another interesting scrap of news is that i am a famous actor now. jk lol. rofl.

a movie i was kind of accidentally in on purpose was recently 'released' or 're-released' i'm not sure. i even have an actor profile at imdb.com. click here to see it.

what happened is that there is this guy i used to know living in philadelphia whose name was dan. dan was a film student at temple university. now he lives in a big apartment on the upper west side in new york and makes a lot of money making movies from what i understand. anyway when dan was a lowly film student he asked me to drive him to atlantic city so that he could take some video footage of the ocean. so i drove him there and he shot his film and then there was some film left over so he shot random footage of me (and also greg lytle) and it ended up being in his movie. that's how i am a star. am i going to get paid for this? does anyone know an agent who wants to handle my acting career? i am also in a few much more underground films mostly made by film students at temple university. in one such film i am featured wearing a pig mask and blinking my eyelids a lot in slow motion. if you are an agent who represents up and coming actors especially in the indie movie sector, please contact me.

if your brother or sister, daughter or son is in the 4th grade and needs to pass art class, i will provide drawings of your choice for a small fee.
