I’m typing up this recap of the last few months from my wooden desk in my Hollywood abode. The sounds system hums Drake’s "Too Much" under its breath, and summer is finally letting go of its hold on Southern California.
The type of acting I appreciate is the brand where I can really invest in the character and his back story. I’ve been blessed with many opportunities to do that lately, going up for the roles of an insensitive doctor in a web series, a competitive husband in a play, and an overexcited father in a commercial.
The third installment of my horror series has arrived. "Pandora 2013: Hullabaloo" marks further devastation at the shopping mall where visitors live out their wildest fantasies. There’s a reason why I always wanted to be a writer. A novel like this one takes me right back.
I work as a speech instructor, so I spend my share of time watching people’s faces turn a frustrated shade of red. When they decided to learn English, mastering consonants wasn’t listed in the brochure. I get that. "Eliminate Your Korean Accent" should help clear up the confusion regarding American speech for at least one cross-section of my students, although I’ve been using this concise textbook to help students from all ends of the earth.
Speaking of accents, you know which accent has gotten a lot of play in recent years? Boston. I figure if you’re going to attempt that monster, you should really leave your mark, so I put together "Learn a Wicked Awesome Boston Accent". This efficient guide will get Yankee fans furious with you in no time.
Since I wear so many hats, I’m often questioned about which career I’m most proud of. Uh ... wrong guy to ask. Ever hear of saturation therapy? That’s when they feed a fat person so much cake that sugar finally repulses him. Well, if acting, writing and teaching are my forms of indulgence, I’d have to say there’s never too much of a good thing.
