2017 Is Off To A Great Start

Today, 10-February-2017, I met up with my manager, Jeffrey Allard, to discuss my booking for one feature film, which shoots in Ireland on 17-April-2017, called, Don’t Leave Home. Also, I will be auditioning for a feature film, called, LuLu Land, which shoots in California in March 2017. Presently, it’s in pre-production, as the script is being…

What’s in your pack? (EDC & Bug-out Items)

Before I get started with the items in my EDC (Everyday Carry) and bug-out (emergency items) pack, I’d like to mention the importance of training, knowledge, practice, and learning.  No EDC or bug-out pack can replace training, knowledge, practice, and learning of combat and survival techniques and skills.  I’ve been in two major city catastrophes;…

Sidearm Owners Should Take Safety, Legal, and Tactical Training Classes

BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front): borrowing this term and format from, 100 Deadly Skills, by Clint Emerson, US Navy SEAL, Retired: Don’t use your sidearm unless you absolutely have NO other option. When I first got my sidearm, Sig Sauer Black Nitron P226R 9 mm, I did not use it; instead, it sat in its safety case…

Eric Bogosian’s, Talk Radio: My First Play

When I retired from Corporate America to pursue my acting career, one of my many goals, as an actor, was to perform in a play — a live stage performance.  I auditioned for two plays, and I didn’t get the part.   I didn’t give up; at my third attempt, I auditioned for Talk Radio….

My first paycheck as a stage-actor

When I returned back home yesterday, 3-November-2016, I received an article in my mailbox.  Normally, I just rip envelopes up without opening them; because, I know, through all the pieces of mail I get in my mailbox, the ones I don’t need to open, which goes from my mailbox, to my hands, and straight to…

David Henry Hwang’s, Yellow Face: It’s a wrap!

I had a very successful run of David Henry Hwang’s, Yellow Face.  The story challenged my acting abilities; and, the rewards for me are…I am a better actor; and, I have a deeper understanding of racism in America — not just to Asians but to all people that aren’t part of the majority machine. Ironically, I…

David Henry Hwang’s, Yellow Face

Yellow Face premiers on 23-September-2016, at 2000 Hours PDT, at the Beverly Hills Playhouse Theatre, located at 414 Mason Street, Fifth Floor, San Francisco, CA.  It is a thought-provoking, comedic, and prophetic play written by Tony-award Winner, David Henry Hwang, and directed by Jeffrey Sun of Beverly Hills Play House and Firescape Theatre.

Crying On Command (Cue)

One of the many characters I play in Yellow Face is Wen-Ho Lee.  His story is so sad for me; you can read about his experiences on the Internet.  As a student at Beverly Hills Playhouse, I created this character on my own, and my directors, Jeffrey Sun and Rob Zimmerman, tuned it up from there.  Like I…

My Journey As A Working Actor

I am an actor; whether I’m on television, film, or on stage, I am an actor — it is not just a career for me, but it is something that is designed into my person, and I love and need to act.  I act with passion and a yearning desire to learn more and more…

I’m a Liberal-republican & Conservative-democrat

An acquaintance of mine met up with me for lunch, and we were talking about politics. She asked me about my political views.  I told her I was a republican since I was 18 years old; but, this year, September 2016, I dumped the republican party and became an independent — not the American Independent party,…

He Is All I Need

For people that know me well, they know I have a healthy passionate faith and love in the Lord Jesus Christ, God The Father, and The Holy Spirit, whom I refer to as the Trinity.  I mention healthy passionate faith; because, in my relationship with the Trinity, the lessons He taught me on my ongoing journeys with Him…

Why Wouldn’t I believe In God?

I always enjoy conversations with people that ask me, “Why do you believe in God?”  Well, in my experiences on earth, I retort with a question, “Why wouldn’t I believe in God?”  I also say, “and, yes, Jesus Christ is the Son Of God, He is God, and I believe in Him, too — not…
