If the drinking and the guns don't kill me...the snake bite will.

I thought it would be fun to share my 1000 Ways to Die episode again.  What a fun shoot!  I love how the clip turned out too!
It's crazy to think the stories on the show are TRUE and about REAL PEOPLE and REAL EVENTS.  Sad, actually... and a little scary...

Trust me, it's me! You can call me, Mr. Lexus...

So, you're going to have to mostly take my word for it, but if you look closely, real closely, maybe even squint a little bit....but you'll notice that yours truly is driving that beautiful Lexus in the new Lexus ad.
Sunglasses on.  Zoolander stare.  Yup.  It's me!  Go ahead, just call me, Mr. Lexus!

There I am!!  In a Lexus ad!!  And it's almost impossible to identify me! 
You got to love this crazy industry of mine, otherwise known as the Entertainment Industry, you got to love how it works sometimes.

Well, at least I'll know that it's me appearing in the ad.  And so will you, now!

Try, Try, Try Again

I took the time to put this together in the hopes that it gets passed around and that it will serve as a reminder to...  Try, Try, and Try Again. 

Always follow your dreams and never give up!! 

Remember that failure is just a step along the way to success!!

Yanking Girls Around.

Yup.  That's how I roll.  Yanking girls around at Union Station in Los Angeles.
In my defense however, she is my girlfriend, and she was feeling up another dude's face!
LOL

Check out the commercial I did last year for Panasonic Arc3 Wet/Dry Shaver with advanced Shaving Sensor Technology.  In all seriousness, the shoot was an absolute blast to work on!  Amazing crew, awesome talent, and I think the final product turned out great!!  It was produced by SweatPants Media who did an amazing job and I hope to work with again in the near future!

Check out the clip below and let me know what you think!  I have also included a few behind the scenes shots from set.  Make sure you also LIKE SweatPants Media on Facebook HERE
ENJOY!

A new "AS IS" starring Eve Sigall and Jimmy Boyland

I'm excited! A new "AS IS" starring Eve Sigall and Jimmy Boyland premiered on Thursday, January 30th!
Even more exciting, for me, is that it's release marks the final chapter of my "EVERYTHING=EVERYTHING" vision! Something that all started with the dark comedy short, Everything As Is premiering in October and then continued into the holidays with the premiere of the holiday film, Everything Twas. But when you use the word EVERYTHING, you got to mean it! So, by January 30th, and in addition to the main films that were released, I will have also released; two trailers, two "AS IS" mini shorts, a 1950's parody film, and various behind the scenes clips/interviews! For good measure I even did a week long holiday contest across both fan pages giving away two of the Ceramic Christmas trees that appear in the films and a thematically tied in Holiday card for 2013!!
I worked with over 19 talented actors. Multiple crew on set and amazing post production peeps! The Everything As Is/Everything Twas playlist on YouTube currently has over 1440 views alone!!
I got to say... I feel successful in my endeavors and so very thankful! Thank you to everyone who was involved creatively and thanks to every one else who supported us by watching, liking, and sharing!!
I love this feeling of community within the arts! May 2014 bring even more of it!!



To see any of the above mentioned clips and films, check out the EVERYTHING AS IS/EVERYTHING TWAS PLAYLIST ON YOUTUBE here:
