Welker, Tress MacNeille, Billy West, John DiMaggio, and LaMarche, Paulsen became a part of the “next generation” of great voice artists following in the tradition of Mel Blanc, June Foray, Arthur Q. Bryan, Hans Conried, Don Messick, and Bea Benadaret. G.I. Joe lead to an audition at Hanna-Barbara for a revival of the classic series Jonny Quest. Paulsen landed the role of Hadji, Jonny’s Indian-born adopted brother, and he knew he had found a career. Paulsen credits veteran television director Gordon Hunt for casting him and mentoring him at a key point in his career.

That early success came right at the advent of the cable revolution and the millennial baby boom, and there was suddenly a demand for family-oriented programming that would enchant young viewers as well as their parents – parents who had their own connections and memories to animation from years of growing up watching cartoons on Saturday morning. Disney, Warner Brothers, and Hanna-Barbara all started reviving old series and creating new ones, while networks like Nickelodeon and syndication outlets began demanding more original daytime programming. Paulsen and his colleagues have worked for all of them, using their incredible talents to literally bring to life some of the most beloved original characters of a generation while simultaneously bringing back to life the classic characters of yesteryear. Paulsen’s credits are too numerous to detail, and he has a strong, intuitive emotional connection to many of his more beloved characters. But it’s only recently that he’s begun to realize how much his work has shaped the lives of viewers in unexpected ways. You see, Paulsen was the original voice of Raphael on the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle series – an early project that unexpectedly became a pop culture sensation. A quarter of a century after that original series, Paulsen was approached about doing the reboot of TMNT – but to audition for Donatello. It turned out that the new producers had been raised on the original series and were thrilled that Paulsen might be available to work with them. That generation of millennials who grew up in the world of Paulsen’s characters are now his colleagues. Beyond that, Paulsen has also been made deeply aware of the impact of his work beyond the industry. That’s one of the reasons Paulsen has been more active recently in reaching more people and reminding them of the ways in which being passionate about your career can provide a lifetime of happiness. His podcasts features chats with the many industry professionals he has worked with over the years reflecting on the personal and cultural value of their work. He’s also been given permission by Steven Spielberg and Warner Brothers to produce “Animaniacs Live”, which Paulsen performs with the Emmy-winning writer of series’ most beloved songs, Randy Rogel. That program, which can be performed with a full symphony orchestra or as a cabaret-sized two-person show, features Paulsen singing some of the series’ memorable musical​ ​numbers with live accompaniment while the cartoon plays on a screen.

@closerweekly

Egusquiza is the veteran gossip hound famed for being the first one to break the story/scandal of political figure John Edwards’ extramarital affair – ten months before mainstream media jumped on the bandwagon.

A bartender turned Hollywood reporter/gossip guru, Rick joined the National Enquirer back in early 2000 by pure serendipity – being at the right place at the right time – but also for the mere fact that the very West Coast hipster-looking thespian has a unique certain je ne sais quoi that somehow makes him a people magnet – he’s everybody’s confidant.
Egusquiza is a walking encyclopedia of all things entertainment celebrity related. Like a sponge, he absorbs information at the speed of light, retains names and faces in a heartbeat, always got the perfect punch and/or comeback line, and of course is always in the know and in the now!
It’s nearly impossible to resist the captivatingly entertaining spell of this corky, bubbly, at times goofy, unique character who luckily for us is blessed with an infectiously great sense of humor, a contagiously energetic and hysterically comical personality. Needless to say, the camera loves him! The fit 45-year-old Cuban-American/New Jersey native has a very unique fashion style sporting his trademark signature attire- flip-flops and black-rimmed glasses – and an indelible “Joie de vivre” grin on his face. He’s appeared on numerous TV shows including Inside Edition, Geraldo at Large on Fox News and CNN to name a few.

There’s definitely something reassuring and contagiously appealing about Rick’s uber cool personality that impulsively draws you to him. Charming and charismatic in a non-threatening way, his ever-so approachable demeanor naturally makes him the perfect candidate to be the ideal “best friend” – and indeed, that’s just it…everybody loves Rick.

While famous for working under prosthetics in iconic feature film roles, Doug Jones is also a versatile character actor who has performed as “himself” in guest star roles on shows like “Teen Wolf”, “The Strain”, “Criminal Minds”, “C.S.I.” and NBC’s horror anthology “Fear Itself”. A veteran of over 100 commercials, Doug was Mac Tonight, the moon-headed piano player in the long-running 1990’s McDonald’s campaign. He also starred as the lead villain in “Hush”, an Emmy-winning episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, long considered a fan favorite.

In 2005, he played the title role of Pan (as well as the nightmare character, The Pale Man) in Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar-winning Spanish language fantasy/horror feature “Pan’s Labyrinth”. But it was his sensitive and elegant performance as Abe Sapien in del Toro’s 2004 box office hit “Hellboy” that brought Doug’s unique work to a wider audience. He went on to voice that same character for the Emmy-nominated Cartoon Network animations “Hellboy: Sword of Storms” and “Hellboy: Blood and Iron”. In 2007, Doug’s title role performance in “Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer” was hailed by fans and critics alike. 2008 saw Doug reprise his starring role (as well as two other characters) in “Hellboy II: The Golden Army”, once more under the direction of del Toro. He currently stars in “Gainsbourg”, a stylized biopic of the famous French poet/ singer/composer Serge Gainsbourg, in which he plays Gainsbourg’s dark alter ego. The film has won three Cesar Awards (the French equivalent of The Oscars).

@natgeowild

Dr. Jan Pol was born in the Netherlands and raised on a family dairy farm. With more than 40 years of veterinary experience, Dr. Pol is a pioneer in treating animals. He began his career working for a local veterinarian in Harbor Beach, Mich. However, eager to begin his own practice, in 1981, Dr. Pol and his wife Diane started their own animal clinic out of their home. The business continued to grow and they, along with their 10 employees, have serviced thousands of patients since their doors opened.

Now, viewers will get the chance to see the doc in action firsthand as he makes farm calls and treats patients in his very busy clinic. Dr. Pol is featured in the Nat Geo WILD series The Incredible Dr. Pol, which follows the doctor on his routine 14-hour workdays treating both pets and livestock.

Not only the town vet, Dr. Pol is also a family man who kept his family near his passion. His son Charles helped his father as a child in the clinic, and although he didn’t love it, he now views his father differently.
Specializing in large farm animals, Dr. Pol treats horses, pigs, cows, sheep, alpacas, goats, chickens and even an occasional reindeer. A true friend of the farmer, he works tirelessly to ensure that the diminishing population of family farmers remains in business. And he plays an integral role in keeping farmers’ livestock healthy and their businesses profitable. With his thick Dutch accent, signature mustache and vintage 1981 “Back to the Future” DeLorean car, Dr. Pol is nothing short of a local legend.

@Life_and_Style
@closerweekly

Egusquiza is the veteran gossip hound famed for being the first one to break the story/scandal of political figure John Edwards’ extramarital affair – ten months before mainstream media jumped on the bandwagon.

A bartender turned Hollywood reporter/gossip guru, Rick joined the National Enquirer back in early 2000 by pure serendipity – being at the right place at the right time – but also for the mere fact that the very West Coast hipster-looking thespian has a unique certain je ne sais quoi that somehow makes him a people magnet – he’s everybody’s confidant.
Egusquiza is a walking encyclopedia of all things entertainment celebrity related. Like a sponge, he absorbs information at the speed of light, retains names and faces in a heartbeat, always got the perfect punch and/or comeback line, and of course is always in the know and in the now!
It’s nearly impossible to resist the captivatingly entertaining spell of this corky, bubbly, at times goofy, unique character who luckily for us is blessed with an infectiously great sense of humor, a contagiously energetic and hysterically comical personality. Needless to say, the camera loves him! The fit 45-year-old Cuban-American/New Jersey native has a very unique fashion style sporting his trademark signature attire- flip-flops and black-rimmed glasses – and an indelible “Joie de vivre” grin on his face. He’s appeared on numerous TV shows including Inside Edition, Geraldo at Large on Fox News and CNN to name a few.

There’s definitely something reassuring and contagiously appealing about Rick’s uber cool personality that impulsively draws you to him. Charming and charismatic in a non-threatening way, his ever-so approachable demeanor naturally makes him the perfect candidate to be the ideal “best friend” – and indeed, that’s just it…everybody loves Rick.

@AnimalDefenders
www.ad-international.org

Jan Creamer and Tim Phillips are the co-founders of Animal Defenders International (ADI), two fearless, compassionate individuals who fight for those who cannot fight for themselves: the abused and neglected animals of the world. Creamer and Phillips are a tenacious husband-and-wife team committed to ADI, an organization that champions for oppressed animals across the globe. The renowned group stops animal abuse, rescues animals in distress, and secures legislation that protects animals from harm in laboratories, farms, and the entertainment industry. They use false identities, hidden cameras, elaborate cover stories, and covert surveillance techniques to capture footage in circuses, slaughterhouses, and laboratories. The two leaders have endured death threats and violent attacks in their mission to take hurt animals away from people who do not want to give them up. The couple publishes technical reports, educates communities, and drafts legislation documents for animals worldwide. In the U.S., more than 50 cities/counties in 23 states have taken action to restrict wild animals from traveling circuses. And around the world, hundreds of local ordinances are in place, including in the UK, Europe, and South America. National restrictions on performing animals in traveling circuses, either wild or all animals, have been enacted in 31 countries – Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, El Salvador, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, India, Israel, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Slovenia, Sweden, and Taiwan. Similar laws are under discussion in the UK, Brazil, Chile, Malta, Mexico and The Netherlands.

They are currently involved in a rescue to take all the wild animals from circuses in Peru, and are hard at work on the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act (TEAPA), a bill that aims to end the use of exotic and wild animals in traveling circuses in the US. They are also exposed the cruel treatment of circus animals in Bolivia, going undercover to rescue and relocate 25 circus lions via airlift to safer homes in the United States (following the country’s ban on all animals in circuses). The rescue of the animals, called Operation Lion Ark, was funded through the kindness and generosity of Bob Barker. “Lion Ark”, produced by ADI Films, captures the behind-the-scenes plight of the animal rescue, the heartache, and the joyful flight to freedom. The film has won awards at the Sedona International Film Festival, the Omaha Film Festival, the Sun & Sand Mississippi Film and Music Festival, the Anchorage Film Festival and the Palm Beach International Film Festival.

ADI held a fundraising gala in Los Angeles, where they presented television host and philanthropist Bob Barker with the Lord Houghton Award for outstanding services to animal welfare. ADI also honored actress Jorja Fox (“CSI”) with the Animal Champion Award for her dedication to sustaining safe environments for animals in entertainment. Other ADI celebrity supporters include Sir Paul McCartney, Ricky Gervais, Jane Goodall, Morrissey, Stella McCartney, Brian Blessed, Twiggy and Sir Roger Moore.
