Click to enlarge my face if you dare

Let me tell ya a thing or two about me:

Fiction: I am totally able to do the Smooth Criminal lean without any assistance from a wall, my legs, or someone tying a fishing line to my waist and pulling me (…and inevitably dropping me…sorry face)

One thing is for sure: I love to learn!

I love getting up at 8:00 am on Sunday mornings to attend my local Globe Theatre’s Artist Labs. These are classes led by acclaimed theatre practitioners from all over Canada!

Sometimes I remind myself of that eager lab tech person in crime shows…you know, the really smart but socially awkward guy they keep in the back away from all the sane, well-adjusted people ha – Oh! like Spencer Reid in Criminal Minds! Nailed it.

Fact: My first real non-peck like kiss was on a film set (Hard to believe I know).

Always the platonic best friend never the lover haha.

Fiction: I have been cast on occasions purely due to my mesmerizing kissing technique. I was the world’s first certified lip double.

I love that I pushed myself to join Hapkido after debating the matter for a week in August 2018. Boom… a year later I’m an orange belt baby!

Fact: I achieved my yellow belt in Hapkido just a couple months shy of a year after I started formal training.

Fiction: I have killed three martial arts masters by pulling their hearts out of their chest like in poorly dubbed kung-fu movies. They were honorable deaths indeed.

Don’t worry though, it’s not all shakespearean gravitas in my world. Just between us…at night I enjoy shining a laser pointer into my neighbors living room. Imagining how annoyed he must feel that some dumb kid is ruining Sports Centre brings a wicked delight to my soul. Shhhh, don’t tell anyone.

Fact: I am fluent in Spanish and speak it like the devil dancing in flamenco shoes.

Fiction: I also speak gibberish, which I sometimes use to get out of boring meetings.

I have been told that I can occasionally become the obnoxious, loud, and comedic best friend. That’s only because I can occasionally get slightly carried away when I’m with people I love.

Fact: I am a self-taught MJ style dancer. Have been practicing since I was sixteen years old.

To be honest, most times I can’t wait to leave any event that takes place in a pub or nightclub to go home and watch Joe Gordon-Levitt in “The Lookout” (Most of you will not know that movie uh…sigh. Such a shame…Scott Frank wrote and directed that ya know).

I love that I have a large family spread out all over the world. Everywhere I go people know me…I’m kind of a big deal 😉 There is a giant presidential portrait of me hanging above my fireplace, which I admire every morning wearing my bathrobe made of chinchilla. I also own many landscape photography coffee table books . However, I do not own a coffee table because I do not drink coffee, therefore I refuse to buy a coffee table dang it! Whew…got kind of ranty there huh…

Fact: I own a lightsaber…that is all.

Fiction: I have very strong feelings about purchasing furniture that contradicts my beliefs. I don’t let dumbwaiters in my house. Nobody with an I.Q. higher than mine is allowed! Just FYI for when my birthday roles around. 

I love that I have never been offended by any movie, comedian, inappropriate relative or other media related content. I simply laugh. It’s entertainment people. You don’t have to watch it if you don’t want to. As far as the inappropriate relative goes…You can always “take care of them” haha kidding – how often do you see them anyways!

If you’re still on this page by this point, I have three things to say to you:

Wow! Thank you so much for your time and amaze balls attention span!

Also, Geez! you must really not have a life. Haha! It’s all good. That makes two of us!

Truthfully, there is nothing I could write here that could truly give you an authentic view of who I am. That takes time and one on one contact. I will say that I am sincerely grateful that you have taken the time to visit my website. Many wonderful, honorable, and intelligent people helped create it. Hopefully, this has given you a snapshot of what is important to me and how I can be of service. Many thanks and best wishes to you in all your life endeavors.
